Summer tips to goose up your publicity during the summer.
1 Seek out publications within your community that have targeted readers … they still publish in print. Think of local business publications, city publications that pop out weekly. Most of these are just run by one or two people and they will jump at the idea of a guest column or an article by you. It saves them time in creating one fresh. And you will discover a new friend. Create a habit and send new ones in often.
2 Be a responder … as in respond and make comments on online articles and blogs.
3 Be a trend spotter … highlight trends where your book, your genre, and your expertise are popping. Create a pitch to media — a writer just may decide to feature you!
