Facebook is now the largest social network. I can see why? It’s by far the easiest one to set-up a profile and connect. I’m still blown away with the connections to high school classmates after twenty years of no contact. It only takes one person requesting to be your friend and then you are connecting with who they have connected with and vice versa. I just finished reading Hubspot’s Join the Fan Club: Facebook Fan Pages are Better for Business than Groups and Profiles . I agreed with them, but I mainly work with authors.

One of the most-asked questions I get from writers who have never written and published an eBook before is, “How would you promote a self-published eBook? Where would you go to even begin selling a product that hasn’t the backup from a traditional or otherwise publisher?” Well, that’s two, but many writers balk at attempting to play publisher. If they only knew it’s not as hard as they think it is, not to mention all the profits are theirs, I feel more writers would be comfortable to take on a project like this. Not only is self-publishing eBooks a profitable venture, but it also can be used as a ... market research, surveys and trends
Taking Book Tours Out of the Stores:
Despite my one-time intentions of writing a scathing polemic against the Oxford comma, this piece is nothing of the sort. I’ve come to realize that its supporters won’t be swayed by pragmatic, rational arguments, or by my cries of, “But why put one if you don’t need one?” So, here’s my final word on the subject... Read More Rock Springs by Richard Ford By now, most people have seen Girl with the Dragon Tattoo featured on bestseller lists around the world, heard about the movie version (released in 2009), or read it for their book club.

A-ha!: Book Marketing
It's not as hard as you may think. And, it's not as easy as you may think. But, in the end, it's after your book is completed - and published - that the real work begins. Regardless of how you published it, you are still the best person to market your book. With the publishing industry changing so rapidly - big publishers cutting back on manuscripts, small publishers closing their doors, even POD companies cutting back on personnel, some people may think this is not a good time to write and promote a book. They would be wrong. Write your book. Continue reading "Promoting Your Book in 2009" » industry trends, business articles and survey research

How To Get Published, Part 10: Be Your Own Publicist
Welcome back to the How to Get Published series. Now it's time to get out there and sell the book. Actually, this part should be happening while you're still writing the book (if it's non-fiction) or editing the book (if it's fiction). In other words, it is never too early to create buzz. Here's an analogy: sometimes PR people contact me, wanting me to write about their product. The reality is that it's almost never a product I already know--iPods sort of sell themselves--but instead, a small niche product. Here's the reality--if they had purchased some ad space on a few blogs and I had ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Experience with "virtual book tours" for book release? Positive ...
I interviewed Dan Pink (author of Drive, Free Agent Nation, etc) he's done several virtual book signings that he was very positive about. 1. His publisher sent a number of signed book plates to the book sellers prior to the event, that were pasted on the flyleaf of his books -- thus signed copies. 2. He "appeared" live via webcam, and the stores had a live mic so patrons could ask Dan questions. The Q&As lasted about 1 hr. Bookstores/publisher/author have been very happy with the results. Of course, Dan is a well known best-selling author whose spoken at numerous conferences (including TED). So I think the virtual tour idea ...
