Make Mine Mystery

When it comes to marketing my books, like most authors, I am completely out of my element and totally inexperienced.
What I want to do is write, tell a great story, perfect my craft but if my books don’t sell because of my lack of knowledge of the marketing world than its almost impossible for me to keep writing for anybody but myself, which is okay but I usually write stories to convey a message.
So it came to my attention that a book by an author called the 30-Day Book Marketing challenge by Rachel Thompson might be of help. It is jammed packed with loads of useful information and websites to get you where you want to go in the world of Social Media Marketing.
Most authors have embraced blogging, Facebook, and Twitter, you congratulate yourself by thinking, “I have arrived”. Now what? Well, isn’t that the 50 million dollar question?
One of the first things Rachel did is brand herself-experimenting with pre-release activities prior to her book launch. She actively markets her own books, 100%. So isn’t just talking the talk, she is actually doing it.
Day 1 of her 30 day Challenge is all about Twitter-she believes Twitter is a great channel for networking and visibility.
Rachel gives a lot of helpful information on how to use it to your best advantage and feels twitter is an important book marketing tool because it’s where your READERS are. Book marketing is about BOOK DISCOVERY.
Next month, if I get some interest, I’ll post some of her go to websites and helpful information on your bio and pinning a tweet.
