Friday's Marketing Round up (6/12)

First - thanks to all of you for the wonderful comments, well wishes and offline emails! So sweet. I just could hug each one of you. Love you guys (can you tell how sappy I am this week!)

Next week - my blogger friend, Chandler Craig over at Fumble with Fiction (agented by the great Dan Lazar) is starting The Agented Support Group - this group is for writers to share their crappy and good experiences with the agent process. Not a bitch session. Not any names. But to connect with other Pre-Agented writers to help them through the painful process of rejection and frustration. Lets all band together and help each other through the process we call publishing b/c I'm pretty sure you would not be reading my blog or this post unless writing was your passion. Check it out!

Here are my favs for the week:

Meeting agents at Conferences - (How you present yourself is all part of your unconscious branding). Try to avoid business and strike up a normal conversation. This may make a bigger impression than an awkward pitch in the restroom under the bathroom stalls.

Christina Katz's Platform chats for writers - tweets from Marketing expert on how to build a platform.

Twittersated- I do have to say that I am charmed by the format, the short 140 character long bits of people’s lives.

Facebook Frenzy - Tips for effective facebook

Tips for Twitter success
- Must haves on your twitter account.

Writing secrets to giving your book a PR edge - By following the secrets revealed below, fiction writers can greatly enhance their chances of getting print, radio, and TV exposure.

Blogging Basics- If you can't say anything nice, it might be better to say nothing at all.

Signings are they worth it? - An author talks about her experience and how it worked for her.

Have a great weekend!

Really, I just don't know how you get anything done--including writing your fab books--and still give us all this great info. I do feel like I need a 12-step support group though...kinda like, "My name is Vicky and I procrastinate by surfing all these cool sites!" :o)
