How to Market Your Novel

Bookmark and Share
thumbnail-2.aspxThese days it’s up to most authors to market their books themselves. This can be a time-consuming job that steals time away from writing. Every now and then I try to provide examples of ways authors can market their novels and still have time to do what they love—write. Here is an idea that will make your marketing job a little easier. Hold reading events at places like book clubs, bookstores, Open Mikes, special interest groups and libraries.

Here’s an example from my personal efforts. The American Association of University Women contacted me and offered me the opportunity to participate on an author panel. I’ve never done an author panel before but hey, it’s an opportunity to market my novels. They will even allow me to bring books to sell. I’m willing to try something new because it will get my name out to a group of people who might just like to checkout my mysteries.
