Many of you have asked about being an influencer for my books. Here are some ways YOU can influence the success of these books. I’m convinced that word of mouth is what sells novels, so I’m excited about your chatter!
Some creative ideas:
Post a review on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Shelfari.com, Goodreads.com, Epinions.com, Libarything.com, and/or CBD.com.
Post your thoughts about the book on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter feed. Offer a giveaway to your online community. (If you need a book for a giveaway contact email@example.com)
Make influencing into a cool, giving game. Give the book to someone who’d like it, then say, “If you like it, would you be willing to buy another copy to pass onto a friend?” If your friend doesn’t like it, he/she can return the book to you and you can lend/give it again.
Start a book-sharing revolution. Register your book at www.bookcrossing.com. And then leave it somewhere! Bookcrossing will track its adventures.
Recommend the book to your local book club. I’m available to do a LIVE video chat with your group. Find out the information here: http://us148.siteground.us/~triciag6/videochats.html
Ask your local bookstore or library to stock the book.
Donate your book to a local prison ministry or women’s shelter.
Share the book trailer. You can watch my trailers and videos: http://us148.siteground.us/~triciag6/media.html
Give your book to a person of influence (pastor, ministry leader, counselor, radio host).
Thank you for your willingness reading my books and, being instrumental in its ministry success.
I appreciate you!
P.S. For a complete listing of all my books go to: us148.siteground.us/~triciag6 … I have over 30 books in print now!

Here’s another idea (and one I just did). I “pinned” a few of your book titles on Pinterest under my “Books I’d Like to Read” (when this grueling semester is over) category.
