Shining the Book Promotion Spotlight on Contemporary Romance Author Jill Limber

A multi-published author and former RWA President, Jill Limber’s latest books are Montana Morning, A Heart That Dares and The Right Track. As a child, some of Jill’s tales got her in trouble, but now she gets paid for them. Residing in San Diego with her husband and a trio of dogs and one very ancient cat, Jill’s favorite pastime is to gather friends and family for good food, conversation and plenty of laughter.

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

This book was my first contemporary romance. Up until I wrote The Right Track, I had written historicals. The Right Track is set on a private railroad car that I have travelled on many times as the chef, so I didn’t have to do a lot of research. Crossing the U. S. by train is an amazing way to see our beautiful country.

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

Told all my friends and reader via my website and with postcards and emails.

After that, what happened?

I got a lot of nice response and the book sold well.

What did your publisher do to promote your book?

They put a nice low price on it—that helps!

What’s your opinion on blogging? Do you see that it is helping sell your book or is it not making much difference in terms of sales?

It is hard to gage how much promotion of any kind helps sales unless you do a day-by-day analysis, and that is very time consuming. But I love the feeling that I am connecting with readers, so I do love blogging.

I understand using the social networks to promote your books is also an effective marketing tool. Do you find it is or isn’t?

Again, this is hard to quantify, but reaching out to readers is always a really good idea. People can’t buy a book they don’t know about.

Besides blogging and using the social networks to promote your books, what other ways are you promoting your book?

Literacy signings, contests and giveaways.

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?

The release is so new, it’s hard to say.

What are your experiences with offline promotions such as book signings?

I have found you meet some wonderful readers at book signings, but sell very few books, particularly if the book is only available in digital form.

Thank you for this interview, Jill.  We wish you much success!
