Marketing sites for authors

The Author Marketing Experts, Inc. web site as pulled up on my computer….I admit, I’m intrigued.

At the IndieRecon.org marketing event last week, I found another group dedicated to marketing for writers: Author Marketing Experts, Inc., founded by Penny C. Sansevieri.  I’ve been enjoying going through the web site. There are some great ideas on there…free articles include What Will Make Google Love Your Site (featured on Huffington Post) and Powerful Pinterest–A Quick How-To.  

I’m signing up for the free e-zine and, I have to admit, even though I know it don’t have money budgeted for publicity…I really want to call for the free consultation. It can’t hurt to find out more about it, right?

Meanwhile, I’ve been mentally making a note of marketing sites for authors that I’ve come across recently. Here are a few  more that come to mind:

  • Author Marketing Club (the premier author club here looks exciting but does have a cost associated with it–$105 per year.)
  • Marketing for Romance Writers Organization I was searching for something else one day when this popped up on my search engine. I haven’t really written anything in the romance genre, but it might be helpful for other fiction writers who dabble in romance. If you use it, please let me know what you think. There’s also Marketing for Romance Writers, which looks similar and has a very similar name and URL.
  • One more that I haven’t really had a chance to look at yet: Author Marketing Ideas. Let me know what you think.

If I ever get around to updating my blog pages, I may start a page for links for marketing sites for authors. Author Charles Yallowitz already has a nice list of book promotion sites over at Legends of Windemere, if you’re interested.

On a side note, somewhere I recently read that a romance writer self-published one of her books and has sold 11,000 copies of it every month since…which has me thinking maybe I’ve chosen the wrong genre to write in. 🙂

  1. Gwen,
    If you email me with a promo article about yourself, your book, writings, etc, I would be happy to feature you as a Guest Author on my blog.
    I’ve already had two Guests (last Friday and the Friday before),
    Alteratively, if you prefer, write the article in third person and I will post it as the featured author on any day & date you choose, providing you give me at least 3 days to set it up.
    Include this website address, so I can put you in my author’s website blogroll.
    I would also post your book in my Bookcase site, which is linked to my blog.
    I have share buttons on my articles, so you can share it with friends, family and fans on FB, Twitter, Google+, Reddit and more.
    Have a look and see what else I may be able to do to help promote you.
    There are NO CHARGES for any of this 🙂

  2. Thanks so much for this. As a self-published author, I have hit the point where I need to distribute beyond those who bought my book because they love me (God bless them all). I think these websites will be helpful–keep ’em coming.
