MARKETING: TAKING A LOOK AT PINTEREST

 

Carol McAdams Moore
Carol McAdams Moore

A Note from Carol McAdams Moore

Do you remember the saying that a picture is worth a thousand words? Sometimes that is difficult for authors to embrace. We are used to painting pictures with our words. Using an actual picture to communicate an idea makes us stop and reroute our creative process.

If you are an author, or an aspiring author, it is important to take that “reroute” to capture the attention of your readers. Why? Pinterest is a growing avenue of social media. The savvy author will have a well-planned presence on Pinterest.

How to Blog About Your Book without Blogging About Your Book

Jocelyn Green
Jocelyn Green

Greetings from Jocelyn Green! If you’re like me, the idea of blogging about your book in an attempt to earn sales is about as appealing to you as standing on the street corner holding a sign that reads “Buy My Book!” And yet, if done strategically and with finesse, blogging is a great way to prove your credibility as an author, connect with readers, and grow your audience.

NEW RELEASE: MARCH 2015 – SPY OF RICHMOND BY JOCELYN GREEN

 

Spy of Richmond by Jocelyn Green
Spy of Richmond by Jocelyn Green

Spy of Richmond

The Confederate capital in the height of the Civil War: no place for a Union loyalist. But just the place for a spy. Her father a slaveholder, her suitor a Confederate officer, and herself an abolitionist, Sophie Kent must walk a tightrope of deception in her efforts to end slavery. As suspicion in Richmond rises, Sophie’s espionage becomes more and more dangerous. Will her courage carry her through, and what will be lost along the way—her true love, her closes friends, her life?

Tips From the Pros: Jocelyn Green

"Marti

Greetings from Marti Pieper in sunny, steamy Florida! Pour yourself a frosty glass of lemonade or tea and enjoy one of our encore interviews. No, we don’t recycle our blog material. Instead, we have the opportunity to gain from the fresh wisdom and insights of a longtime CAN author who’s appeared here some time ago.

"Jocelyn

Today, I’m delighted to present an interview with Jocelyn Green. Although she and I haven’t

met in person, I feel a unique connection with her. We’re both homeschool moms (well, I was until my youngest graduated this past spring) and have worked on collaborative projects. During the interview process, I discovered we have even more in common than I thought. I know you’ll enjoy learning from Jocelyn. Let’s find out what you have in common with her, too.

Welcome, Jocelyn! Let’s get started. How many books do you have published? What are a few of your latest titles?

Nine so far, with the tenth coming out in March. My most recent were Yankee in Atlanta (June 2014) and The 5 Love Languages Military Edition with Dr. Gary Chapman (September 2013).

Hope and Writing

Aloha from Karen Whiting, CAN treasurer

DSC_5017_3This week I received an email from an editor that surprised me. I met with the editor last March at a conference and submitted some requested manuscripts but heard nothing. Evidently my submission made it into the accepted folder but in changing secretaries the company missed sending me a contract. This week the editor checked for the contract before preparing to put the article into an upcoming issue, found the error, and emailed me. The article is a new twist on something they like to publish and I hope readers enjoy it.

This unexpected Christmas acceptance adds a final touch of blessing from God to end the year.

I love surprises and each acceptance always surprises me in some way.

Faith Deployed . . . Again by Jocelyn Green

FaithDeployedAgain_cover_200
Faith Deployed . . . Again: More Daily Encouragement for Military Wives

By Jocelyn Green

ISBN: 978-0802452511

 

The highly anticipated sequel to award-winning Faith Deployed: Daily Encouragement for Military Wives is here! As husbands are being deployed multiple times, the women left behind desperately need encouragement and strength to maintain the home-front.  Often lonely, frequently overwhelmed by the needs around her, and continually stressed by a unique lifestyle, she needs to be equipped as to how to respond biblically to the daily struggles that threaten to wear her down. Faith Deployed…Again:  More Daily Encouragement for Military Wives is filled with wisdom and insight from over twenty-five Christian wives, representing every branch of the military, and explores how the Bible relates to a variety of topics and issues – including those that arise with post-deployment – encountered in a military marriage.
