In this issue, learn about connecting to local libraries, promoting a book series, podcasting and upcoming literary projects.
The week has been a slight shift in the temperature here in South Carolina. Not much, I’m still wearing sandals and summer clothes. I do love the Fall especially when the tree leaves start to change…just a bit slow to change in the South. How’s the weather where you are?
I’m trying something different this week. I’m only sharing three links and I wanted to let you know about some upcoming Fall projects that may interest you.
If you missed an edition of Weekend Reading, you can view the archives at any time. I appreciate the feedback!

Making the Most of Your Local Library… and Beyond!
I’m heading to the August Library in Georgia this weekend for a workshop and again in October. If you have you been seeking ways to connect with local libraries this article provides great ideas.
Have you written a book series? When launching a new book in a series, have you ever wondered if you should focus marketing efforts on that one book? Find out if you can increase sales by actively marketing the previous books in the series too.
How to Provide Value Beyond the Book with Podcasting (+ Free Bonus Content)
Podcasting can be a great way to build an audience. Audio is easy to listen to on the go whether during travel, at work, or in a gym. It’s not too hard to create an audio recording. Have you thought about recording an excerpt from your book? Read about 7 ways to record audio.
COMING FALL 2016!
I wanted to let you know I have a few projects launching this Fall.
1) TLE LIBRARY – I have been working the past few months on a FREE membership section of The Literary Entrepreneur. In a few weeks, I will share how you can join for FREE to access the downloads and resources.
2) UPCOMING COURSE – In the past few months I have discovered a few people who are really interested in learning how to maintain their own website. I’m a WordPress gal and a former web developer! I will be launching “Creating an Author Website with WordPress” in a few weeks.
I will teach how to install WordPress, choosing a theme (free or paid), setting up pages, setting up the blog, recommended plugins and even lessons on using Canva.com for branding your website.
If you’re interested in more information, let me know.
3) BOOK COVER DESIGN – You may or may not know, I design book covers. I will be launching Pre-Made Books soon at TywebbinCreations.com. If you’re interested in more information or even if you need a custom book cover, feel free to email me.
Have a blessed weekend!
