Okay. Those of you who have been following my blog for any length of time know I’m a self-proclaimed marketing disaster. I love to write, LOVE to write, but this whole telling (or gently suggesting) someone go out and buy my books is completely out of my comfort zone. That’s a big reason Ubooks were created. No one has to buy anything.  But I digress…

The point here is that I’m not very good at marketing or social media in general and in order to get word out about my books I need to be. So I finally did it. I hired a marketing director. It’s a big step for me in many ways. It takes this whole writing/publishing thing to the next level. The real level. She’s giving me weekly assignments and the first one has to do with this blog. Apparently I’m not posting nearly enough. So, starting next week I will be posting three times a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. One of those days I will be releasing that week’s Ubook chapter, on one I will be writing something personal, and on the other I will be featuring a movie/book/blog/music review. With that in mind, if you’d like me to feature your book/blog/etc. leave something for me in the comments and I’ll set that up.  


Here are this weeks Ubooks:

  1. Wow, that's a big step! Hope it pays off.
    Funny, some experts say post often and some say once a week. I'll stick to my once a week.

  2. Three times a week? That's killer. I remember how busy it was and how there's no way I could do it now. I hope you have a blast with it.

  3. Three works if you can come up with good content. I barely manage a couple times a month now.

  4. That's definitely a big step!
    I've tried to blog three days a week in the past but it's hard to come up with that many ideas every single week. I'm not so strict on myself anymore.

  5. I'm so excited because I post on M, W, and F and a pro advised you to do that!!! I read something years ago that said you don't have to post every day, but be consistent, so that's what I've always followed. I'm here to help you whenever you need to promote something, so just let me know! I ran out of ideas recently and realized I'd stopped thinking of ideas and was just relying on old stuff. Once I started pushing my brain, the ideas started flowing.

  6. I stink at marketing as well. This was one of the main reasons I didn't try to publish any of my books (being with an agent for almost 3 years was another, but that's another piece of the story). Finally decided to take the leap and publish my debut this year, but I'm so afraid that I'll hinder my book's possibilities by not being market savvy enough, not having enough connections/networking. I wish you so much luck! Good marketing is still a mystery to me, but I hope you conquer it :).
