Christmas Comes Early…With Books

Christmas Comes Early….with BOOKS!

The Overactive Imagination

Christmas tour

Howdy!

So I’m kind of breaking my usual ban against Christmas until Thanksgiving is over. Mainly because of books. 🙂 Today, we’re celebrating the release of not one, not four, but eight new Christmas books! All written by Rebekah A. Morris. I’ll be spotlighting two of her books today and you can find out more about the others as you follow the tour.

My Book Marketing Plan

Anyone in need of marketing strategy? Joynell Schultz tells us how she boosted her book Hidden to a #1 spot on Amazon!

Hidden best seller

And it didn’t take many sales. The day it hit number one, I sold 50 copies.

The key was a good cover, a little bit of the right advertising, and picking the correct categories for the book. Here are a few tidbits:

  1. The right cover: I’ve finally given in. I did make my Hidden Cover, but moving forward, I think I’ll be hiring cover designers. I reached out to one of my favorite designers to work on redoing Blood & Holy Water & making one for book 2 & 3 in this series.
  2. The right advertising: Having a group of authors that help support this project has helped me bring in sales (if you haven’t read my blog about the “Hidden” project, check it out HERE
