Reasons Why Authors Should Actively Promote Their Books




Many authors simply want to write books and get published.  They hope to make money, but that’s not what drives them.  There is also ego, pride, and one’s legacy at stake for sure.  But most of all, writers want to impact the world through their words and to truly make a difference.  To achieve any of these goals, authors must actively promote theirs books and author brand. So why don’t many authors do just that?

Authors who do not seek out publicity will cite and or many of these factors:
·         Short on time
·         Don’t have a budget for publicity
·         Fear speaking to the media or groups
·         Don’t know what to do
·         Lack of marketing skills

These are very real factors but in the end they are excuses and they stand in the way of what authors truly need to do.

Authors need to effectively promote their books because:

·         It allows them to be branded as an expert.
·         It helps generate speaking engagements.
·         The media validates the author to a publisher or literary agent who gets inspired to take on your next book.
·         It allows you to be positioned as a paid spokesperson.
·         It can get one’s website traffic up – and help with getting potential consumers of other products and services offered for sale on the site.
·         It positions you to share a positive message with millions of people with impact and influence.

Quite simply, if authors don’t promote – or invest in the promotion of – their books, then who will?  For the self-published, they know book promotions and marketing fall 100% on them.  But for those with a publisher, they need a wake-up call.

The sad truth is that most publishers do not do much to promote their authors. Many do nothing at all.  Authors, if they are to improve their prospect of long – and short-term success, will need to take responsibility for the promoting, marketing and branding of themselves as a writer. If authors want to generate book sales and influence people, they need to actively promote their writings or hire someone to it for them.  Authors need to do their share, both in the budgeting of their time for PR and in how they spend for professional help.

For the past 18 years at Media Connect, where I am the chief marketing officer for the nation’s largest book publicity firm, I probably have helped over a thousand authors achieve book publicity, but there were thousands more whom I spoke to that ended up telling me they weren’t ready to invest in book publicity and admittedly were not up to the task of doing it themselves. Needless to say, most of these authors’ books did not fare well.

Authors should first think about all of the types of marketing and publicity that they could theoretically participate in and then figure out which ones make the most sense for them. But they can’t simply do nothing or leave things to chance. Here is a list of 15 things an author could do – and this is by no means an exhaustive list:

·         Send books out for review with traditional publications.
·         Share a digital galley with online book reviewers.
·         Secure radio interviews, by phone or in person.
·         Get interviewed by podcasters.
·         Guest-post on Facebook, blogs, and other social media.
·         Speak before an organization and sell your book.
·         Schedule book signings at bookstores, libraries, and schools.
·         Appear on local television shows.
·         Do a regional book tour, connecting with media, stores, and clubs in several surrounding cities or states.
·         Buy FB or Google ads.
·         Do an email blast to all of your contacts, asking them for help or to buy the book – or both.
·         Post provocative videos on You Tube.
·         Connect with readers on Twitter.
·         Offer your book for free for a limited time to create word of mouth buzz.
·         Seek out testimonials and endorsements.

The truth is there are endless initiatives one can do to promote themselves or their book, though some things certainly have a bigger pay-off than others. The main reason you should do publicity for yourself and your book is up to you – the rewards are many. Keep in mind that PR will pay for itself over time. Even years from now, the links and clips that you generate now will help position you as an expert. You can parlay that media exposure into some great opportunities – but you must start now!

Interview with author Mary M. McNaughton


Sin of Ambition

1. What inspired me to write Sin of Ambition, to force me from taking an idea or experience and conveying it into a book? What inspired me to write my story was my need to know if I had an aptitude for writing. My personal past is littered with instances of neglect and unwelcomes, these memories of my childhood brought laid the foundation of the book. I also wanted to go beyond those memories and explore the desire for recognition, ambition and challenges that my childhood created in me.

2. What is it about and who’s the targeted reader? Sin of Ambition deals with wealth and love, the protagonist’s determination for success, and the importance of education. I hope to reach any reader looking for an intriguing and character driven story. More specifically, I hope to reach those that have been touched my abuse or neglect in some form, in hopes that relate to my tale. I also look to reach women who have a strong desire and drive to success in life, both personally and professionally.

3. Everlasting thought for readers after finishing the book? Sin of Ambition will open different interpretations to readers who will embark on their individual journey. Thoughts that may remain long after reading the book may be how a person deals with humanity in achieving their life goal.

4. What advice/words of wisdom I have for fellow writers? The most important piece of information I would recommend is to make your story appealing and desirable. Additionally, never sit in front of your computer to long, forcing yourself to write. Let words and writing come more naturally.

5. Trends in book world and where publishing industry is heading? The book publishing industry is shrinking while other methods are on the rise. We are in an environment in which individuals can publish/advertise modus operandi over Internet worldwide.

6. Challenges I had in writing my book? Story-wise, my main issues was making sure that I develop and maintain common threads throughout the story. I wanted to make sure that there was a central theme that carried from beginning to end. In my personal life, I struggled balancing my time with work, family and volunteering while also dedicating myself to the writing process.

7. If people can buy one book why mine? Sin of Ambition provides the reader with an intense sentiment that success in life is possible despite early life’s hardships such as: rejection, poverty and physical disfigurement. This story specifically deals with the wave of women’s liberation in the 60-70’s and subsequently, triggers a movement that enables women on the workforce to obtain high positions in corporations or government.

Interview with author Tami Reeves, RN



Bleeding Hearts: A True Story of Alzheimer’s Family, and the Other Woman

1.      What really inspired you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and conveying it into a book? The fact that most of society looks down on a person who “moves on” when their loved one or partner becomes mentally incapacitated is the reason I wrote Bleeding Hearts.  I wanted to be able to bring awareness to the kind of support a new partner can bring to the other victims of Alzheimer’s, i.e. the spouse/partner, children and family -something that is not really talked about.

2.      What is it about and whom do you believe is your targeted reader? The story of Bleeding Hearts is a memoir of my husband and my journey during the last three years of his late wife’s battle with early onset Alzheimer’s.  I met my, now, husband on a dating service (at the encouragement of his children to find a partner and to “move on”) and became a source of support to him and his family, throughout the journey.  The targeted reader, in my opinion, is the partner, children, family or anyone who knows of someone living with a partner/spouse who is mentally incapacitated -for any reason- so that they can see how a new partner can be of great support.

3.      What do you hope will be the everlasting thoughts for readers who finish your book? What should remain with them long after putting it down? That no one should judge anyone else for moving along their journey in any situation.  We all have to adjust and move in our lives the way we deem necessary without having to worry about judgement or scrutiny from anyone.  There are many books on Alzheimer’s; the sad stories of “lost” memories and loved ones because of the disease.  But with my book the reader could and should come away with a feeling of hopefulness in a way to deal with one of the aspects of Alzheimer’s that no one discusses -the loneliness of being the partner of an Alzheimer’s patient.

4.      What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers? Stay true to your cause.  Don’t let anyone tell you your thoughts are wrong.  They may be different, but they are never wrong.

5.      What trends in the book world do you see and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading? To me, books on tape or audio books seem to be where books are heading.  There are some who just want a printed book in their hands, encompassing all of the sensory attachments to a printed book.  So, I don’t think the printed book, will ever completely disappear.  And then there are others who like the modern version of an e-book.  But in my circle of friends I am becoming more and more aware of how much everyone (myself included) loves to listen to books being read to them.  Perhaps that is where “publishing” will be heading some day soon -all books may become audio books.

6.      What great challenges did you have in writing your book? The biggest challenge in writing my book was in lacking confidence of my skills in grammar.  I am a CODA (Child Of Deaf Adults) and so my childhood did not equip me with any natural ability to write correctly.  While I have had college classes in English, towards my degree, I still lack complete confidence that I am writing correctly.  Therefore, I hired an editor to edit my book, but I am currently pursuing an advanced writing course.

7.      If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours? Bleeding Hearts is a unique perspective on a sensitive and never discussed subject which most everyone has been touched by -Alzheimer’s.  As in all Alzheimer’s stories it is a sad one, but the story showcases the way for love, happiness and triumph over this heinous disease.

Interview with author Will Damron



The Tercentennial Baron


1. What really inspired you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and conveying it into a book?
The idea for this book began with not being able to find the kind of story I wanted to read! Years ago, in high school, I became tired of the werewolf/vampire trope, and wondered why no recent writer had built a series around an original supernatural being. Enter the bellirolt, a creature I invented for The Tercentennial Baron: a demon that inhabits the body of a human, and forces him (or her) to kill others and consume their souls in order to survive. Then I thought: what if one of these creatures, who look just as human as the rest of us, had this life forced upon him, and didn’t want it? That man became “the Baron.” When I graduated college after earning my theater degree, I knew this was the story I wanted to write.

2. What is it about and whom do you believe is your targeted reader?
The story centers on a 13-year-old boy, Percival Dunbar, who lives in modern Scotland and has a unique interest in the supernatural. When a spate of supernatural phenomena in his town lead him face-to-face with the murderous Tercentennial Baron—the most terrifying figure of paranormal legend—Percival thinks he’s met his end. But the Baron reveals he’s come to Percival’s town not to attack people, but to protect them. And if Percival is to discover why, he must unlock the secrets of the Baron’s past. Only by working together can he and the Baron protect his town from a looming supernatural war.

My target reader is anyone aged 11 or 12 (depending on reading maturity) and up who loves fantasy-adventure, magic, and history—especially Scottish history.

3. What do you hope will be the everlasting  thoughts for readers who finish your book? What should remain with them long after putting it down?
It’s hard to answer this without giving away any of the twists and turns of the story! I hope readers remember the individual, character-defining moments in the journey of the Tercentennial Baron, as his story takes the reader through 300 years of history – and through locales ranging from Scotland to Ireland, England, and Italy. I hope readers are excited by the swashbuckling nature of this sort of epic, as well as touched by the poignant moments where the Baron grapples with the dark nature of his existence. Ultimately, what I want to remain with readers (and listeners) is the power of the immense decisions young Percival must make as he learns more of the Baron’s story. I want readers to ask themselves, “Wow… what would I do in that situation?”

4. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers?
Stick with it. I am very upfront with people that this is a self-published novel, and I say that with pride. I was rejected by 75 different agents, managers, and editors before I decided to bring this story to the world on my own. You have so many options for how to publish your work these days; don’t count anything out. Find the avenue that feels truest to you, and pursue it. After all, learning to be a successful businessperson is just as important as being a creative person in the arts today.

5. What trends in the book world do you see and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?
Based on my experience as a sought-after audiobook narrator, a writer who couldn’t get published with major houses, and someone who reads the trades daily, I believe the way people want to consume written stories (and the stories they want to consume) is changing faster than most big publishers can keep up with. In the audiobook world we’re in a unique place: audio sales have been increasing remarkably over the last several years, and indeed that’s the only format I’m aware of in publishing that is seeing significant year-to-year positive sales growth. I think the main reason for that is it’s just so darn convenient. Listen to a whole book on your commute to and from work, in a couple days? Duh! I don’t see the best or most successful books being published only by major publishers, nor do I see that only happening with indie publishers. I think the future of this business belongs to those who are quick enough on their feet to adapt to changes as they come, and innovative enough to consistently offer new ways to absorb stories. That could be big publishers not weighed down by bureaucracy or uninspired leadership, and/or small publishers who hit upon some great stories with unique ways to bring them to people. But I feel like adaptability is going to be key. And especially in the age of Game of Thrones, Pottermore, and binge-watching, anything that helps readers feel more immersed in the world of the author will be incredibly valuable.

6. What great challenges did you have in writing your book?
Making consistent time to devote to it! One of the reasons this book took me 8 years (yup, EIGHT) from inception to publication was that I was working multiple full-time jobs (all of which involved acquiring new skills) AND moving homes while I wrote it. I lived in three different states and worked as everything from a museum ticket-seller to a waiter, bartender, historical actor, and narrator while writing the book. That meant weeks or months sometimes where I didn’t even look at the script. That can be valuable once you finish the rough draft, but I won’t let time get away from me so much again.

7. If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours?
The Tercentennial Baron is a blend of classic adventure, spooky fantasy, and a coming-of-age story, all with a brand-new supernatural creature for readers to sink their teeth into. (No pun intended.) (OK, maybe a little.) Fans of Harry Potter, Interview with the Vampire, and even Outlander will thoroughly enjoy this book. It’s got whimsy, romance, swashbuckling adventure, and ultimately deals with what it means to be a good person who must wrestle with your inner demons. I can’t think of any better reason to pick up a book J.

Interview with Author Anna Yusim, MD



Fulfilled: How the Science of Spirituality Can Help You Live a Happier, More Meaningful Life.


1. What really inspired you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and conveying it into a book? In my profession, there is a long-standing divide between science and spirituality.  My book was my effort to reconcile this seeming dichotomy by highlighting the science behind spirituality, sharing my own personal healing journey, and describing my work with patients in my psychiatry private practice.  The main idea of my book is that often the ailments we experience in life result from a disconnection from our own soul.  Our souls are the blueprint we bring into this world of how we are meant to grow, change, evolve, transform, and meaningfully contribute to humankind over the course of our lives. Once we learn to hear our soul’s whispers and uncover its deepest longings, it will guide us to a life of meaning and fulfillment. For this reason, I believe complete healing involves more than a clinical outcome or bringing a set of symptoms into remission.  True healing and lasting fulfillment require a spiritual transformation and reconnection to one’s soul.

2. What is it about and whom do you believe is your targeted reader?   I am writing this book for introspective seekers who are just beginning a journey of introspection and those who have done a lot of work on themselves over the years, perhaps in therapy, yoga, meditation, acupuncture, various forms of medication, or other modes of self-help. Despite being better off than where you started, you may still find yourself falling short of true healing and fulfillment. If you are reading these words, maybe you feel an emptiness in your life that you do not know how to satiate. You may look like you “have it all,” yet deep down—in those rare moments when your defenses fall away and you stand naked, honest, and alone before yourself—you return to a sad and lonely place, aware of a deep inner void and with no idea how to fill it. This book will give you a road map to healing the old obstacles that have plagued you and cultivating new ways of living in the world that will change your point of view. It will help you tune in and listen to the voice of your soul, your best friend and greatest guide.

3. What do you hope will be the everlasting thoughts for readers who finish your book?  What should remain with them long after putting it down? I share the story of my process with readers in hopes that some of what they read here will resonate in their own lives. Perhaps my story is not just “my” story, but is a part of “our” story—the human journey toward finding our true selves and our unique places in this world. By cultivating authenticity, aligning with our soul, and embracing our interconnectedness, I hope my book will enable readers to take their first step toward greater fulfillment.

4. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers? My advice to fellows writers is to surrender to the writing process…recognize that you not fully and completely in control of writing this book, but are instead a channel for this information to come through you from the divine source, whether that be God, a collective consciousness, the Universe, or something else entirely.  In your writing, let yourself be inspired by synchronicity and go with the inspiration as it comes…

Dr. Anna Yusim is a board-certified psychiatrist with a private practice in New York City's Upper East Side. During her studies at Stanford University, she worked as a neurobiology researcher studying the effects of stress on the brain in the laboratory of Dr. Robert Sapolsky PhD.  After completing her studies at Stanford, Yale Medical School and the NYU Residency Training Program in Psychiatry, Dr. Yusim felt that something was missing from her life. In her quest to find it, she traveled, lived and worked in over 50 countries, while studying Kabbalah, learning Buddhist meditation and working with South American shamans and Indian gurus.  Her book, Fulfilled, integrates the tenets of Western medicine, psychology and neurobiology with the universal spiritual principles Dr. Yusim learned in her own personal journey to fulfillment.

Interview with author Steven Heller



Teaching Graphic Design: Course Offerings and Class Projects from the Leading Graduate and Undergraduate Programs



1. What really inspired you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and conveying it into a book?
I write books. That’s what I do. I’ve always loved the form and the process. This book could possibly be a website or app, but the book is a more tactile tool. 

2. What is it about and whom do you believe is your targeted reader?
Teaching Design is about “teaching design”. Its pretty clear. These are syllabi that may inspire design teachers to include some or all of the characteristics and tools into their own teaching. 

3. What do you hope will be the everlasting thoughts for readers who finish your book? What should remain with them long after putting it down?
I hope they will think more seriously about what and how they teach. 

4. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers?
Find a good idea. Do your homework. And make certain you have an audience. Then think of how the book can be expanded to other platforms. 

5. What trends in the book world do you see and where do you think the book publishing industry is
heading?
Books are not going away. Publishing will embrace more media, but books are not anachronisms. 

6. What great challenges did you have in writing your book?
Finishing it. Then getting it publicized. There are hundreds of ways to sell a book and hundreds of ways to fail. 

7. If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours?
It has to be the one they need. This is not a book for pleasure, it serves a purpose, therefore the reader has to know what that purpose is.

Why Authors Should Assume Success When Pitching Media



When marketing a book, one must use the assumptive close technique, an approach based on speaking confidently and acting as if the person you request something of will always say “yes.”  

So just how does one pull this off?

You start by getting yourself psyched up.  You must believe in your book and self.  Meditate.  Work out.  Do something that relaxes you or builds your confidence.  Find a way to ground yourself and give yourself a pep talk.  Know that you can do this and visualize the success that you seek.

Next to be successful means to put in the hard work and effort needed.  It’s not just a matter of speaking with confidence, but of acting with energy, urgency, and vision.  Do your research.  Spend time brainstorming.  Build up your connections.  Find a way to best reach someone and to offer him or her something of perceived value.

Use positive, empowering language.  Don’t use words that sound neutral, or indecisive or wimpy.  Speak powerfully.  Get rid of “may” or “might” or “could” and replace with “absolutely,” “certainly,” and “shall.”  Replace generic concepts with specific examples.  Attach yourself to known people, events, and accepted ideas.

Speak with lots of excitement and energy but don’t sound high or crazed.  Let people feel you’re taking them somewhere.

Assume people will say yes to you – now just give them the details.  If you don’t believe people will say yes, address your weak points.  Anticipate what others will think or ask and have answers for them.  In fact, don’t wait for a question to be asked; just simply address it in your pitch.

Don’t ask any questions unless you are certain you know the answers – and that the answers would help support your claims.

Seek to make a personal connection.   If one likes you or feels he identifies with or understands you, the more likely he will be open to you and willing to buy in.

Don’t give them a reason not to like you.  Don’t be late.  Don’t dress like a loser.  Don’t mix political – sexist – racist – religious views into the conversation.  Assume they want to speak with you and act as if you have a good reason to reach out to them.

Speak slowly and smile.  The media is made up of people.  They need to hear a calm, confident, concise pitch from a friendly face.

My motto is “no is a delayed yes.”  Keep trying and assume success is around the corner.  Because it is.
