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. The problem is…Group Members are not participating enough to put out a monthly magazine. Yes I have my regulars though it would be lovely to see more group members join in.  If this doesn’t happen the magazine will dwingle until is it no more. I can’t push much harder than I already am. I have other work to do as well.  As an author we all belong to groups where we can share links to this magazine, we can encourage other authors to join the group and sign up for the…

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!

2.  Guest posting on more popular blogs:

Check out the more popular blogs that accept guest posts and write some good content.  Your own blog’s site will feature all your books somewhere on the side bars I expect, so there’s no need to keep mentioning them.

The Healing Paths of Fife by Diana Jackson

I LOVE this book by Diana Jackson very highly recommended

Rainne's Ramblings

The Healing Paths of Fife_Diana walked along the Fife Coastal Path from North Queensferry – beneath the famous Forth Rail Bridge – to St Andrews. On her way she ‘met’ some fascinating characters – from St Margaret in Dunfermline to the real Robinson Crusoe, Alexander Selkirk, in Lower Largo.

The further Diana travelled the more she became absorbed in the history of Fife and her affinity for the area grew.

As you read ‘The Healing Paths of Fife’ you may find yourself ‘walking beside Diana’ along this beautiful coast of East Scotland. Her experiences might help you with some of the challenges you face in your own life, or they may inspire you to visit this region…

The Magic of Stories

Open to Everybody.

Father’s Day is in June and here at Magic of Stories, we would like your ‘Dad Stories’.

For the whole of the month, we shall publish different stories about different dads.

We all have many memories about our father’s and I would like just one or two contained in 500-700 words. It can be anything, funny or sad things, wishful things, or just something about your dad you would really like to share.

You can include up to three photographs and also a link back to yourself, if you wish, such as a web or Facebook page.

If you are interested, send your story in an emailand I’ll let you know the day yours will be featured and give you a link when it is written.
