March 5, 2015

Julia McCutchen interviews Janey Lee GraceJaney-lee-grace_250
on Thursday 12th March

There are three areas of PR that every successful author, expert and teacher should have some knowledge and experience of. As of today, how would you rate yourself from 1 – 10 as a:

  • Public Speaker?
  • Great interviewee?
  • Go-to expert for print media, radio and TV?

When a journalist calls from a mainstream publication you need to know how to handle that call. When a producer wants to book you for a TV show, you need to feel quietly confident. And when you are asked to do a TED talk, you need to know how best to prepare yourself to shine.

In this interview you will learn:

  • What the media (journalists / producers) are looking for and importantly what they aren’t!
  • What it means for us as authors to “be the brand”.
  • How to establish our USP as authors.
  • How to present ourselves credibly to attract opportunities and then maximize them.
  • How to develop a solid PR and Media Strategy.
  • How to prepare for an event like a TED talk so you can speak with clarity and confidence.

Janey Lee Grace is the author of five books including an Amazon No 1. She is a freelance journalist and a Media Relations expert specializing in helping individuals and experts get clarity on their USP and find the right PR strategy get their message out to a wider audience.  Janey has worked in the media for over 25 years, and is currently a presenter on the UK’s most listened to Radio Station BBC Radio 2. She has also worked as a TV presenter and in production.  Janey incorporates her own experience in getting her own book to become an Amazon number one best seller. For more information see

How Authors Can Benefit From Visiting Book Fairs

April 16, 2012

LondonBookFairHere in the UK, the London Book Fair begins today and continues for the next three days (16th to 18th April).

It is described as a “global marketplace for rights negotiation and the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film and digital channels. With over 400 seminars and events, 1,500 international exhibiting companies and 24,500 publishing professionals, The London Book Fair encompasses the broad spectrum of the publishing industry.”

It is one of the main book fairs which take place each year for professionals in the book trade alongside Book Expo America, the Frankfurt Book Fair and the Bologna Children’s Book Fair. There are also many smaller yet worthwhile book fairs and exhibitions internationally.

Many authors wonder if it is worth attending these trade fairs and many commentators say that it isn’t. My view is that it can be a valuable experience if you approach it with the right mindset. You also need to plan your visit well in advance and wear sensible shoes in the knowledge that you’ll be on your feet for most of the day!

It is important to be realistic when thinking through a book fair visit, especially if you have a vision of meeting agents and editors to present your book to them. Most publishing professionals will have filled their schedule of 30 minute meetings well in advance of the fair taking place.

Having said that, serendipity can, and does, occur at book fairs.


6 Ways to Get Your Book Discovered on Amazon

March 19, 2012

AmazonSearchResultsI am delighted to introduce this guest article from Dana Lynn Smith, The Savvy Book Marketer. Enjoy!

With millions of books listed on Amazon, it can be a challenge to get your book noticed by shoppers on the site. Here are six strategies for helping customers find your book on Amazon.

1. Use Keywords in the Title and Subtitle of Your Book

Many shoppers search for books on Amazon by doing keyword searches, so it’s important to use relevant keywords in the title and/or subtitle of nonfiction books. If you’re publishing in Kindle format, it’s easy to add a subtitle if the book doesn’t already have one.

There’s also a keyword area on the Kindle publishing dashboard where you can input keywords for all types of books. Think about what kind of terms people might use to search for books like yours on Amazon.
