It’s publication day for Belle, Book & Christmas Candle!

More #FestiveReading to check out this sounds lovely and I’ve added it ot my #TBRList

Sharon Booth

So, it’s the first of December already! Can you believe it? The chocolate advent calendar will be coming out of hiding today (I hid it from myself and, even though I knew where I’d hidden it I was very good and didn’t pinch a single chocolate) and thoughts will turn, if they haven’t already, to when exactly we’ll be putting up the Christmas tree, and how much furniture we’ll have to juggle around/move upstairs to fit it in. We bought an enormous tree a couple of years ago and then moved the following summer to a tiny two-bedroomed house with a living room a quarter of the size of the old one.

Indie Publishing News 2018.1

Plaisted Publishing House produces a FREE Marketing Magazine for Indie Authors and those who support them – aka Editors, Graphic Designers, Illustrators, Marketers etc.  This magazine celebrated it’s second year in Feb 2018.  We have 526 members in the GROUP

We have 370 signed up to receive and share this magazine which widened the social media marketing for all participants.

Book promotions worth your time and trouble, and some which are not (IMHO).

I love this blog from Stevie Turner if you are thinking of doing any #BookPromos then this is well worth a read

Stevie Turner

Let’s start with the good news.  In my opinion here are a few marketing ideas / promotions which might help your book to sell better:

1.  BookBub promotions:

Yes they are expensive, but most authors who get accepted do notice a rise in their book’s ranking.  The trick is to get accepted in the first place – I’m still trying!

3.  Winning a reputable writing competition:

You can gain some kudos by doing this, and thereby win followers who will check out your books because they are interested.

4.  Give one book away free on Draft2Digital:
