Shining the Book Promotion Spotlight on Harriet Cammock

It doesn’t matter how you start, it matters how you finish. This can be said of Harriet Cammock’s life. Born in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Harriet’s journey is one marked by a strong faith in the belief that you can overcome, if you try hard enough.

Through childhood, her grandmother instilled in her a drive to succeed. After an abusive marriage, Harriet determined she would use her own experiences in overcoming abuse to teach other women that there is help available. She channeled those experiences in writing and through her blog, The Grace Chronicles; she provides inspirational and uplifting messages to many people.

Harriet began The Faith Hour in 2009 and used this platform to launch The Renewed By Grace Conference, which was designed to bring together men and women whose lives were touched by abuse. “I want to show women that you don’t have to look like what you went through,” Harriet said. Using creative resources and with involvement from other community organizations, Harriet plans to host another conference sometime in the next several months.

A published author, she now hosts The Harriet Cammock Show. The Harriet Cammock Show uses principles of surviving and overcoming; principles that Harriet learned first-hand. Harriet has appeared on The Word Network and Atlanta Live! and is a guest writer for The Hinterland Gazette. A gifted speaker, Harriet is available for speaking engagements.

Welcome to Book Marketing Buzz, Harriet.  Can we begin by having you tell us a little about your book?

Through The Fire is based on my own experiences in surviving domestic violence.

What is the first thing you did to promote your book once your publisher accepted your manuscript?

We used social media, face book, twitter to promote the book before its release

If you had to pick just one book marketing tool that you’ve used to promote your book, which would you say has been the most effective?

Blog Tour

Do you do more promoting online or offline and which do you prefer?

I do both. I like one-on-one interaction but I do much online as well

Do you use social networks such as Twitter and Facebook to promote your books and have you had any success with it?

Twitter and Face book have enhanced sales tremendously

Do you own a blog and how often do you update it?  Did you set up your blog solely to promote your book and what is its effectiveness?

I began blogging in 2006 prior to publishing Through The Fire. My blog generates interest in my projects

Do you recommend authors getting publicists to help them promote their books?  Do you have one?

Yes in asnwer to both questions

If an author prefers to do it alone rather than hire a publicist, where should they  start?

Social Media, press releases

Thank you for coming, Harriet!  We wish you much success!

You’re welcome! Thanks for having me!
