Thanks for including my website — #44 on your list — http://www.QueensOfBookMarketing.com. I’ve got several free book marketing articles I wrote that can be accessed from this site. These articles range from optimizing your Amazon presence to utilizing Twitter to promote your book. I hope people will check out the free articles.

Great to hear from you Phyllis. I, and several readers of this blog, am at the stage that you describe where you have or (almost have) a book but have to do your own marketing. I haven’t done much on Twitter, but will take a closer look at it now. ( and I’ll put some stars against #44!)

Allan —

Thanks so much for adding stars at #44.

Where are you in your book process? In the last few days I’ve revised my take on how authors should plan their marketing strategy (hopefully before the book title is written in stone) based on email conversations with self-published authors and with two clients of my company’s book author website services.

If you’d like me to write a guest post for you on my “discovery,” I’d be glad to in order to help other authors.

I SHOULD be getting notification by the end of this week that it is available, then it will start to appear on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Thanks very much for the offer of a guest post on ‘discover,’ that would be absolutely wonderful.

Thank you for mentioning my site. Great list, and great information. I’m tickled to be in such esteemed company. Best of luck to your readers and you.

Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; many of us have created some nice practices and we are looking to swap methods with others, be sure to shoot me an email if interested.
