Welcome back to another Monday Marketing post. If you are new to my blog, I (mostly) post Marketing articles on Mondays. You can check out previous ones in my Marketing Section.
This post has been churning in my head for a while. I’ve had a number of writers tell me openly that they want to go traditionally published so they “don’t have to do marketing”.
There are many good reasons to go the traditionally published route, unfortunately, this is not one of them. Gone are the days when a traditionally published author would get to sit back and let the publishing house sort all the 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! 🙂
I’m back with another post in my mini Social Media Series. Today’s topic is Facebook and as always, I’ll start with my disclaimer that I am admitting I’m no expert (like at ALL).
This article is more about what I’ve learned about being on Facebook. Things that have helped or hindered me. Hopefully, some of this will be useful to you guys too.
Welcome back, people! It’s Monday and for those of you who follow this blog regularly, you know that means it’s Monday Marketing time!
Today I want to discuss the importance of taking the time to create a marketing timeline for yourself.
A quick reminder that all my marketing posts can be found in my Tutorial List so easy access 🙂
Yes, I have finally managed to get myself organised and my newsletter set-up is now launched! You will probably see a few banners around and the odd pop-up.
So, who am I not to jump on the bandwagon and give you something free (whether you want it or not)!
When you sign-up for my newsletter you will get a free downloadable copy of The Mini Plotter Workbook that I made.
I will try and keep them full of different and interesting things and they will most likely include random collections of:
Also, please share your thoughts on what you want to see in these newsletters. I want your input people, so start…you know…inputting.
(Also, do let me know if anything doesn’t work such as links/graphics/if you don’t get the freebie email! Seriously people, I need to know!)
You want more? Sheesh!
Okay well, all you awesome people on my mailing list will be given first notification of any contests, giveaways and promotions I run.
You’ll also get access to The Library on this blog where I will be adding extra content including exclusive free downloadables as I create them. See! More free stuff.
Brownie points for anyone who got that quote ref without having to Google it.
I will be sending my newsletter out once a month, last Tuesday of the Month. Trust me I don’t think I could manage any more than that!
On the odd occasion, there may be an extra one or two emails that appear sporadically but that will really only be if I have some big announcement or I’m running a giveaway.
Oh and don’t worry, I don’t do spam because well… I’m a vegetarian. :p
I hope you are!

Don’t worry, whether you sign up for my newsletter or not I will still continue to crank out new content on this blog every week. Except this week, because I really needed a break 🙂
Thanks for all your patience this week, regular scheduling will resume on Monday.
Happy writing & have a great weekend
We are mid-way through the working week! Time for a guest post. This week’s guest is the lovely Nicolette Stephens who is talking to us about self-publishing. So whether you are heading for the Self-Publishing path or you’re still unsure, check out the advice below.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you most likely know that I post marketing articles on a Monday. And if you don’t, you do now 🙂
One of the reasons I started to write marketing posts was because I saw so many writers who just froze at the very mention of marketing. I get it, marketing is awful. Especially for us creative. But it is necessary.
Marketing shouldn’t be this huge scary task that overshadows everything. It is small steps you can take that build up. Now one way to get over the overwhelm of marketing is through collaboration, which is today’s topic 🙂
Today’s Monday Marketing post is all about sharing a little something with your readers to help create connections and build that all-important fan base.
