Marketing, Book Trailers and Author Etiquette in a Nutshell

Barbara Vey -- November 20th, 2012

Morning all!  Some days you just want to shout in the morning and make sure everyone is as awake as you are.

As many of you know, Sheila Clover English (CEO, Circle of Seven Productions) and I wrote a book several months ago.  We both do a lot of workshops and panels, so we took all the questions we were asked and answered them in fun, little book, Marketing, Book Trailers and Author Etiquette in a Nutshell.  It’s for new and used not so new authors.

Sheila, being the Über talented person she is, had a book trailer made for us.  May I present the video for Marketing, Book Trailers and Author Etiquette in a Nutshell.

This has certainly been a year of new experiences for me.  I even have an author’s page on Amazon.  It all would have tickled my mom.  But I really think Sheila should have used me as an actress in the video.  Then I could have joined SAG (Screen Actor’s Guild) and got a page on IMDB (Internet Movie Data Base).  Hey, a girl’s gotta dream.

ADDED BONUS!  Just leave a comment, “I’d like your book” and I’ll pick one winner to receive a free ebook in the format of your choice.

Bottom Line:  I’m now working on my follow up book, How to Keep a Clean House While Traveling and Doing a Bunch of Other Stuff.  Just kidding…I hate doing housework.

    I would love your book, Barb. I’m assuming it’s as witty and awesome as you are. And I have a thought for your follow up book – in a few more years, you can borrow my kids to clean your house. They’ll get out of my hair so I can write, learn responsibility and you’ll get a clean house. Perfect solution! I’m sure they’ll agree.

    Hope to see bunches of my author friends posting comments and taking advantage of this opportunity and yours and Sheila ‘s excellent advice. Nice trailer, Sheila!

    Hey Barbara! If it helps, I have a picture of you and I on my IMDB profile! :-) lol
    It’s been so fun and such a learning experience working and now promoting a book with you! Thank you so much!
    I’d offer to help with that new “housekeeping” book idea, but, well…I got nothing. You should see my cluttered desk! LOL

    Congrats Barbara! And great trailer. I remember chatting with you about this and it’s so cool to see it come together.

    No need to enter me in the giveaway. I went to take a look on Amazon and darn that 1-click button!

      Levent, you really need to get our book and read the part on etiquette. Your comment is SPAM. If you don’t know why, please do buy the marketing book and help yourself.

    Oh, I’d love a book, if you are still giving one away! Advice from Barbara Vey for authors? You bet! And I also bet Sheila’s advice is top notch too. Can’t wait to read it. I know what will be in my stocking this year. :)
