One day it is my intention to own a coffee shop that also promotes Indie Authors. With Ebooks it is not quite as simple as with print copies but I do have a few ideas up my sleeve.
Welcome to the second year of Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore which now has over 160 authors and around 550 books on the shelves.
How to get into the bookstore
The first step is to have an individual promotion for your latest book which will also feature your other books and some examples of reviews. Please read the following post with the information that I need to do your book justice.
Promotions for books in the bookstore.
After that your featured book and three of your other titles will be displayed in the bookstore with your main selling link (usually your Amazon author page) and your website or blog. Please note that it would be difficult to keep the shelves maintained if all an author’s books were displayed. So authors with more than four will have a note attached to their entry asking readers to head over to Amazon or the website to see all books.
Once you are an author in the bookstore you can take advantage of the new 2017 series which is Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore Update – again Please take a look at the post below to see what I need from you.
Book reading and Interview
Author Book Reading and Interview.
Now that I have a few of my own projects done and dusted… I can focus on the next promotion for the bookstore.
If this was a real cafe and bookstore I would set up regular book readings and interviews with the authors on the shelves.. But they is no reason why we cannot do that here.. The only thing missing of course is the customers who would be listening to the reading and asking questions of the author.
But I have that covered.
Here is how it works…
The author will answer four of my questions that I send to them out of twenty… They will also select a short extract from their book to share in the post. They will then also choose their favourite review for the book that we can add.
I will then do the introduction, the book blurb, about the author and the book links.
Then I will ask those who read the interview to add their questions to the comments section of the post for the author to answer.
This way we do manage to get some interaction, a wide range of questions and a chance to meet the author is a slightly different way.
First and foremost — authors who would like to be interviewed have to be already on the shelves of the bookstore (don’t worry if you are not.. there is a way to get there).
Also the authors must be willing and able to be around on the day or next day of the interview (Saturday and Sunday) to answer the questions.
I already have several authors lined up and if you are interested in joining the list then please contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you … firstname.lastname@example.org
N.B.. Much as I would like to it is impossible to keep up to date with all new releases, offers and great reviews.. and new covers of your exisiting books.. It would help me promote your work more effectively if you could drop me a line when you have news.. I can then include in the twice weekly update. thanks Sally
