Sell Your Books! Part 2
Posted by Sally Jenkins in Books, Promotion, Resources, Self-publishing on October 24, 2012
In my last post I introduced you to Debbie Young – book promotion guru. And this post concludes her sage advice:
Many writers worry about the time-consuming nature of maintaining a presence on social media. What is the best platform (blog, Twitter, Facebook etc.) to concentrate on?
On Radio 4 alone there are plenty of magazine shows that need topical, expert material for their programmes – Woman’s Hour, Money Box, the Today Programme, PM. Your book and the knowledge or experience that enabled you to write it might give you viable ideas for an article, or an engaging comment to follow up a programme.
Approach your target programme’s production office with a well-thought out idea, backed up by your credentials as the author of a book on the subject, and you may get lucky. (Other national outlets can also be approached in this spirit – the nature of your book will dictate what should be your priority, e.g. a special interest national magazine in your field.)
Quotes About Writing
Posted by Sally Jenkins in Resources on April 16, 2012
In the last week I’ve come across a couple of quotes posted on Facebook about writing and I thought you might like them as much as I did.
Jackie Sayle posted the first one, by the German novelist and short story writer, Thomas Mann, in the Bring Back Fiction to Women’s Magazines! group. I related to it instantly – what do you think?
This one, posted by Marilyn Rodwell, made me feel inspired – hope it does the same for you!
