eNovel Authors at Work is a group of indie authors
1) Who believe in paying-it-forward…
2) Our goal is to get our books visible and in the hands of readers….
Our mantra is WRITE. PROMOTE. SELL.
We are dedicated to helping one another understand the challenges facing writers in the digital universe. Everything we discover finds its way into these pages to help authors and readers alike to navigate the universe of indie publishing. Our Author pages are filled with an array of well-written and entertaining books across all genres, from sweet romance to edge-of-your-seat thrillers. We do not promote erotica or gratuitous violence. eNovel authors are scattered about our good earth: USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, France, Greece, Scotland and the United Kingdom, but we all come together right here.
We are all about THE BOOK. We help each other to get our books noticed and expand our audiences. Indie Publishing is constantly changing. We do our best stay informed. Whether an author has published one book or ten, success requires diligence, dedication, and focus. We don’t know all the answers, but we are learning who to ask, who to listen to, and how best to use the tools available to sell BOOKS in today’s market. What worked last year or even last month may need tweaking. We try everything: Blogging, Interviews, Tweet Fests, Rafflecopters, Facebook events, Amazon Giveaways and promoting our titles free and discounted.
Accent on Romance is a newsletter for fans and readers. Published when eNovel has something wonderful to offer you such as free and discounted books, new releases and often: Rafflecopters offering Gift Cards/books and other swag. eHow for authors is posted on our blog pages right here.
I’m Jackie Weger, Founder of eNovel Authors at Work. In June of 2013, I was new. I didn’t know any indie authors. By the end of the year, I formed eNovel Authors at Work, invited indie authors whose books I enjoyed to join me and here we are…networking like fiends with an aggregate of above 300,000 Twitter followers and learning from one another. Every author brings some talent, some knowledge to the table. It works. eNovel does not teach aspiring authors how to create. We get the word out about our books and promotions. We do not trade reviews. We are NOT a review site. Membership page can be found HERE. We have learned to vet promoters. If you see a mention of a promoter on this site, it is approved above or below the fold. Promoters cannot buy a mention on eNovel. Nor can service providers such as editors, cover artists or formatters find their way onto our Useful Links page unless a member has used the service with success.
P.S. I never like to sign off without sharing this: The single loudest lament one hears from new indie authors is a lack of book reviews. Here is how savvy eNovel Authors at Work gathers organic reviews.
We put this gentle plea after THE END in all of our books.
Thank you for taking the time to read [title]. If you enjoyed it, please consider telling your friends or posting a short review. Word of mouth is an author’s best friend and much appreciated. Thank you, [author name].
Yes, it works. In the past three + years readers have kindly posted above 13,060 organic reviews on eNovel Authors at Work titles.
Before you leave our site, do take a few minutes to read an article or two and browse our author pages. If you become a member, these writers could one day be your colleagues. How nice is that? Have questions? Ask them HERE. I’d like to add a little common sense goes a long way. When you email eNovel Authors at Work , tell us your name, and offer a link to your Amazon author page. A query that says: Hey! How do I join? often gets deleted. Sign your name! Otherwise, I may just email right back and ask: Who are you? Or, I might not.
Inviting authors and readers to visit our new and exciting Facebook page, Book Tavern and Fiction Bar to chat with fans and authors, snag free books and swag. Don’t be shy. Say hello and join the conversation. Attention Authors! No hard sells in the Tavern. Do NOT ask for reviews. Join, scroll posts to see how we interact. Invite your fans. Sorry. No erotica. The Book Tavern & Fiction Bar is family friendly.
