Attention New Writers – Authors Supporting Authors
Do you have your first book written but you don’t know where to go from here? Don’t have any idea of how to get your book in front of “new eyes” to read your book? Maybe you haven’t started your book but thinking ahead to this, when the time comes.
Well, I’m going to help you out in this area. I have a much easier time promoting other authors than I do my own work. I’m not really sure why that is but it is much easier for me. But in turn by sharing with the attitude of “Authors Supporting Authors,” I do receive my own reward for doing this in many forms of compensation.
I get to meet many new people from all over the world. I get to work with new authors while inspiring and motivating them to actually take that step towards their writing careers. Sometimes I am actually the one they call on to do the formatting and publishing for their first book.
This is a great honor for me. Every book I’ve helped to publish, felt a bit like “my baby” too.
So with this in mind, I would like to try an experiment to see if we can expand on the idea of “Authors Supporting Authors.”
Some of you may or may not already have a blog or a website started or maybe you are using your Facebook Fan Page to keep your readers updated. It really doesn’t matter which platform you are using. The idea is to start getting a steady flow of visitors to your work and the best way that I know how to do that is through commenting.
Yes, I said “Commenting.” Many believe this is old school and for some, it may be, but if you are a new author or writer, it is a “Free” way to start getting traffic and of course my contribution to the experiment will be at “no charge” to the authors or writers.
I have been learning quite a lot from blogger Ryan Biddulph who is the creator of “Blogging From Paradise.” He is an avid believer in blog commenting which also creates engagement, interaction and finally talking with the people who visit your blog. Once Ryan realized what needed to be done, he’s done it and is able to travel all around the world. So he had a perfect name for his blog: Blogging From Paradise.
I’ve read quite a few of Ryan’s books already, so I don’t have a problem with recommending this one to you before I have listened to it all the way through. I’m trying a 30-day trial of Audible Audiobooks from Amazon and listening to Ryan’s book: How to Build an Online Empire Through Blog Commenting
Ryan has authored over 125 books of his own but there is always a common denominator to every book he writes and that is blogging and commenting and relationship building. Buy a couple or more of Ryan’s books and you’ll see what I mean. Ryan Biddulph’s Amazon Author Page.
We have used a rotator on another platform you may be familiar with, called Power Affiliate Club and it has worked out quite well for over three years.
So what I’m going to do is to set up a rotator to add writers and author’s blogs, websites, Facebook pages or wherever you call home online. The rotator I will be setting up will be specific to writers, authors and bloggers. Now let me explain; as we all know bloggers write but in “our world” we want those type of bloggers and we want to gain the attention of more bloggers who also write books, articles, short stories, etc.
I will be screening the sites that want to participate in the “Author’s Commenting Rotator” because even though they are highly popular types of books, I am not going to allow any kind of genres such as erotica, pornography, satanism or extreme violence. If there are other genres along these lines that I’ve forgotten to mention, please let me know.
The genres that will be accepted are: Science fiction – Satire – Drama – Action and Adventure – Romance – Mystery – Horror – Self help – Health – Guides – Travel – Children’s – Religion, Spirituality & New Age – Science – History – Math – Anthology – Poetry – Encyclopedias – Dictionaries – Comics – Art – Cookbooks – Diaries – Journals – Prayer books – Series – Trilogy – Biographies – Autobiographies – Fantasy.
In order for the rotator to work properly and benefit each of us, each time someone leaves you a comment and shares your blog, you are to reciprocate and leave a comment on their blog and share for them too.
Now, I realize this will probably take a little while to build up but I believe it will be well worth the effort each one of us put into it.
Enter your Name and best email in the form below, along with the URL of your blog. I will notify you when your blog is entered into the rotator, so you can start doing your part of engaging and commenting on other author blogs and increase your traffic to your book or future book.
I am really looking forward to seeing the Author’s Commenting Rotator grow and make a difference in every author’s blog who participates.
Be sure to tell other writers and authors about what we are creating here so they can join us and develop a huge following for each writer and author who wants to jump-start their writing careers.
