Marketing Your Novel

Fellow blogger and author Robert Treskillard has a creative method for marketing his latest novel, Merlin’s Blade. He has printed off several hard-bound copies to send out to other published authors he has met in an effort to receive positive endorsements from these authors. He will then use these endorsements to help further market his novel to publishing houses. I really liked the idea. And since the novel is not for sale, it is not considered self-published by other publishers, as they would still have first printing and selling rights.

If you have any creative ideas for marketing your novel, I’d love to hear them.

  1. Getting published is far harder than I had imagined when I first dreamt up my novel four years ago … sometimes we have to pull out the stops!

    I’ll be interested in what others have to say.

    Thanks for the publicity, Steve!

  2. Feathered Quill Book Review was by far the most professional book reviewing site I found. For a small fee they will write a timely review and then you are free to use it anywhere as long as you cite them. I strongly recommend them. Feel free to use my name as a reference.

  3. Thanks for the suggestion, Holly. What’s the link to their Web site?

    You have a nice looking Web site yourself, by the way. Your novel, Crestmont, sounds interesting. I’ve always enjoyed that period of American history.
