You Got Drama? Write a Book!

So you tell everyone you know about the problems, issues and concerns you have about yourself and others. Why not tell the world? Provide solutions for the problems you have already solved and include professional opinions for the things you have yet to resolve.

As African Americans, we often talk often about how "I been through so much I could write a book!" But rarely do we actually sit down and write about it. Don't worry over spelling and grammatical errors -- just write. Don't be concerned about how your voice sounds over a recording, just speak! Find someone who knows how to write a book and tell them what you want to talk about in book form.

Deep inside of all of us there is a book and if we don't tap into it we will never find it. Turn the TV, computer, radio, telephone and whatever else off for awhile, so you can get your thoughts together. Some of us are very spiritual and God has been moving on us for awhile to write what he commands, but we put him off.

If you have found this blog today, let this be a wake up call for the book inside of you to come on out!

God bless!

Book Buzz - 5 Effective Ways to Distribute Promotional Materials
By QB Wells

Book buzz requires people to talk about your book. Authors discover after writing the book, the book has to get into the hands of readers.

A common problem is discovering the most cost efficient strategies to find readers. Marketing online and using press releases can be effective but not easily measured. Street marketing strategies provide low-cost investment, create direct relationships and can garner immediate buzz for your book.

Here are 5 strategies to distribute your marketing materials, promote your brand and create buzz.

1. Postcards - Print postcards with your book cover to give to potential customers. On the opposite side, place the press release, book event, blurbs or other relevant information about the book. Pass the postcards out at a concert, place the cards on the library counter or pass out at a literary reading event.

2. Brochures - Print a three-fold brochure along with a description of your book. Include the contact information to purchase or read an excerpt online. Hang the brochure at grocery stores, doctor / lawyer offices, or anywhere else you know your audience might pass and read.

3. Bookmarks - Create bookmarks with your book cover and the back description. Pass the bookmarks around a poetry reading, literary festivals or network with another publisher to pass your bookmark out as a promotion. Offer the bookmark as a promotion with your book. Readers like free, useful, gifts to use.

4. Business Cards -Pass out business cards whenever you have a book signing or related event. When meeting people, be memorable. Distribute your business cards at a happy hour or networking social. Make it a goal to circulate the cards and follow-up to cultivate a relationship.

5. Books - Get the book sale! The book itself is a marketing tool and should be leveraged to create buzz. Research your market before you design your book. Some people actually do choose a book by the cover and the back copy.

Do not only sell your book! Sell your ideas, personality, brand- you! If people like you, they will purchase your book and become repeat customers. Street marketing establishes a direct relationship for authors to sell and brand their product to generate repeat customers. The creative author will locate high traffic visibility areas and creative outlets to distribute marketing materials.

Get your marketing materials into the hands of readers and in front of their eyes. Exposure is the first step to creating long lasting buzz for your book. Make it your goal to present your product in a professional manner and provide potential customers with all necessary information to make a purchase. You will be happy you did. And if you wrote a good book, people will talk.
