AskJohnKremer.com: Book Marketing Questions & Answers
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From now on, I'm not doing free phone calls or answering people's questions for free via email. All such traffic will now be sent to my new website: http://www.AskJohnKremer.com. If you want to ask me a question, that's the place to do it.

Here are the first few posts from my new Q&A website:

Hardcover, Paperback, or Ebook? - http://askjohnkremer.com/hardcover-paperback-or-ebook (note the special tip at the end on how to become a YouTube partner).

Book Fairs: A Listing? - http://askjohnkremer.com/book-fairs-a-listing

Gaining traffic from special days
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Susan Delaney, author of Rx for Quilters, posted a note on Facebook about Peanut Butter Lovers Day (mentioned in the last issue of this ezine). As she noted in an email to me: "I posted the National Days regarding peanut butter, smiles and moho on my Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/profile.php? id=1416421136). I asked for people to send me a smile and their favorite PB use. At the moment there are 60 FB posts in the string."

Now, that's not thousands of eyeballs, but it's more eyeballs and comments than most people get on their Facebook posts. It's just one of the ways to use the special days I feature at the top of every issue of this ezine.
