100 sites for fiction writers: #65 - The Savvy Book Marketer

This is an ongoing series looking at websites that can be of help to fiction writers with their craft and career.

The Savvy Book Marketer

Online sites that try to sell you something are nothing new. So much so, online viewers are often turned off by such. But every now and then there is a site trying to sell you something but is worth your while to pay attention. I don't normally like to promote such sites, but what author isn't selling something? And sometimes these sites can be worth your while.

The Savvy Book Marketer is such a site. Yes, Dana Lynn Smith, the author in charge of this site, would likely be thrilled if you bought some of her guides about marketing books and e-books. But where her site differs from many others is she actually offers tons of free advice right there on her site.

For example, the site contains plenty of free articles about Marketing Tips for getting out the word on your books and e-books. There is also a section about Ebook Publishing, especially good for writers just making the switch over to digital.

The Aspiring Authors section has plenty of advice to offer beginners, and there are Resources to help authors sell more books and e-books.

It seems every time I turn around there is a writer talking to me about trying to find new ways to promote their work, which is the main reason I suggest others peruse The Savvy Book Marketer site. As I've said, this website offers plenty of free tips and advice, and if you should decide to go deeper into the subject, there is material for sale.

If you don't have a clue as how to market your books and e-books, this site is well worth your while to study.
