The Writer’s Double Burden: Marketing

Posted by Julie on August 16, 2013 in About Me, Christians Read, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, Writing |

It’s my week to stop by Christians Read and share my thoughts. This week I talked about marketing. The average reader probably doesn’t think about all an author needs to do to not just create a book, but persuade people it is worth buying.

check_it_outI also talked about my practice run into marketing.

I’d love for you to stop by, read, and leave a comment. While there, read the other posts, too. My favorite authors are there: Hannah Alexander, Elizabeth Goddard, Sarah Goebel, Kristen Heitzmann,Vicki Hinze, Maureen Lang, Yvonne Lehman, Kathi Macias, Tara Randel, James L. Rubart, and Lynette Sowell.

You can find my latest post here.

This week I’m sharing about reputation. Do you ever think about yours? Do you think it matches up with reality?

Take a look.

But God Had Other Plans

Posted by Julie on September 15, 2011 in About Me, Christians Read, encouragement, God's Word, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, surrender, Writing |

If you love reading you’re going to be as excited as I am. It was mere weeks ago when author Vicki Hinze had an idea. You can tell when God is behind it when the doors of favor swing wide open. She wondered if there was such a thing as a blog where writers share thoughts about reading, writing, quotes and inspirational thoughts. Her original plan was to join a pre-existing blog.

But God had other plans.

It didn’t take long before Vicki knew she was meant to start a blog with the intentions she was looking for. Authors of all levels came forward expressing their interest to join them.

I was one of them.

Soon the blog had an URL, Facebook page and Twitter account. Authors completed the paperwork. Vicki created a schedule.

Today is launch day for the new blog Christians Read.




Elizabeth Goddard is the first Christians Read blogger. Other authors include Lynette Sowell, Vicki, Hannah Alexander, Maureen Lang, Yvonne Ortega, Yvonne Lehman, Kathi Macias, Camy Tang, and Sarah Goebel. Weekend posts will be from authors sharing more on the writing craft.

My first post will be Wednesday, September 21.

Join us, won’t you?
