More Sites

Instagram, Tumblr, StumbleUpon, LinkedIn, Amazon, Google+, and Periscope (the newest one out now) are a few other social networking sites.

Goodreads Has Readers

Goodreads is the world's largest site for readers and book recommendations. The site allows you to connect with other readers and see what they're reading. If you haven't already created an author page, you should do so soon. You can upload your book(s) to the system, add trailers and links, and even make use of the new Q&A feature that allows readers to interact with authors. You can also join one of the groups -- a quick search can turn up the group you're interested in...preferably, your books genre. You can also add your fiction to the appropriate Listopia lists, or one of the many other lists dealing with genre and all it's sub-genres. Here is my page on Goodreads... http://www.goodreads.com/JeaneSashi

Stick A Pin In It

Stick A Pin In It One of the newer players in the social media space, Pinterest has fast become a powerhouse. Drive by visual content - including images and video - Pinterest is a great place for authors to post favorite book covers (including your own), posters or screen captures from favorite movies, photos related to your research, or even share quotes. (Well, quotes that have been typed onto an image.) You can create boards - these are defined by the categories for the images you upload. For example, you might start a board for "Research" and one for "Actors Who Should Play My Characters" and one for "Beautiful Locations Where My Books Are Set." This is a chance to build a relationship with your audience through visual content. What kind of images best represent your brand? What kind of images will engage your target reader? What images will build a bridge between you and that reader? Here is my Pinterest Board... http://www.pinterest.com/jeaneebennett

Tweet Your Heart Out

While Twitter is, by and large, a terrible way to make direct sales, it is a wonderful way to make new friends and build relationships with your books. Start by following people who are interested int he kinds of books you write: other writers, book bloggers, book reviewers, librarians, editors,journalists, etc. What's the deal with these pound symbols? On Twitter (and some other social media), the hashtag (#) is used to denote a particular topic or thread. If you click on a hashtag, then Twitter will call up a whole stream of Tweets that include that same hashtag. As such, when you include a particular hashtag, then your Tweet will be entered into that same stream - and you could potentially pop up on the radar of a lot of strangers who may be hearing of you for the first time. As an author, your target Twitter users might be using one of these: #Historical #HistFic #Paranormal #RomanceWriter #Romance #Romantic #Suspense #Autobiography #Western #WomensFiction You get the picture. A way to build your circle on Twitter is to be part of #Follow#Friday of #FF - where you share the Twitter handles of other writers, readers, and fans of your genre. If you're running a book promotion, it might be handy to include a couple of these in your Tweet: #99c #99cents #BookGiveaway #Free #Freebie #FreeBook #FreeDownload #FreebieFriday #KindleBargan Again, you get the picture. Here is my Twitter Page... http://www.twitter.com/JeaneEBennett

Will This Get You On The New York Times Best Sellers List?

Now comes the tough question: Will all this work on social media put you on the NYT best sellers list or the USA Today best sellers list? Probably not, but then it really depends on what your goal is. How do you define success in social media marketing? The answer depends largely on how many people you're able to reach. Decide what your goal is as an author, and make it realistic. Much of your goal will depend on how well know you are. Maybe the NYT best sellers list is out of reach for you, but perhaps getting your book to sell better than a 20,000 Amazon ranking consistently is doable. The problem is that there usually isn't a one-to-one correlation when it comes to social media and book sales. Of course, there are always exceptions to this rule. Even ifyou do all the thins mentioned in my post, you can't guarantee a certain number of sales from your hard work. But you can set goals for numbers of books sold, number of people reached, number of fans on your page, and numbers of times a particular post was shared. In this way,you can build your small successes into bigger successes. I hope the material I shared with you will be of some help to you in the marketing of your book. :) http://www.facebook.com/JeaneSashi

Keep A Blog

Blogs are a great way for you to chat with your readership and give them plenty of great content that will get them to keep coming back for more. You can link your blogs to many different social media outlets, including Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. When you link Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ to your blog and you post something on your blog, a message with the link to your blog post appears in your social media feed. Blog sites include Blogger, Goodreads, and Livejournal. What you post in your blog is really up to you. If your book is a time period story, you can write about the tine period when your book takes place. If your book is a paranormal, talking about the supernatural creatures and the history behind them is great fodder. You can post excerpts from your novel, serialize your novel and post it one chunk at a time (assuming you have the rights to do so), post brand-new material, talk about the creative process and how you wrote the book, and write about other things your readers might find interesting. Can't think up something to say? Ask your writer friends on the social media outlets if they would be "guest authors." Chances are they would be delighted to do so and may ask you for a guest post in return. You can also team up with other authors for one blog. This way, you can share the workload, and share the marketing value. You can take turns blogging about their fiction, their research, and anything else of interest to their target readers. Here is my blog... http://toyourfuturesuccess.blogspot.com

Podcast Your Books

One medium that is often ignored by authors are audiobooks. You can podcast your books by posting your audio on Libsyn.com or similar podcast hosting websites. Once your book is up on Libsyn, it can be published on iTunes and other podcasting websites. The disadvantage is that podcasting takes a steep learning curve. If you're not gifted with a pleasant voice, or if you're uncomfortable reading your book, you may find that podcasting isn't for you, or you may decide to pay someone to podcast your book. Voice talent can get expensive, so it may not an option for those who have to watch their expenditures. Here is my Blog Talk Radio Podcast. It is also on iTunes... http://www.blogtalkradio.com/jeane

Make Videos

Make Videos Another way to connect with readers is through videos. They can be as simple as videos you create with a webcam on your computer, to videos you take readers along with you. You can also use the free Google Hangouts service to connect with your Facebook fans live. You can answer questions, share news, and even give readers a chance to a guest star! Here is video I created for my books that is posted to my YouTube Channel... https://youtu.be/6zMyedRIYf8

How To Get Other Authors To Promote You

If other authors whose works are similar to yours or at least in the same genre or subgenre are posting interesting things on social media, there's no reason to not like and share their posts, as well. Not only will they think of you favorably, but they're more likely to repost your posts. Guest authors on blogs, interviews of other authors, and book reviews are surefire ways of finding readership, especially if the author has written something that is in the same genre and enjoys the same readership you'd like to attract. Post a good review or an interesting interview and have that author's name attached, and chances are that author will tell his or her readership to read your blog. Those readers who mosey on over to your blog may check out other posts and note what you've written. You may find that you've gained some fans just by being a thoughtful and generous promoter.

Be Interesting And Interactive

One of the great thins about social media is that you get to chat with your potential fans. Watch and see what your friends and fans are saying on the social media of your choice. Make comments. Post something funny that is relevant (or not) to your book. Keep the spam low, but if you do have a new release, a special book sale, or something worth mentioning, such as an award, do tell your fans. They'll want to know, because you've built up a rapport that enables you to market to them. Many would be glad to hear about your upcoming book and where they may be able to purchase it. A warning though Once you post about it, don't continue to repost the same thing. You can subtly remind them with a photo of the latest cover on your fan page's cover or profile page.

Press Kits for Authors

Hey Dolls and Gents, When you are contacting Bloggers, Radio Shows, Reviewers, and other members of the Media, do you have a Press Kit put together? That Press Kit can in the form of a folder or a PDF file, depending on how you are disseminating your information. Here is a checklist of what should be in your folder or on your online PDF: Author Bios • Short • Medium • Long Suggested Interview Questions Q&A Article Feature Article Author Photo Contact Info Endorsements One-Sheet Announcement Book Cover Image Book Excerpt Don't go blindly contacting those outlets with having your information readily available. Hope this was useful for you. :)

Conversation

   "You do not understand me. You do not take me seriously. You only pay attention to me when you want something.  That is when you caress me and hold me tight.  That’s not good and I don’t like that feeling.  Do not get me wrong, I love being held and caressed, but not just for your own capital gain.”

    “You confuse me to no end. I do not know where you are half of the time.  You seem to get lost quite a bit.   You never let me do what I want to do. You haven't always been there for me. Where were you when I wanted to go on that vacation? But I do appreciate you. As life goes on, I am really going to need your help. I do hope we can become closer as time goes on, and I do mean closer.”

“Hey, look, I know I can be difficult sometimes, which can be all the time. It is not easy to understand how I operate, but you should try to understand me.  Do not worry though I will be here for you. If you keep making smart decisions and working hard. Just don't mention the vacation again, trust me, I wanted to go too. I could use a good vacation.”

    “You were so kind to me.  You were always there; always easy.  Always available no matter what.  I could go to you any time to the day or night and you would never let me down.  I would smile just holding on to you.”

“I am easy to get but even harder to keep.  I have slipped through the fingers of many.  Not tooting my own horn, but I am good.  I have even given some special people the chills.  They have actually broken out in a cold sweat.  That’s just how good I am.”

    “For years you stood patiently by me. You waited for me to pay attention.  You waited for me to see you for you.  Not for what you could do for me.  I have my eyes wide shut.”  

“You’re not paying attention is what has lead you to this.  Lead you to this confusion of trying to figure out what you are going to do.  Of trying to figure out which way to turn or which action to take.  Confusion can be a tricky thing, you know?”

    “You waited for me to notice.  Why couldn’t I see the real you?  Why did I have to ignore you the way I did?  Why did I have to listen to others and do what I wanted to do?  I was hard-headed.”

“I waited for you for a very long time.  I watched you every day.  I shook my head in disbelief.  I could not believe some of the things you were doing to me and with me.  You had no conscience at all.  I felt you just did not care about anyone but yourself.  You did not care about your future.”

    “And I didn't notice you back. You are so right I did not care about my future.  I would cry at night sometimes wondering what was next for me.  Uncertainty can really be a buzz killer.  Sometimes I would wake up in a cold sweat wondering what tomorrow would bring.”

“You were consumed in your own world.  You put everything else ahead of me.  Your priorities were so messed up.  I did not think you would ever come around and see the light.  I may not always be right, but I will say this, I am right the majority of the time.”

    “I took you for granted.  I just knew that you would always be there and be available to me no matter what and no matter where.  I could come to you at any given time and you would be there.  Boy was I so wrong.  That was a wake-up call for me.”

“I guess you thought I was going to be there forever.  Yes, you were more than wrong.  Nothing or no one stays where they feel they are being used and abused.  After a while they will leave.  Some will leave and never come back; some may come back with provisions; and some may come back with complete forgiveness in their heart.”

    “I gave you away. I tossed you out like you had no feelings.  Like I didn’t even need you.  Like I knew you would come back.  No regard”.

“And all you have now is emptiness because everything you have is gone.  How does that feel?  Easy come; easy go.  Not a good feeling is it?”

    “I thought your only value was in exchange for bigger stuff. Possessions.  Baubles.  Things that I wanted knowing that I did not need them.  Just wanting to be wanting.  You provided those things for me.  I caressed and made love to those things and forgot all about you.  Tossed you to the side.  Thinking you would be there when and if I need you.”

“See where your thoughts will get you when you act without thinking?  They will get you all by your damn lonesome self.  Your negative and irrational thoughts will have you up crying at night wondering why and how.  Awful.”

    “Better house. Big enough to house five people comfortably, with enough unnecessary things in it to furnish a village in Africa.”

“And it is a nice house.   Some people would kill to have a house like this and appreciate it while doing the killing.  But not you.  There was no appreciation, you just wanted more.”

    “Better car. I just had to have a car that matched the house.  Who does that?  Oh wait.  Selfish people do that.  People who show-off do that.  For some reason they feel as though they have something to prove to people by showing off.  That is so wrong.”

“Which you bought to go with the house and it was not necessary.  I tried to tell you to keep the one you had that was paid off.  Nothing was wrong with it.  It served its purpose and was ok.  You chose not to listen to me.”

    “Better crap to put inside the bigger house.  I know I just mentioned that but I had to say it again.  Now, I am finally hearing and listening to myself talk.  I didn’t need all of that stuff.  I should be ashamed of myself.”

“You had to make an appearance to keep up with everyone else.  As they say, “Keeping up with the Joneses.”  That will only make you go broke trying to keep up with other people.  You never know their circumstances.  You only know yours.”

    “Materialistic consumerist bullshit.  Yes, I said it.  I see it now.  My eyes are open now and I can see clearly.”

“Material possessions are what get people into trouble with me. They place material over what they are and should be doing.”

    “I was just starting to figure this out.”

“You have it all figured out do you?  Tell me how you figured it out.”

    “But you had already had enough. You had left me.  I just figured you were never coming back.”

“Enough is enough.  The time had come to make you open up your eyes.”

    “You walked out.  You left me.  I don’t even know where you went.  I had no answers.”

“Easy come; easy go.  Life is funny that way.  When you do someone wrong, that someone does not stick around.”

    “And I totally understand why.”

“I do hope that you really do understand now.  It was not my intention.”

    “All along you were just a mirror. You were showing me myself. And I refused to look.  I didn’t want to see.  I thought I might not like what I saw.”

“That is most often the case.  Some people don’t like to turn a mirror around on themselves.  They hate to see the truth and rather place blame on others.”

    “I ignored you.  I forgot about you.  Forgot you were there.  I paid no attention to your worth.”

“That’s nothing new.  It happens all the time.”

    “I didn't value you.  That wasn’t good.”

“Who does?”

    “I used you.  I made you feel bad and unwanted.”  

“That’s an understatement.”

    “And I gave you away.  Balled you up; passed you around and walked away.”

“Like yesterday’s trash you did.”

    “And when you were gone for good, I was just left to look at myself.  To really examine myself and see who I really was.”

“Sometimes we have to learn some lessons the hard way.  That is what hurts us the most.  We learn when the truth is revealed.”

    “What I had done not only hurt you but I did hurt myself.  Look at me now.”

“Don’t feel like you’re the only one.  Many of people have done the same thing you have done.”

    “And all for what?”

“Maybe to cure some form of loneliness.  To try to make themselves happy.  Maybe to fill a void.  Or even to try to keep up with others.”

    “I realized everything that I had done to you - I had done to myself.  That’s not a good feeling.  I don’t like hurting like this.  This helpless feeling is not good at all.”

“That is most often the case.  Once I go away, the other person tends to feel a sense of hopelessness and abandonment.  That is never my intention, but it does happen.”

    “Every time I ignored you - I had also ignored me. I ignored what was real.  I ignored what need to be done.  I ignored the necessities.  I ignored real life for the fantasy.”

“You ignored your priorities.  Some people have their priorities so backwards that it is a shame and a wonder as to how they even get by.  Then they wonder why things go in and out of their lives.  Astounding.”

    “I had ignored my soul. My inner voice kept telling me that the things I was doing were wrong but I chose not to listen.  I wanted to live in the moment.  I know we’re not promised tomorrow and that’s what kept playing in my head.  I didn’t think about the future.  Our future.”

“You do come first, but unfortunately you put other things before you and the things you truly need.  Tell me something, did you need all those things?  Did you need all those people?  Did you pay the price?”

    “My desires, and what I mean by my desires is, I desired to go back to have a thriving business but I chose to only work my business when I felt like I wanted to work my business.  That’s not the way a business should be run.”

“The key word, “desires.”  They are not necessities.  They are just that, desires; wants; dreams.”

    “My dreams were ignored and look at where my business is now.  It’s falling apart and I’m trying my damnedest to hold it together.  I’m hoping to turn things around.”

“We all have dreams we want to fulfill but without putting any effort into our dreams, our dreams become a nightmare.”

    “You taught me that. You taught me a lot of things that I chose not to take notes on.  I see now that I chose not to do a lot of things.”  

“I actually taught you something?  That’s amazing.  I did not see that coming.”

    “You taught me what it means to value myself. I placed a lot of value on things and people that I had no valuation.  I am important as well.”

“You are an important person, and you deserve to be valued.  I have been trying to do that from day one.  You kept pushing me away like I did not even matter.”

    “My time was wasted with people and things that were not necessary.  With people and things that didn’t even care about me.”

“Your time is important and should be utilized wisely.  That is where time management comes in to play.  You did not exercise any of that.  You wasted valuable time that we could have been utilizing to our advantage.”

    “What I do in this world does not depend on others.  I get it now.”

“All that you do in this world depends on you.  You make things happen for you.  If you wait on others, you may be waiting a very long time.”

    “You taught me that my relationship with you is far greater than the stuff you can buy.  I do value you and appreciate you.”

“Is it really?  How so?  Explain that to me.”

    “It's about self-acceptance. You tried to teach me to accept myself for me not for what others saw in me.  I looked to others for validation.  My self-esteem was low and I sought acceptance in any form that I would have me.”

“Acceptance of who or what?  I accepted you just the way you were.  Nothing more and nothing less.”

    “It's about worthiness.  I didn’t feel that I was worthy unless I was surrounded by those things and people.”

“Who are you worthy of?  Me?  Be worthy of yourself.  You are the one who matters.”

    “It's about creating freedom. Security.  That is what I was not creating.”

“There are the key words.  Everyone wants freedom and security.  But you had too much freedom with the security.  The security of knowing I was going to be there.  That I would never leave you.”

    “It's about being my own hero. I should be wearing the “S” on my back.”

“You are the one you should be looking up to.  Not these entertainers.  What do they do for you?  Nothing.  They can cost you thousands of dollars, of which you do not have.”

    “As I have forgiven myself…it seems like you've forgiven me too.”

“Oh, I do forgive you.  We all make mistakes and we all learn from our mistakes in one way shape or form.”

    “You're back.  Or were you here all along?”

“I never left you.  I just had to make you see for yourself the importance of it all.”

    “And I'm so glad.  Now, I feel like I can breathe a sigh of relief.”

“So am I.  Now, we can begin to work this out together.  It is about staying together and building on what we have.  Not leaving one another.  Not hurting one another.”

    “Money you are so awesome and understanding.  I see I would lose my mind with doing you wrong and pushing you out of my life.”

“No, I’m just the dollar bills in your dwindling bank account.  Those bills that we have to rebuild and make you whole again.  Do it in the right way.”

    “I love you.”

“And I love you more.  Now give me a hug.”

    She was a real beauty. She was going to start off by playing hard to get. No matter how you caressed her; no matter how much you loved on her; in the end she was still not going to give you that ass.  You begged, you pleaded, and you even promised her the world...that ass you still would not get.  She made it hard for you to conquer the task that you set out to do with her.   You knew she was going to be temperamental, but yet you still tried.  She admired your persistence.  She wanted to see how much you really wanted her; if you wanted her enough to work for her.  The question was, "How hard were you willing to work to get her?"

    As she came to you willingly, you were lucky she allowed you to began to undress her.  With each layer you peeled back is when you slowly began to reveal each luscious and vivacious curve...one curve right after the other.  Smooth, soft, and silky.  Glistening under the rays of the morning sun.  Once she was fully undressed, you stepped back, looked at her and smiled.  You brought her to the point where she began to purr just by rubbing the front of her.  At that moment you leaned in close and you told her in a hush tone what you thought of her, in the most warm, glowing, and seductive of detail. You then told her what you had planned for her for the rest of the day while you whispered softly in her ear, “Shall we begin?”  As you patted her on her backside.

    That pat warmed her and as she responded vigorously with that purr you so love to hear...as you responded the same way.  Her purr soon became a deep, throaty, harsh growl and you were suddenly aware that she was issuing you a challenge.  A challenge you were not afraid to take.  A challenge you knew you could handle.  As you maintained control with the thought of winning that challenge, you increased the momentum of your task at hand, and you brought it...even harder than she thought you would, giving her all that she wanted.  All that you thought she could handle and then some. You coaxed her, and pushed her harder, and you later demanded more and more from her.  You wanted everything she had.  You stretched her to her limits.  You took her to new heights and beyond like never before. You did this again and over again.  She did not realize that issuing you a challenge was something that you loved.  Challenges are your speciality.

     Without looking at you, she tested your limits.  She wanted to see how much you could really handle...how fast and how hard you could really go.  She wanted to see if you really had it in you.  She was now playing your game.  You had already shown her something, but she wanted more.  She wanted all that you had...all that you offered.  She wanted to know what all the hype was about.  She wanted you to back up all your talk and really give chase to the challenge.  She relaxed and gave you all of her.  She let you see exactly who she was.  At that point she was not only undressed but, she was completely naked to you...fully exposed.

     With the sun barring down and glistening on both of you, you sensed now was the time to give her all to you.  You sensed the time was right to fully expose yourself and really give chase to the challenge. You wanted her to see that she had now met her match.  You were not going to let her win.  You were not going to let her off that easy.  You were going to make it as hard for her as she was making it for you.  Your intentions were to make her lose her breath.  To make sure she did not have the inkling to issue any more challenges.  That this challenge would be her last and final challenge issued to you.

    You both loved how you handled each other.  How you caressed each other.  How you took such care and precision with one another.  How you gave each other what you both had in you.  Neither one of you wanted to stop.  The thrill was too good.  The heat of the moment was getting hotter.  You both thought, "Now, this is what life is all about.  Why don't more people take the chance and dare to take challenges?"  At that point you didn't care about the answer to that question, you were too focused on the challenge at hand.  Neither one of you could see anything or anyone else.  You were too blinded by all the luscious curves that were before you.  She was blinded by the way you handled her.  She could not believe you knew exactly how to handle a specimen such as she.  
     
     As day turned into night and the temperature began to cool down, and when you both thought she could not take any more, she broke through to a new level that even she did not know she had. She thrusted herself even harder towards you.  With each challenge she gave you, you met her challenge with even one better.  When you were both raw and completely spent, she gave you that look from the corner of her eye and smiled softly, seemingly to herself. Once again she began to purr...just a little bit more; all just for you.

    And suddenly you realized that you had just been...Vanquished by a Bronze Beauty Bugatti.
