T hree years ago, I started Marketing Tips For Authors and I have met a ton of wonderful authors, authors-to-be, and book marketing experts. I have had the privilege of inviting talented authors to submit guest posts. Some were best selling authors like Jerry Jenkins (Do-It-Yourself Marketing), others were authors who had their first book pending publication.
I also had a number of talented book marketing experts freely share their knowledge. They wrote on things like how to sell more book, how to use social media in your book marketing plan, and a host of other evergreen articles that still lend value to their readers.
But the time has come for me to wrap up my work with Marketing Tips For Authors and move on. A number of factors came into play when making this decision, and it took me a long time to make it. I’m proud of what we have built on this blog. One thing that made the decision easier to make was knowing that the blog would live on.
If you look to the right, you’ll see a Google search box for this blog. Type in any book marketing subject you want to read about and you’ll find links to everything written on this blog about that subject.
So poke around, read and continue to learn . Thanks to everyone for making my run on Marketing Tips For Authors something I’ll remember and cherish forever. And to all the authors and authors-to-be, I wish you all my best. Remember, once you write your book, you’ll have a legacy that will long out live you. My guess is that you’ll never truly know all the people you’ll bring joy to.
