Great Tool for Authors: Create Your Own Newsletter EASY!

How would you like a daily push for you as an author in book marketing, book promotion, book publicity and YOU as an expert in your topic and industry? Of course you would — at least if you want to be seriously successful in publishing.

At the recent Judith Briles Book Publishing Unplugged last month, all attendees were introduced andslide-unplugged-2015 encourage to create their own newspaper. With the assistance of Kelly Johnson, my favorite Geek Girl and who will be with the Publishing At Sea cruise this coming January, we walked them through variety of “aha” tools that will soar their authoring success.

Taking them to The Book Shepherd Daily, was illustrated as a fast and easy tool. We used mine as the sample. You want to subscribe here.

BS DailyOnce set up, completing the profile, get key words and identifying up to 25 websites, Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites, everyone was shown that by following key influencers in their genre, industry, or just cool people they wanted to share their words/advice with … and here’s the huge TA DAH … a daily, weekly or monthly newsletter could be curated from their blogs and postings.

Of course, the savvy author makes sure that she or he includes in the big 25, their own blog, Tweets and Facebook posts. This will keep your website “live” meaning that it’s not stagnant, adding new, hot material that is relevant to your field, genre, expertise on a daily basis. Search engines like that.

Our sold out crowd loved it … I think you will too. Don’t forget to subscribe to mine (and let your friends and followers know that it’s all about publishing success and ask them to subscribe as well) AND when yours is ready, let me know. I’ll subscribe back.

Join me next year at Judith Briles Book Publishing Unplugged. The dates are June 25-27, 2016. Here’s to your newsletter and publishing success.
