Advice for Writers: 029

Another week full of advice for writers:

An Author Who Markets Her E-Books in Airports, by Ann Okerson. This is an interesting piece about how a romance author uses family and friends to help plug her writing efforts.

Five Ways to Fix a Boring Bio, by Keith Cronin. I love the first way: Do something interesting.

58 Ways to Create Persuasive Content Your Audience Will Love, by Henneke. While this post is on a copywriting blog, the tips are valuable for all writers and bloggers.

Editing Your Life, by Julianna Baggott. I'm a sucker for contemplative blog posts that connect writing with living. Here's such a post from Baggott.

How to Write a Novel in Two Sentences, by Nick Thacker. What a title for a blog post!

Sorry Gnat said...

Okay, I subscribed to Claire Bidwell Smith's blog and Hope Edelman's blog; Hope wrote a book which is a classic about motherless daughters, and it fills the hole in all our souls. Claire Bidwell Smith has a long list of titles which seem very real, very communicative, and having read her memoir, i'm open to it. I love memoir. I also have Google +, Linkedin, and FB and checked my name on different blogs. I was on about 4 -5 of them, with some a lot of pages, some repeat info and one porno comment; oh dear. I am having trouble with Feed, my computer or someone, that man behind the screen with a Quaker Oats Tube, says can't do; i conquered LinkedIn, baby, I'll get to Feed. I am blogging, FB-ing, linkedinnnyyyyyy, and do an occasional Google plus; it is late, but i think I'm up to date; not sure; bless everyone

I enjoyed the post about marketing the e-book in an airport. I was excited to read that another author is using business cards to promote her book as my first shipment of marketing business cards for my book arrived about a week ago!!

Thanks for sharing Robert.
