Continuing my series of book promotion ideas leading up to the launch of my new novel, If Love is a Lie, Finding and Losing Love Online, here’s today’s topic: Listing Your Platforms
There are many ways to get the word out, but I never realized how many different ways I could spread that word until I sat down and started to write them out as a list. In many ways, listing your platforms is like listing your blessings.
Here’s my (still growing) list of online platforms I can use to promote my books:
- Facebook personal page
- Facebook Author Page
- Romance Book Facebook pages
- Vampire books Facebook pages
- Jennifer Geoghan Novels Blog (What you’re kindly taking the time to read right now)
- Wells Genealogy Blog (My blog about my genealogy research)
- Amazon Author Page
- Ancestry.com (I’ll be posting more on this later on)
When I looked at that list I realized I have a lot of work to do. I needed to create a posting schedule and I need to keep up to date on all these sites when the book comes out. Honestly, had I not sat down and made this list, I’d probably have just updated Facebook and this blog.
Now I’m trying to SEE THE BIGGER PICTURE.
I need to update and link these pages together to work for me in unison.
This ends my series of Book Promotion Blog Entries, but I’m still very much a work in progress. Like I said when I first started the series, this is the first time I’m trying to take an organized approach to launching my book. I’m very curious to see if I see better sales as a result of my efforts.
So what about you?
I’d love to hear more idea on how to promote your books, and by books I mean Ebooks. Had I a paper version of my books, I’d have more avenues for promotion, but I haven’t gone down that road yet.
Don’t forget, my latest novel will be released on Amazon tomorrow. Check it out if you love a good romantic thriller!
