Social Media to Sell More Books

Many authors think that social media is the best way to sell your book. It can be, but you have to put some strategies in place before you start.
This month’s meeting of the Midwest Independent Publishers Association features a panel of seasoned social media experts, coming to share how they have developed a plan and the hook to make social media work for them.

Our panelists:

Karen Melvin is one of the Twin Cities best-known architecture photographers and has co-authored four books, including Boathouses of Lake Minnetonka. Her work has appeared in Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Mpls. St. Paul Magazine, and Woman’s Day. www.karenmelvin.com

Mike Faricy is the award winning author of mystery suspense thrillers woven together with a rich strain of humor and romance. He lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota and Dublin, Ireland. With sixty crime novels to his name, Mike says he makes a very nice living promoting his books on social media. www.mikefaricybooks.com

Dr. Suzzanne Kelley is an author, and the publisher for North Dakota State University Press, where she also teaches classes for the Certificate in Publishing. She has been working in  the publishing field for for eighteen years, first with scholarly journals and then with literary and scholarly book publications. She has shepherded more than one hundred books through the publication process, many of them winning state, regional, and national prizes. www.ndsupress.org
