Hale author promotes books on Squidoo
I believe Hale authors need a web presence to publicise their books.
And like Michael (previous post), I started promoting my latest book, THE CONDOR’S FEATHER last year, immediateley after the manuscript was accepted.
Although this book will not be published until July 2009, it already has its own page on the internet and is already attracting traffic:
Though I have a personal website and an active blog, I have made good use of Squidoo.com whose site allows me to create a dedicated site for each of my Hale book.
Setting up a Squidoo site is simple (open the website and it tells you how to do it in 60 seconds!)
It’s fast. And it’s free!
You can add to it at any time and illustrate your posts with a range of pictures of: people, places, events, reviews – anything associated with the writing of your story.
I have a Squidoo site for each of my previous Hale novels:
Two of the above books sold out within a few weeks of publication but I still maintain the sites to promote the books which were subsequently published in large print (Ulverscroft) format.
Want another string to you promotional bow?
Why not give Squidoo a go?
