Promotional Links

Ah, school is out for holiday break. A friend and I treated ourselves to several hours at our favorite salon -- pedicure, manicure, facial.

While I lay in a darkened room, music playing in the background, my skin being hydrated and detoxified by a layered sea weed mask, I let my mind wander away from school and exams to something that has been much on my mind lately: author promotion.

With the release of What Mattered Most mere weeks away, I've been reading a lot on the topic lately. There's also been quite a lot of discussion about author branding and promotion on the author loops I belong to, so I thought this week, I'd share some of the links and resources I've gathered along the way.

Author Branding 101

Author Chey McCray on Promoting Yourself and Your Books

Charlotte Boyett-Compo's page with samples of her brochures and buying forms (helpful if you're putting together press packets)

Below are a few links to sites where authors can advertise (many also have boards -- loops seem to be the most popular form of author promo):







If you have other links to recommend for reading or advertising, please leave them in the comments! Have a great weekend!
