If you are just starting out with your first book, it can be difficult to get people to notice you. You don’t have a huge mailing list, you don’t have a huge social media following, so how are you going to let people know about your new awesome book?
Here’s an idea. Write a guest blog post!
If you search around in the niche of your book, you will find that there are already communities formed around various topics. Many of the web hosts are happy to have guest bloggers because, let’s face it…writing fresh new content is time consuming! But if you offer to write a guest blog post, then they get great content and you get access to their audience. It’s a win win!
I reached out to the Visionary Fiction Alliance about a month ago inquiring about possibly being a guest blogger, and I’m glad I did! They were happy to schedule me for an upcoming slot for August 1st. They have been very kind and helpful along the way.
