The past weeks in this series, we’ve talked about Smart Publishing People, Great Writing and Publishing Communities, and How to Stay on Top of Publishing Changes. So this week I’m directing you to fantastic resources for Genre Marketing Advice Blogs.

If you’re an indie author working on your book marketing, you may looking for blogs in a specific genre of writing. Check out some of these ideas – all of them are fantastic. And keep in mind that you can learn from each blog, so don’t always feel like you need to stick with just your genre. All the genre fiction folks are super smart marketing people, too.

28)    Sisters in Crime: Great organization, I’ve spoken here as well (at their conference). Lots of great info on writing, and publishing. And, as I mentioned, don’t forget about their conference which is fantastic. http://www.sistersincrime.org/
29)    International Thriller Writers: A collection of thriller writers from across the globe. http://thrillerwriters.org/
30)    Marketing for Romance Writers: As I said earlier, it doesn’t have to be in your genre for it to apply. They have so much good info on book promotion that it’s worth checking out regardless of what you write. I’m also amazed at what I learn from this great blog site: http://mfrw.blogspot.com/
31)    Romance Writers of America: The first time I went to one of their conferences I was a speaker and I was shocked at how much information was shared in sessions at these events. In fact, I’d go to this conference even if I wasn’t speaking there (and I have!). The romance peeps are known to be super savvy and many of the bigger publishing trends start in the romance genre. You can sign up as a member and also get access to their classes and fabulous magazine. https://www.rwa.org/
