Post-Release Post #7: Marketing (Blog Tours)

Posted by Lisa L. on Friday, May 16, 2014,

I've had this post sitting here for a long time, waiting to be published. So here goes! 

This post should really be called Marketing for the Indie Author because I'm pretty sure everything I'm about to say does not apply to authors published by Big 5 publishers or their imprints.  Although to be fair, authors pubbed by large houses still have to do a lot of marketing work via social media if they want to be successful.  I was going to do one post on Marketing but it turned out to be way, way, ...

To Entice You . . . An Excerpt from a Friend

Posted by Lisa L. on Saturday, March 2, 2013,

I've been given permission to post the first chapter of Michael Infinito's In Blog We Trust which is available now. This book had me turning pages all through the night so I'm thrilled to be able to whet readers' appetites with this chapter.

First Chapter of IN BLOG WE TRUST


           The crowd erupted into chaotic screams as Incorrigible, the world’s biggest rock band, made their way to the stage. Wasting little time, they picked up their instruments, immediately breaking into the song,...

Happy Release Day! Michael Infinito's In Blog We Trust

Posted by Lisa L. on Thursday, January 17, 2013,

A couple of years ago, a writer contacted me about my agent.  He had a full out to her and he wanted to know if I was happy with her or not.  We emailed back and forth and quickly became friends.  Eventually, my agent offered him a contract, which was really cool because now we had even more in common than before.  We were on submissions together for what felt like years.  We exchanged short emails almost every single day.  Usually one to two liners, just enough to keep each other's spirits u...

You Tell Me: What Do You Look For In A Blog?

Posted by Lisa L. on Tuesday, August 14, 2012,
To comment, please visit this post on blogger: 

Last week, Jeff O had a great post called Will Success Change Your Blog?  He talked about what happens to writers' blogs once they've achieved what we're all working toward:  the coveted book contract.  Blog posts tend to slow down and the blog becomes more about the author's self-promotion than anything else.  I think this is extremely tricky to navigate.  I started blogging a couple of years ago for one reas...

Posted by Lisa L. on Thursday, July 26, 2012,

I just want to give a shout-out to three amazing writers who also happen to be wonderful people who have very good news to announce this week.
