WordPress – Great for Kindle Marketing

wordpress websites for writersI got into building WordPress sites more than five years ago, and since that time have created dozens and dozens. WordPress is outstanding for authors because 1) it’s free; 2) it has thousands of great plugins (free); and thousands of beautiful themes (free). I wrote my book, WordPress Websites, because so many people kept asking me how to do things like add images to a sidebar or change a header, that I decided to round up all those questions and put it in my book.

The book is just as valuable today as when I wrote and revised it (2014), and in fact it’s been translated into Spanish. If you already have a WP sites, pick up the book to learn some of the backend tricks. But what you won’t find in the book is how to use WordPress for book marketing . . . which takes me to . . .

Recently, I had the pleasure of taking a Udemy course from Dennis J. Smith called Kindle: Maximum eBook Profits With WordPress Marketing. It’s an excellent course on book marketing, and how authors can sell more books by utilizing their WordPress websites. Dennis’ course sells for $499 but because he knows I help so many writers who are just getting started – and who don’t have that kind of cash on hand – he gave me a code for readers of this blog to get the course for seven bucks. Yes. $7.

I found the following in an old journal, written during a trip to Fort Robinson, Nebraska. It reminded me of why I love writing. Just a few words – but ones that captured my thoughts and feelings.

milky way in Nebraska

The birds are always singing. As I gaze out at the bluffs, I can imagine how this rolling pine hill country must have looked a century ago. Today, Elms line Officer’s Row, but in the time of Crazy Horse it was Cottonwoods that provided the cool shade. Now, the leaves seem to have a reflective surface, catching the look of the wind. Not far down the road is the Old Red Cloud Agency where I wanted to walk to see a sky that was blacker than black.

I lost myself in the streaming band of the Milky Way, starting far in the south, flowing through Sagittarius then flinging itself across the broad expanse of the sky as if a stargazer waved her hand and magic poured from her fingertips. Staying in place, perfectly, since the night she placed it there. Like the Indians who once walked this ground, I found myself creating my own constellations and legends – as would anyone who had access to this sky. This perfect sky on this perfect night.
