thanks for joining me for another week's book review. LaShaunda has a promotion group on Facebook and this is how I learned about her book. As a new author, I wanted to know how I could connect more with other writers and readers. I'm a really shy person and I often find writing to be my way of connecting with those around me and those I want to reach or inspire. In reading her book I found a lot of helpful information. There is a great deal of helpful information in the book but I'll share a few of my favorites with you here:
A schedule is important. Without creating a blogging, writing or networking schedule things can get haywire with or without life getting in the way. One of the benefits of having author or business pages is being able to schedule posts in advance so you aren't on your phone all day. (You can also do this in WordPress. My favorite feature.)
It's equally important to reach out to those who respond to you. Again, not all day but pop into your social media and see what readers are saying or if they are asking questions.
Create blog post/article ideas from themes in your writing. I always wondered what I would write about and my favorite topic is love. It's also the theme of most of my writing but I can make it my own. I also like talking about writing and poetry. It was great that after ever topic LaShaunda incorporated ways to apply the tasks that she had laid out or talked about. In each step not only do you become a better writer but you give readers a reason to come back and you build connections with your target audience.
Create a promotion plan.
It's important to promote for at least three months: before the release, release day and post release. (This is currently scheduled for my new book Life & Love)
These are just a few of my favorite points, there are plenty for everyone. Overall, I enjoyed reading and learning from this book. It is a must have for first time authors and could be applied to new businesses in reaching new clients and growing your target audience. Even if you have been in the publishing industry for awhile and need a new way to approach new readers or expand your audience, this book will be very beneficial.
Peace & Love

With technology's warp speed in creating interactive communication channels for readers, veterans—as well as new authors—must stay attuned to what readers are using and how to make it work for themselves. Hoffman's up-to-date book has done that, taking the author/reader from actual agenda items in their daily plans to lists of accurate lingo useful in online communicating. Budget line items and concerns are also addressed and alternative ways to manage available funds. Her conversational descriptions of different social media tools and her first hand experiences using them opened up some new venues I'm no longer afraid to try.
I'd recommend this book to anyone trying to keep up with the additions to social media as a resource you'll turn to often. For those needing a hands-on workbook to highlight and underline the best parts, this is a good purchase to add to your working library.
It's easy for me to say this has to be the best and most current step-by-step guide for book promotion.
It covers things many of us don't put into practice and breaks them down into bite-sized chunks that are achievable. Setting goals, attracting readings and proper scheduling are problem areas for me. After going through the book several times, it is now easier to wrap my head around why it is critical to create a plan and execute it a little at a time.
I wouldn't say I no longer feel overwhelmed by the thought of promoting my books, but it's certainly more manageable with this great resource I can reach for time after time.
If you're a writer who needs to know where to find your readers and/or how to build relationships with them, plus schedule your promotion wisely, buy yourself a copy of this book. It's an investment you won't regret.
