Book Marketing Update: Bill Peterson on Author Promotions

Guest post by Bill Peterson

missions of fire and mercyMissions of Fire and Mercy - Until Death Do Us Part is being marketed by myself through several different social outlets. My website is Within my site, readers can connect to my Facebook, blog and Twitter messages. All interact with each other and I blog at this website several times a week and add chapters and new stories on occasion.

In addition to the above, I am a member of the Military Writers Society of America (MWSA), from whom I have been awarded a Silver Medal in the Memoirs category. I also blog on this website as well.

I am also a member of the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) where I continue to sell books and get great response through word of mouth advertising.

I am a member of several other veteran organizations where I continue to have input in the conversations there through email. I also add excerpts or chapters from my book through my email contacts occasionally. I also sent out emails to all my contacts announcing a book sale for a limited time.

I attend social gatherings such as the Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans. I have been to two of those and plan to attend two or three more this summer.

There are two retail outlets that I frequent where my books are offered for sale.

I have done four speaking engagements to vet organizations and a church group. My plan is to do as many engagements as I can at several area libraries and our local Boy Scout group.

I also am planning to write to three different magazines to feature a chapter from my book.
