Hey everyone amd welcome to another glorious Sunday! I am so far behind on my blog that I may never catch up. For those of you who didn’t know, I was without internet last week from Monday night through Friday afternoon. Thankfully it has been restored and everything is going great guns again. But! It has just about ruined my productivity for the podcast, and gotten me way behind on posts that I wanted to do. So I am starting out this week fresh, and also, using info that I gleaned from my survey. Thank you to all who participated. I am going to be sending the book to the winner as soon as I can – I told you I am BEHIND.
Thank you to Janie Franz, who was scheduled to be interviewed last week, but due to these unforeseen circumstances had to reschedule. I promise she will be on soon!
The survey showed that most everyone wants marketing info. That’s good because that is something that I strive to learn about on a daily basis. So without further ado…
News and views you can use
This week, I did get internet back in time to be a part of a multi-author event on Facebook called March to a Bestseller (3) because it is the third year. I picked up a ton of awesome writing books on a variety of subjects all for .99 cents each. If you have not been a part of March to a Bestseller, you should definitely mark it on your calendar for 2016. It’s usually held in October.
I also did hear about a few new things this week that I want to share.
1. A new social media site called Blab.im — it’s a site where you can post audio and video and have up to four guests come on with you LIVE. Sounds very cool. Check it out.
2. A great article about social media and book marketing is found here at PW.com – writer beware … it will tell you things you might not want to hear.
3. A great view to a marketing timeline, and good info on how to get a timeline set up. All authors who have a book to market should be doing this – check it out here.
And I hope those links help you get more marketing done more efficiently.
Have a great week everyone!
