How to Market a Book (3rd ed., ebook) by Joanna Penn*
This giveaway is open from midnight to 11:59pm ET on July 3rd.

From the book description on Amazon.com:
How to Market a Book is for authors who want to sell more books, but it's also for those writers who want to think like an entrepreneur and build a long-term income. It's for traditionally published authors who want to take control of their future, and for self-published authors who want to jump-start a career.

There are short-term tactics for those who want to boost immediate sales, but the focus of the book is more about instilling values and marketing principles that will help your long-term career as a writer.
*This giveaway is run by the ShoreIndie Contest. Neither Joanna Penn nor her publisher are in any way affiliated with this contest.

This giveaway is open midnight to 11:59pm ET on July 5th.

From the book description on Amazon.com:

Saturday, July 8 - AskAuthor chat at 7pm ET & 24-hr Fiction Giveaway
Join fantasy author and ShoreIndie Judge Elise Kova and ShoreIndie editor Jeni Chappelle on Twitter's #AskAuthor hashtag for a conversation about Elise's experience as a hybrid author. All are welcome to join the conversation and ask questions!

Elise Kova has always had a profound love of fantastical worlds. Somehow, she managed to focus on the real world long enough to graduate with a Master’s in Business Administration before crawling back under her favorite writing blanket to conceptualize her next magic system. She currently lives in St. Petersburg, Florida, and when she is not writing can be found playing video games, watching anime, or talking with readers on social media. She is the USA Today bestselling author of the independently published Air Awakens Series and Golden Guard Trilogy, as well as the traditionally published Loom Saga.

Elise tweets @EliseKova. Be sure to check out her gorgeous website and Facebook page, follow her Instagram feed, and see what people are saying about her books on Goodreads.

Editor's Note: Elise debuted in 2015 with her YA fantasy Air Awakens, which became a #1 Amazon bestseller in Epic Fantasy as well as YA Sword & Sorcery Fantasy. Since then, she's gone on to self-publish four more books in the Air Awakens series and the three books of the Golden Guard Trilogy (YA fantasy) and has become a hybrid author by publishing the two (so far) books in the Loom Saga (A Steampunk) with Keymaster Press. A former graphic designer, Elise designs her own covers (which we LOVE): she works with an illustrator, who produces a painting, and she adds the text and formatting.

Elise has also generously agreed to let us run a giveaway of THE ALCHEMISTS OF LOOM. This giveaway is open from midnight to 11:59pm ET on July 8th.

Sunday, July 9 - AskAuthor chat at 5pm ET
Join urban fantasy and sci-fi author Scott Burtness and ShoreIndie editor Sione Aeschliman on Twitter's #AskAuthor hashtag for a conversation about Scott's experience as an indie author. All are welcome to join the conversation and ask questions!

Scott Burtness lives in the Midwest with his wonderful wife, Liz. He enjoys reading horror, sci-fi, thrillers, and comedic takes on all three genres. For Scott, reading is a fun escape, a chance to live vicariously through someone else's adventures. He decided to start writing with the hope of entertaining readers like himself.

Connect with Scott: Amazon   BookBub  Twitter   Facebook  Goodreads 

Editor's Note: Scott published his first (hilarious!) book, Wisconsin Vamp, in January 2014 and has experimented with a wide range of marketing strategies in the last three years. He also spearheaded VampireBooks4Blood, an online fundraising event for The American Red Cross and Canadian Blood Services that held in October 2014, 2015, and 2016 and is a ShoreIndie sponsor. Scott's latest book, UNDEAD CHEESEHEAD, was released in March 2017.

Scott has also generously agreed to let us run a giveaway of Wisconsin Vamp. This giveaway is open from midnight to 11:59pm ET on July 9th.
