Monday Coffee Klatch ~ Self Marketing for Writers



Well, good morning all! Hoping that all of you are safe, do not have any more fires, downed power lines/trees, or storms to contend with. As for us it's day-to-day and maybe hour-to-hour. Our last storm (yesterday) sort of blew up out of nowhere. So, eveyone be vigilant, watch the sky, and stay aware. I do know that a few of you have had power outages, so my heart goes out to you. I know what it is like to have to live in a motel for a few days while it's being restored.


I usually talk about nothing important on my Monday post. But today I think I've found something worth while.


I was over at my Writer's Digest page today, noting that a few new people joined my Vampire Writer's page http://community.writersdigest.com/group/vampireliterature there. I like to welcome new people over to the dark side, make them feel comfy and welcomed so they might want to leave a comment, or a pint of blood by the door as they leave *snicker*.


I also like to see what is up with them on their pages. See what groups they belong to and what they are interested in writing (besides vampire stuff). So, I found a page http://community.writersdigest.com/group/mosquitomarketingforauthors?xg_source=activity about a woman who put this book out for us authors who need to know something about getting our marketing going. It's called "Mosquito Marketing for Authors" I love the title. I remember the title "Gorrilla Marketing" that someone had out years ago, not exactly geared toward writers, and here, someone came up with a book directed to writers and I say it's about time!


I've got the direct link to Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Mosquito-Marketing-Authors-self-published-consistent/dp/1453605304 if you would like to check it out. I'm going to peek at a few pages there, and decide if it's something worth $12.95. It's in paperback form, so that's good! I don't buy on line and I can go to the local bookstore and order it.


Eveyone have a good Monday. I'm back to work tomorrow. Au revoir!

  1. I probably need that more than anyone, but once I read it I fear I would come to the realization that I no longer possess that energy.

  2. Well, you know, the mosquitos do get nasty this time of year anyway.

Customer Reviews... Good, Bad, and Best!

I always cringe when I see a new review has come up on my books. I'm never sure what they will say. Sometimes I am pleasantly surprised,...
