Friday Five/Marketing Round Up (10/2)


I know a few of you have given me awards this past month and I SOOOOOOOOOO appreciate it. I have not had a chance to pass them on but I plan to once my book is turned in.

In addition, I have been tagged a couple of times and plan to follow through on that as well.

I also want to apologize for not visiting your blogs as must as I usually do - my time has been spent on finishing this book to go out on submission to editors. I promise to catch up! Thanks for understanding :)

Marketing Round Up

Here are my favs for the week:

Social networking questions -Editor Andrew Karre at Caralrhoda/Lerner Books has been talking about social networking in several places. Get his take!

So you want to be a speaker? Most of us are asked to speak on panels. Here are some tips on how to be a great speaker.

Self promotion - Some authors disdain it, some rejoice in it, while others have a love-hate relationship with it. It's all in the attitude.

Discuss board for book promoters - whether you are a reader, writer or in the business of promoting, this forum may interest you.

AME newsletter - AME does a great weekly newsletter with marketing advice.

Content does not market itself - One of the common misconceptions that some new bloggers start out with is that in order to find readers for their blog all they’ll have to do is regularly write quality content.

10 Golden rules for Social Media - Greg Pincus offers 10 Golden Rules for people or businesses (in publishing or otherwise) who want to engage with communities or individuals on social media.

Have a great weekend!

Getting your book ready to sub is the most important thing. I think all of us bloggers understand that. Thanks for the links.

You are a writer, so that's what this is all about. I'm so excited you've got it revised and ready to go. Woo-hoo. And, as always, thanks for the super links.

You've just reminded me that someone gave me a blog award a while back, and how did I repay them? By forgetting about it!
