More online writing

I often look for resources for our authors so they may spread the word about their books. One online source is Freelance writing jobs at

There are plenty of articles to guide the new or even the seasoned writer. If you are an author, you need to get additional exposure and online writing is a great way to do it. I know I harp on this, but it's true. The bonus? Sometimes you'll even get paid for what you write.

Writing articles online

Writers want to gain a following for their books. The first thiing you can do, even if you don't know a lot of people, is to begin writing articles online in a topic that you enjoy.

There are a lot of sites from which to choose so make sure you look around. I chose because they had a category opening that made sense for me, mortgages, which fit with my financial and mortgage background. Once I wrote for them for a while, I applied with Yahoo!
Make sure you do not rely on the article writing site to get readership. Post a link (but don't spam) with a catchy title on Twitter, Facebook or IFogo! Each new reader is a potential sale for your books. Plus, you begin to meet new, interesting people.

We're getting ready to host a great service to writers. The LeRue Review will offer free and/or paid reviews for writer's books. All you need to do is contact LeRue at Enter Review info in the subject line and someone will get back to you with the details. In a nutshell, you will need 2 copies of your book that you're willing to part with; one for the reviewer and one for LeRue to post to the website. Don't forget...listing your book is free.

The review will be sent to our sister company's clients (LRP Printing, which btw, you can also have your book printed and available for on demand or small run printing) and available online at or via e-mail. The initial release will reach over 2,100 customers in print and online.
