A Night Too Dark: A Kate Shugak Novel (Kate Shugak Novels) - Dana Stabenow's latest release.
Who is Dana Stabenow?
Dana Stabenow is an author of twenty-five novels, 20 short stories and essays, 50 Alaska Traveler columns and multiple feature articles for Alaska magazine, and hundreds of blog posts. She recently spoke at the Oklahoma Writers Federation 2010 Conference and graciously posted her speech on her blog. What an informative, motivational and educational speech!
I've printed it off to highlight, underline and store in my folder I intend to use when my novels hit the world, one day. You'll learn more from this speech than you will from a dozen websites.
But this phrase really caught my eye:
Remember this if you remember nothing else from my speech tonight. It turns out that an active buy link in a newsletter targeted at people who really want to get it is the most effective means of selling your book.
In other words, know who will read your book, target them, and build a relationship with them. You have to adore the people you want to adore you. It's a two-way exchange.
