You can market a poetry, memoir, or novel with short “articles" when you submit to top article directories and blogs.
Like an article, take your book setting and write a informational article about the real town. On book themes, write another piece that could be an advice article. Or, for each book character, write a vignitte on her, showing conflict with another character. Conflicts include conflict with man, others, with self, with nature, with technology or with fate. Your readers love conflict in your fiction or story because it shows action. And it's the action in your stories that keep your readers hooked and turning pages.
Finally, give each piece a new introduction and conclusion. Then, in your signature file or resource box, “Excerpted from “Title of your Book. " offer another free sample at your website to magnetize your target market.
One client wrote a memoir on growing up during 1930's and 40's. His title “When Candy Bars Were a Nickel" share outrageous boy adventures including pictures and letters to make it more real. Another client marketed her book, The Naked Desk, with how to articles and tips, but also shared many stories with characters in a bind.
Remember the who, what, where, when, why and how of your fiction book's stories. Create any one of these into a short piece that resembles an article. Articles spread the word online about your book. When people read these on article directories like ezinearticles.com or in blogs, they will head for your site to find out more about your characters or other offerings.
