I'm finally back for a new Monday Marketing post. This one might be a little controversial as I'm going to be discussing whether or not new authors should be offering their books for free! 🙂 I do love me a little controvesy.
Are you ready for another Monday Marketing post? Good, because here it is! 🙂 Today I want to discuss that insidious habit we all have of comparing ourselves to others, specifically in regards to Marketing.
It's Monday Marketing time and today I thought I would do something different and discuss what NOT to do in Marketing.
For today's Monday Marketing blog, I want to discuss using locations in your writing as a way of being creative in your marketing! 🙂 Is it shocking that I actually enjoy writing these Marketing posts? When I first started it was to help solidify my own marketing ideas as well as help others, as I know so many writers either hate marketing, don't know where to start or just try and avoid it. I wanted to show that there are lots of ways to market your book and they can actually be fun. So, depending on the type of stories you write, you may have opened yourself up to some interesting and creative options for marketing.

So here is the article, enjoy this Monday Marketing post 😀
Hello, writers and readers! While I can claim a fair amount of useless knowledge, useful writerly things, such as branding and marketing, are far outside my ken.
Thank goodness for others, like fellow blogger Ari Meghlen, who understand these mysteries, and are willing to share their knowledge! Ari has graciously agreed to visit today, and share 10 marketing tips. Enjoy!
Firstly, I want to say a big thank you to Anne for having me on her blog, The Naptime Author. I appreciate being given the chance to share my thoughts with all her lovely readers. Now, let’s get to it!
Marketing is one of those words that most writers dread. We aren’t really into tooting our own horns. Our comfort lies in building worlds, spinning tales, breathing life into characters…so this “marketing” malarkey doesn’t sit well with us.
