Here’s an excellent To Do List for writers put together by social media guru Chris Brogan. These are a few tidbits I found especially insightful.

  • 3. On the blog, write about interesting things that pertain to the book, but don’t just promote the book over and over again.
  • 4. Start an email newsletter. It’s amazing how much MORE responsive email lists are than any other online medium.
  • 6. Consider recording a video trailer for your book. [House on Black Lake has done an excellent job of this.]

The few differences I’d have are mostly technical. I like GoDaddy for domains and Host Gator for extremely fast WordPress hosting.
