I had a wonderful time talking with my friend and author, Lizzy Armentrout. I met Lizzy on Twitter in 2009, when her book “A Vengeful Spirit” was first published. Our friendship has grown, and I am thrilled to be able to speak with her for the first time. A delightful and joyful woman, Lizzy’s enjoyment of life shines throughout the podcast.
Lizzy Armentrout is a Christian Murder Mystery author. Lizzy talks about her book, “A Vengeful Spirit”, her sequel and second WIP novel, as well as marketing and promotion. Her first published work, “A Vengeful Spirit” is a young adult mystery, but an excellent read for all ages.
Writers are responsible for a lot of their own publicity. Lizzy shares some of the marketing and publicity she utilized when promoting herself and “A Vengeful Spirit” I was impressed by Lizzys tenacity in promoting her name. Though having a hectic life as a teacher, mother and wife – LIzzy was able to promote herself through the online Social Media, speaking engagements as well as interviews and podcasts.
Before her life “turned upside down” Lizzy spent about an hour/day marketing. This included promoting herself and her book, but also interacting with her readership and fans. She understood the “it’s NOT all about me concept.” Sure she wanted to sell books, but the underlying aspect of a good promotional campaign is getting involved with your readership and engaging with them – to brand yourself.
