Day 6 of the Poetic Proposal Blog Tour.

Today is the penultimate day of the ‘A Poetic Proposal’ blog tour, and it is my pleasure to give thanks to Marie Ann Bailey for hosting today’s stop.

Marie’s blog is called ‘1WriteWay’ and is a treasure chest of all things book and writing related. She is a self-confessed writer, knitter, and stray cat magnet. Her ‘About 1WriteWay’ page is an example to all of us that either leave the default page, or do the bare minimum. Check it out.

Amongst her other posts and reviews Marie has recently been including chapters from her novel in progress ‘Clemency’. This was a really interesting series of posts made as she worked on the novel for NaNoWriMo, posting the entire novel, although in her own words, with a lot of stuff left out. See the Prologue here.

You should visit Marie’s blog here and say hi.

Thank you so much, Marie, for featuring the ‘Poetic Proposal’ blog tour today, and for your support.

BOOK BUZZ TIPS

A successful book launch can really make a difference:

  • Early sales help a book start out with a good sales rank.
  • This gives the book better visibility, especially if the book lands on any of the bestseller lists (even in a subcategory).
  • The customers-also-bought list also builds faster.
  • If sales taper off, those early sales prevent the rank from sliding as quickly.
  • Early sales improve the chances for early reviews.

In this article, I will present a variety of ideas to assist with book promotion before, during, and shortly after the book launch.

To help illustrate some of my points, I will feature strategies used by fantasy author Charles E. Yallowitz, who is presently promoting his own book launch for Curse of the Dark Wind, the sixth book in his Legends of Windemere series.
