Book Promotion Tips by Ruby Dominguez

Book Promotion Tips by Ruby Dominguez

From the first day of conception of idea, I started promoting my would-be published book. I talked about it unceasingly to anybody who was willing to listen and showed off my book cover ideas, my way of feeling ahead of time the kind of reception I could expect from my readers.

Prior to publication, I up loaded a home-made 1 minute book video trailer on Youtube, Metcafe, facebook, yahoo, aol, live video, crackle, etc. to generate a buzz.

I also printed and mailed two-side 100 postcards openly displaying the bookcover for the USPS mail service personnel to talk about while at work.

Today, I am doing a two month bulls-eye Halloween promo focusing and bringing my story to its origin which is in Salem, Massachusetts.

Other marketing avenues that I am currently doing are:

1) A Virtual Book Tour and blog radio interviews under the very hands-on and capable Dorothy Thompson of .

2) Email blasting though I feel is a scam I tried, too.

3) I am involved with horror, Halloween events and festivals across the US via sponsorships/advertising opportunities.

4) I tweet at about my book. I tweet on New York Times, ABC, Timelife, CNN, Breaking News, etc. They've got millions upon millions of followers! I just plug it in right with them!

6) I post my book on Craigslist under books for sale or the local news category everyday!

7) I’ve posted my book also at and Voice Village in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, MA and San Francisco.
