You Are Invited to Share Your Booky Tips

Did you know that subscribers to my SharingwithWriters newsletter can send me tips they want to share with other writers. Tips on the craft of writing. Tips on marketing books. Tips on useful tech. Send them with your name, book title or service you provide and a link and I'll credit them to you. Here's a tip! Those inks help your Google search engine position!

It's easy to subscribe. Just go to http://howtodoitfrugally.com and use the little subscribe window in the upper right corner of every page. And you'll get a free e-copy of Great Little Last-Minute Editing Tips, too. Yay!

Here's an example of a tip from my last newsletter:

Tip:Different books do require different features on their Web sites. And sometimes we choose to ignore the rules for very good reasons. The one feature most authors miss, though, is one the Independent Publishers of America (IBPA) newsletter suggests. That is, "Showing some personality." It's especially easy to forget to let our voices shine through when we're using pre-formatted services like AuthorsDen.com. Revisit your Web site—whatever it is—and see if you can spark up different features, from your biography to your media kit.
