Using Facebook Groups to Promote Your Book

Book promotion can involve a significant amount of effort and time, and thus, using the proper tools can be an advantage. If you have recently published a book, you will want to consider utilizing the power of Facebook groups to increase its exposure. When posting in this way, it is important to target the right audience and choose a group that has a large number of members. Furthermore, directing users to a landing page instead of an Amazon link will help maximize sales.

Here are five keys to finding success with Facebook groups:

How a Pantser Learned to Plot

I thought I was a pantser until I tried NaNoWriMo, and I now think there has to be an element of planning in our stories. Here is a suggested happy medium, which I actually think I’m alright with…

A Writer's Path

by Tonya R. Moore

I used to be a pantser.  Time was writing by the seat of my pants was the only way I could imagine getting any writing done.

“What if we had a writing contest where the winner would get a book contract?”

HorrorAddicts.net had contests in the past. In fact, we’d run two writing/podcasting contests, the Wicked Women Writer’s Challenge and the Masters of Macabre Contest. Podcasters like H.E.
