Every day there are at least five emails telling me how I can do something easier, faster and smarter to become an instant success.
I don’t buy it.
Maybe it works for some people, but I have found the slow day-to-day work yields greater, long term results. The results may not be spectacular overnight, but they get there in time. You may not want to hear “slow and steady wins the race,” but it is true.
The big challenge with the slow way is staying with it.» Continue Reading This Article...
As a new author, you may think that it is more important to concentrate on writing your book than to worry about building your platform. The problem with this thinking is that marketing is actually 90% of the job of being a successful author today. Waiting until your book is finished is sort of like raising your child to adulthood before you begin saving for his or her college education.
Marketing your book does not have to be hard, but it does take time. Finding, connecting and building a relationship with your audience is not something that you can do in a week. Working on marketing for a small amount of time each day will save you valuable time when you are ready to publish a book. It is sort of like that saving account. If you start the moment a child is born and save a little bit every month, then in eighteen years you will have a pretty good sum, even if you only save a little at a time. If you wait till Sally or Joey is a senior in high school, then that monthly deposit is going to have to be pretty steep.» Continue Reading This Article...

You may think it’s not ethical to do something “nice” and make money off of it at the same time. But if you had a choice between creating publicity through a nice project and simply creating some publicity, you’d probably choose the nice project every time.
The news is full of media darlings doing anything possible to get a little camera coverage. Instead of yelling and getting drunk or married or divorced in order to get attention, how about doing something nice?» Continue Reading This Article...
John Kremer explained in his book, 1001 Ways to Market Your Books, that there are basically two fundamentals in book marketing.
He said that these two fundamentals must be worked on simultaneously. No matter how great your promotion efforts are, if you do not have your book easily and readily available to the buyer, then your efforts are wasted. At the same time, if your books are distributed to all the major bookstores and available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and online venues, but no one knows about your books, then it will do you little good.» Continue Reading This Article...
Do you want to sell a lot of books? If so, step right onto the bus because there is a crowd of folks who have the same desire. It should be only a short ride, maybe 10 or 15 years . . .
If that last sentence startled you, here’s the truth. If you plan to sell a lot of books, it’s going to take a lot more work than getting on a bus and waiting for the driver to get you to your destination.» Continue Reading This Article...

There is an old analogy about how to catch a monkey. When hunters wanted to capture monkeys they would place a jar on the jungle floor filled with biscuits or shiny marbles. A monkey would curiously reach his hand inside the jar to grab the treats, but he wouldn’t just grab one. He wanted them all. The hunters would try to grab the monkey and even though he would scream in panic and try to get away, the monkey would not take his hand out of the jar and lose even one of his treasures.» Continue Reading This Article...
More and more libraries are increasing their digital reading budget while cutting back in many of the traditional print venues. Magazines are one of the latest offerings. Readers can now download as many as 10 magazines at a time in some cases and all for the price of a library card.
This is another good reason for authors to promote their books by writing magazine articles. The magazine may boast a subscription readership of tens of thousands but once the magazine is added to the library database that number can easily double. Presently not all libraries have digital magazines and some only have a limited selection, but carrying digital magazines is quickly becoming the norm and will soon I expect be widespread.
Authors looking for freelance opportunities can now preview many of the leading magazines digitally. Instead of having to subscribe to a magazine or buy one at the local newsstand, you can read the issue cover to cover by checking one out at the library.» Continue Reading This Article...
