Now for my marketing favs for the week:

  • 7 powerful ways to find new blog readers - It’s one thing to have a blog, it’s quite another to get readers. Now, it’s just a question of finding readers and (of course) keeping them. Here are a few tips to get you started.
  • Role of publisher in Social Media - What is a publisher’s role in the information age? Should publishers be engaging readers or authors? Should they be a resource, an educator, a publicity tool, or serve some other purpose beyond producing books?
  • The Author Power Team - As an author, you are always on the lookout for new ways to improve your marketing strategy and grow your platform. One of the best ways to do this is by developing your power team.
  • Quickest Blog Book Tour Guide - a virtual book tour or blog book tour not only saves money and travel expenses, it likely will reach a larger and more interested audience via the Internet.
  • The Real Secret about Twitter - Here are some key things to look at when measuring anyone's Twitter-success. It's not just about the # of Followers.
Today's giveaway is another Middle Grade Lot (MG needs some love!)
  • ARC egalley of What Happened on Fox Street (Aug 2010)
  • ARC of the new Judy Moody Girl Detective (Aug 2010)
  • Arc of Clementine Friend of the Week (Aug 2010)
All you have to do is comment today with your email address. After all - it is Friday!

Coming Next week - Ally Condie will stop by with an ARC of Matched, Suzie Townsend's Agent Contest, Amy Brecount White Contest/Giveaway, and more!

Have a great weekend!

These are great tips. I've been trying to blog regularly -- even if it's just profiling a good book or an author I like. Keeping a regular schedule seems to have added to my following as well.

We love both Judy Moody and Clementine in my house!

I think asking people to put their email in their comments is brilliant! I'm going to be doing a big contest in the next few weeks with lots of prizes...hunting down winners can be a challenge! Great idea, as usual, Shelli!!!

Am I being greedy if I enter another contest? So excited to have just won Fixing Delilah Hanniford! I guess I can't help but enter again being a teacher with a library for this age range.
