    Awesome post! Growing an audience is not just publishing content that your readers will love, but also consciously reaching out to them in hopes of building a sustainable relationship with them. The first point you mentioned pretty much nails it.

    Very helpful! I would love to learn more about the process you went through with each post, as that is where I am having trouble. Aside from the obvious (FB and Twitter) where do you post next?
    This is extremely helpful - thanks for sharing!

    Hi Adam, this is a FANTASTIC post that left me in awe. I do hope you're going to consider a book for sale that you expand upon the content as it is one of the best I've read in a long time!

    Hi Adam. This isn't a post, it's a college semester on blogging. LOL. Hey, folks, if you are struggling with blogging, GO HERE! I use many of these tactics - many of which I learned right here at triber - but I see there are many more that I can implement. Thanks!

    All the best,
    Leslie

    One thing that bloggers need to understand is this: haters gonna hate. People will love and send positive vibes to their blogs. Others will just hate because they're lives are boring and need to entertain themselves by putting others down. As you've shared in the post, it's all about managing the problem straight on and not let your emotions get the best of you.

    Should Authors Give Their Books Away?

    I sent out four paper copies of PATRIOT'S PRIDE on Saturday to readers who were picked for a Goodreads Giveaway. I'm hoping I'll get four reviews, but I know I'll be......

    Pauline: I have thought of putting one book out for free simply to entice readers to try my writing. This is a tough business!

    I have gateway freebies to two series and they are a mixed bag for getting reviews that's for sure. On one hand, free gets people to try you, or try a new genre. But...if they end up getting a book in a genre they don't like or whatever, then yeah, not great reviews. lol But I still like growing my reviews somewhat organically, letting them just happen. I do ask for reviews (nicely) at the end of my books. And I can't dispute the sales numbers that started happening after I did some perma-free books. Not a fan of giving away my hard work, but I am also a reader and trying an author before I invest is something I personally like. Shrug.

    I'm open to freebies to help promote a book and getting the word out, but only digital freebies in certain formats. Paperbacks get expensive as a self-publisher, especially when there's no guarantee of a review. Great post.

    Good point, Melissa! I always read them and asked the boys what words sounds like and they came up with real and made up ones. And I believe that helped them read quickly.

    The real brilliance of Dr. Seuss is that his books are the perfect book for struggling readers, not because of easy text. We know that's not true about his books (zeffer, gnook) but because of the flow and fluidity of the words. They allow people of all ages to practice for fluency (even adults). If you are wanting to practice speaking in front of a group, or before a big audition, Dr. Seuss is perfect!
