Continuing with marketing tips here on Eventispress, three of our authors are giving away short stories and encouraging readers to sign up for their newsletters:
Ian K Pulham’s Radical Action, is a standalone prequel to Ian’s debut novel Ticket to Eden:
Roderick Hart’s Back to the Wall, which includes some of the characters in his recent novel Interleaved Lives:
Author Diana Jackson’s short story is unrelated to her novels but has a quirky title, A Very Yellow Memory and like much of Diana’s work is fiction but has fragments of truth much in the flavour of The Healing Paths of Fife:
As most businesses we at Eventispress have ‘met’ regularly on Zoom during the last couple of years, both as a whole group and in two’s, for particular in depth discussions, guidance and support. These meetings have been vital and energy giving, when the author’s life, especially during this pandemic, has been quite a lonely one.
‘You are the only people in my life I can really talk about writing issues with. My family and friends care, but they just don’t really understand,’ remarked one author.
We are pleased to say that our first ‘face to face’ meeting of our Bedfordshire contingent is taking place shortly. We hope it will help to:
- Re-energize individual authors
- Help to share and explore ideas for marketing
- Discuss best approaches
- Think of ways to be mutually supportive
The list could go on and on. Joining a writer’s group is similar but has a slightly different focus. More about that in another post. All of us at Eventispress have a goal to promote the Eventispress brand, as well as our own books. This is far easier than purely self promotion, where everyone benefits and everyone contributes.
Roderick Hart published his novel ‘Interleaved Lives‘ as an ebook through Troubadour Publishing a year ago.
Rod dearly wanted to publish it as a paperback, because many of his readers have preferred to read his books that way in the past and Blackwell’s stocked it.
We had discussed his project here at Eventispress several times, but decided that it wasn’t the best time to launch a paperback for sales in bookshops, during lockdown especially, and so Rod chose the option with his other publisher, to focus on an e book only at first.
We at Eventispress are pleased that we published Interleaved Lives as a paperback a month ago, initially on Amazon, but aim for it to be more widely available in June.
