When you look at these new books by bestselling author Traci Sanders, I am sure you are thinking what I’m thinking!
These are the resources I’ve been looking for!
I can’t wait to read and study these tips!
I am so pleased to welcome Traci Sanders as we showcase her newly launched books. Whether you have always dreamed of writing a book, or if you are passionately writing your opus, or if you are ready to launch and promote your new book…Traci Sanders is here to guide you.
Let’s take a look at her books. Then read on because Traci has also provided us with a super Tip to inspire you!
By nature, many authors are recluses—avoiding phone conversations, retail lines (we shop online), and “dealing with people,” in general. Aside from our fictional people, of course. We like them.
However, this lifestyle kills our book sales. ATMs and drive-thru windows don’t read or buy books! People do. Therefore, we have to get out and find these people.
This is another out-of-the-box marketing tip. It’s really easy to do and won’t cost a lot. In fact, if you already have a printer and paper, it will be free, other than the auto fuel it takes you to drive around town. The kicker? It involves going out there … with them.
Here are the instructions:
When you stop by the bank, throw one in the teller’s bin with your deposit.
When you stop by the salon, stick a few inside the first page of the top magazines. (And when those post cards fall out, so will YOUR card.)
When you stop by the utility office, leave one with the clerk, if it’s allowed.
When you go shop for new shoes or clothes, leave one in a pair of popular shoes.
The options are endless. Instead of handing out business cards or teaser cards, and possibly losing a great deal of money, just leave these. They are small enough to fit into the person’s pocket or purse, or be thrown away if the person chooses. But if the writing is compelling enough, you just might get an anonymous sale, or review! You’re a writer, so make it good.
Here’s an example:
I curl up in a ball under the covers and breathe in what little of him remains on his pillow. Behind my tear-soaked eyes lurks a memory of our last day together when he was alive. It had started out as the perfect day.

Of course, keep up with the normal paths—Amazon, your website and/or blog, social media sites, etc., but try something that will make a statement and stand apart in the receiver’s mind.
I know if I found something like this, I would think, Now that’s pretty creative. And I would check it out.
