In case you didn’t already know, I’m co-writing the Marketing for Authors series with fellow indie author Bethany Atazadeh. We’ve both been working so hard on all the books in this series and it’s so exciting because we’re now able to start revealing things to you! For today, the reveal is the cover for the first book in the series: How Your Book Sells Itself. If you want to see the cover, you’re going to have to watch the video!Continue reading
Bethany and I have a huge surprise and we’re so happy to finally share it with you!Continue reading
Book reviews are so important when it comes to making sales for your novels. A stranger isn’t going to buy your book if it doesn’t have a lot of reviews, and this is especially true for self-published authors. We have to work a bit harder to present ourselves and our books to make the sale. But how do you get a lot of reviews for your book? Well, you have to ask! Watch the video to find out more!
Today’s video I’m teaming up with Reedsy to talk about book marketing. What is Reedsy? They’re a company that help authors connect with other professionals in the industry. This includes editors, cover designers and marketers. While I feel I’ve got a pretty good grip on social media marketing, I don’t know a lot about Amazon and a few other technical things. I hired Alaina Waagner through Reedsy to help out with the launch of She’s Not Here, but she also agreed to help me with this collab. Alaina is here to talk about what she does a book marketer, how she works with authors, why its important to market your book and how you can choose a book marketer that is a good fit for you.
Another year at the New England Authors Expo! I had a great time talking to other authors, networking, signing books and speaking on my marketing panel. Be sure to check out some of the awesome authors below!
Coming to you live from the New England Authors Expo! If I didn’t cover something, let me know and I’ll answer your question in future videos!

I created an online course!
A lot of you were asking about the details behind starting an AuthorTube channel and I wanted to create an online course that hasn’t been available to authors before, which is how AuthorTube Academy was created. I’ll be teaching you how to create your channel, upload your first video and create long-lasting relationships with other AuthorTubers. AuthorTube Academy will be available August 14th, but if you subscribe to my newsletter you’ll be emailed a coupon in August.
Today’s video is a little different because I’m taking a deep dive into a tool called Storiad. This is a tool designed for making marketing your book easier.
It’s week two of Camp NaNoWriMo and I’m proud to say I’ve made some really great progress!
As many of you know, Kristen Martin hosted the first ever AuthorTube Retreat at her house!

We could talk about writing, publishing YouTube, anything! The weekend went by way too quickly, and there is a blog to come, but until then behold…BEAN BOOZELED!
