Author: Are You Doing These Marketing Activities?

Marketing Christian Books

I sometimes run into aspiring authors who tell me that they will only consider a traditional book contract for their manuscript. I have no problem with this mindset. I understand that desire to have a book accepted after being vetted by an editor.

Are you doing these marketing activities?

However, some of these authors are holding onto the ideal of a traditional book contract because they believe that the publisher will market the book for them. They like the idea of just writing.

The truth is that authors—whether traditionally published or indie published—are largely responsible for the marketing of their books. In fact, one royalty-paying, Christian publisher states right on their website their expectations of authors. Here is what this publisher says:

Author must:

  • Have created a fully developed marketing plan.
  • Keep a web presence.
  • Be technology savvy.
  • Know how to copy and paste URLs.
  • Can search the web for answers and solutions.
  • Check email daily.

#MotownWriters gifts you can give to help out writers…& help our network! #wirelesskeyboards #holidaygiftideas

It’s that time of year where we all struggle to find gifts.

In my family, we always had a rule to buy only what the other person needs. This way the kids would spend all year to “listening” to each other or looking to see what the other sibling needed. They knew their budget I would give them in advance and sometimes would save a little more to “help” the other.

In this regard, I give you a suggestion writers have said they needed.

Time.

Now I know there is no way you can give time. I wish. I think we all wish.

Yet, you can give them a way to save time.

A wireless keyboard has been a benefit to my life for decades.

I have been able to connect a keyboard to my phone, my Kindle and tablet to help me write books, deliver presentations, do research and more – all the while, I’m on the go.

To be honest, the best option I would suggest is:

https://amzn.to/2DEtUUU

No other accessory is needed. Not even a USB stick to the device. It’s Bluetooth and will connect to most devices.

There are other wireless or bluetooth keyboards you can get, but this one has been my favorite.

Why?

It’s foldable!

It keeps a charge for a long time.

It has a mouse.

Love it.
