As many of you know, I am defending my dissertation this Tuesday. On Nov. 30 I will be releasing a new timeline for publishing Joy, Interrupted, with deadlines for contributors, proofreaders, and myself.
I will also be asking help in promoting the book. Right now I am learning how to develop a marketing plan by promoting my book, Insanity: A Love Story.
What I am doing now to promote this project will help us build an audience for our anthology.
Here are some of the things I am doing now and plan on doing for our project on the anthology:
Getting Likes for Fat Daddy's Farm facebook page at http://facebook.com/fatdaddysfarm.org
Getting followers on twitter @fatdaddysfarm
Promoting and fixing up the website at fatdaddysfarm.org
Getting reviews and ratings, on Goodreads, Amazon and blogs, posting them to facebook, tweeting them
Guest hosting on blogs
Exchanging reviews with other authors
Doing Author Q&As on blogs
Promoting our books in posts, tweets and getting others to share these posts and retweet
Posting excerpts on facebook, twitter
Doing a free book promotion (btw, my book, Insanity: A Love Story, is free to download today on Black Friday, as a special thank you)
Promoting books on various sites
There are more things in the works.
If you know of anything else I should be doing, please let me know. Some of these things you can do now, if you do want to help with the promotion of the project, other books we publish, and the press itself--they are all interconnected, so more exposure for one is good for all.
As time goes by, I will explain more about the marketing plan.
Happy Thanksgiving weekend,
I am grateful to have all the contributors to Joy, Interrupted
