Author support

The world of publishing can be daunting, but there are so many people out there who are happy to share advice and support authors. This page is dedicated to them. If you would like your blog or bookclub mentioned here, drop me a message to liz@chantree.com to let me know how you can help writers.

#creativebizhour

I run a networking hour every Monday on Twitter called #creativebizhour Anyone can join in, just add the hashtag to your tweets and replies to join in with the chat. It’s a great place to promote books and blogs as well as other creative industries, as it trends in the top three most weeks and has over 17.3 million views in 1 hour.

Tweets with pictures of book covers or products get the most RT’s. This is a mutual support networking event. The idea is that is you RT others using the #, then they may RT your book or blog details to their followers. Everyone there is chatty, inspiring and very welcoming. They love to meet new creatives and will support you if you support them.

Each week someone wins a week of tweets about their book, blog or business from the hosts with followers of over 50K. Winners are usually those who support others during the hour.

Author Interviews by E. Rachel Hardcastle.

Author E. Rachel Hardcastle offers a free author service of an interview on her blog free of charge and each author can submit up to 8 interviews of 10 questions. This is free and is circulated across her social media. She also invites indie writers to apply for my podcast which is also free – the interviews are 30 minutes long and are again circulated.

Book Snippets blog.

Why another website about books?

Well, they want to help Indie Authors reach the readers of their genre faster.

How, you ask?

By sharing snippets of their books.

Yes, you can read those on Facebook, or in the Authors’ newsletters, or even on Amazon. However, this page is the one place to visit if you want to read one (or more) snippets from books you’ve heard so much about.

And as the snippets are all in one place – here – the readers can browse through them as and when they are ready to buy a new book to read.

So if you are looking to promote your next book, you’ve come to the right place!
