Favorite Newsletter Tip Time

I've begun sharing my favorite tip from each of my Sharing with Writers newsletters right after it is issued . Those  of you who want lots of tips, articles, in-the-news of the publishing world notices, etc. may subscribe by sending a SUBSCRIBE message to HoJoNews@aol.com.  Here is my fave from this week's edition:

Tip: In the Frugal Book Promoter (www.budurl.com/FrugalBkPromo), I show authors how to build contact lists of readers, editors, and others that can help them with their marketing efforts. One of the groups that they often forget to include on those lists are bloggers. Another is editors of e-mail newsletters (meaning people who put together newsletters like this one). That’s grassroots marketing, folks, and it’s an easy way to kick start a campaign and grow your network.

Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of This Is the Place; Harkening: A Collection of Stories Remembered; Tracings, a chapbook of poetry; and how to books for writers including, The Frugal Book Promoter: How To Do What Your Publisher Won't; The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success; and Great Little Last Minute Editing Tips for Writers . The Great First Impression Book Proposal is her newest booklet for writers. She has three FRUGAL books for retailers including A Retailer’s Guide to Frugal In-Store Promotions: How To Increase Profits and Spit in the Eyes of Economic Downturns with Thrifty Events and Sales Techniques. Some of her other blogs are TheNewBookReview.blogspot.com, a blog where authors can recycle their favorite reviews. She also blogs at all things editing, grammar, formatting and more at The Frugal, Smart and Tuned-In Editor .
