I've just realized that over the last year I've done a huge number of articles on book and blog promotion. I've decided to put them all together in one place so that you all have a convenient reference point that you can bookmark.
I've said it before, but I'll say it again. Whatever type of writing you're involved with (blogging, articles, short stories, novels) it is absolutely imperative that you develop a huge network of people dedicated to mutual promotion. You know I'm telling the truth, because I'm not promising you overnight success. This is a "chip away" mentality that will bring you results over the long haul.
Below are a list of articles with a brief description of their usefulness. I hope they are helpful to you!
Notes for Contributors: I have several blogs in which I allow other people to upload content. However, there are some basic guidelines that I like my contributors to follow. They are established in this article.
