Thanks for watching!


  1. Fantastic ideas! One popular write who doesn't use social media is Cal Newport. Your list of things to do to promote books had lots of ways I haven't tried. Thank you for the ideas. A couple of years ago I sent a press release to our local paper, promoting a book signing my husband and I were doing at a coffee shop. It was a huge success! We sold out of our books in 2 hours.

    1. Wow. That is amazing! Local papers can really help.

  2. Great video and tips, Chrys! I really put a lot of effort into community promo with my first book and I really should get back to that. More community focus and less social media B.S. :P

  3. Those are all very viable options for promoting in the real world. Non fiction and history authors really need to approach libraries, because they love those types of books.

    We've of course had great success with sci-fi cons and it's not just our sci-fi titles that sell.

  4. Your suggestion of going to non-book events is a good one. I have sold quite a few books at craft events. There is less competition for the readers' attention when you're the only writer there.

  5. Thanks for sharing your advice. My blog takes a lot of my time and I don't have much time for more social media. Good to know we don't have to do everything.

  6. The only Internet I use is my blog..... no FaceBook , Twitter ect.
    Enjoyed your post Chrys,


  7. It seems like everything is online these days. It's not, really.

  8. Good ideas, Chrys. It sounds like we need to network—whether via social media or in our communities. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  9. I am always searching online for articles that can help me. There is obviously a lot to know about this. I think you made some good points in Features also. Keep working, great job ! Buy Facebook Accounts


Please tell me what you think. I love to chat! :)
