Podcasting by Authors
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I've just added two wonderful articles on how to create and publish podcasts. One was written by Patrice-Anne Rudledge, author of The Web-Savvy Writer: Book Promotion with a Tech Twist, and the other was written by Penny Sansevieri, editor of The Book Marketing Expert newsletter. I think between the two articles you'll get a good idea of how to go about creating and marketing a podcast to help you sell more books.

You can find them at http://www.bookmarket.com/podcasts.htm

Both authors have given me permission to reproduce their articles on the BookMarket.com website.

Using Teleseminars to Create and Market Books
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You can still listen to this free teleseminar I did on how to create and market books using teleseminars. It will be available to listen to for at least another week or two (until I get back from BookExpo America).

After I return, I will take down the free recording and begin to charge $30.00 for that teleseminar. So listen to it now before you have to pay.

Go here to listen: http://www.instantteleseminar.com/?eventid=88419.

You want to learn how to do teleseminars and use them to create new products, new relationships, and new markets. In this teleseminar, I reveal a secret tip on how to begin creating relationships with top book media and buyers, even months or years before your book comes out. This one tip could boost your book marketing program to levels few authors or publishers have ever enjoyed.
