  • Gambling and writing by Neil D Ostroff 2/5/2012 10:40:55 AM
    Iím heading off to Atlantic City tomorrow to play blackjack and have some serious fun. Of course, Iím bringing my laptop so I can do a little writing while Iím not gambling. Thereís nothing like looking at the ocean from twenty stories up for a littl... more

  • Creating an image by Neil D Ostroff 2/2/2012 9:35:59 AM
    I happened to pass a mirror the other day when the sun was at its brightest and shining through our living room window like a yellow spotlight. I was not so thrilled with what I saw. Iím 42, I workout daily, I eat properly, and I donít smoke, but sti... more

  • Marketing plus by Neil D Ostroff 1/26/2012 9:24:50 AM
    In my endless quest to market and promote myself so I can sell millions of books and spend my days fishing in the Florida Keys, Iíve discovered yet a few more sites and tips that are free and can do wonders for promotion. The latest cool marketing bi... more

  • Query that worked by Neil D Ostroff 1/18/2012 9:30:30 AM
    Continuing to showcase queries that got agents and publishers interested in my work over the years, when there was a publishing industry willing to take on new writers (ha ha), here is the query that got the head of Random House Childrenís Division (... more

  • Exposure, yes! by Neil D Ostroff 1/16/2012 9:41:58 AM
    Just another example of how the internet has changed authors and the exposure that their books are capable of receiving with a little marketing and promotion. Here is a review and blurb about me that appeared in Italy. I couldnít even read it and had... more

  • Iím strange! by Neil D Ostroff 1/13/2012 8:12:52 AM
    I used to think I was a really strange person. While everyone else was out socializing and going to concerts, movies, and having meals out, I would stay home and sit in my room and write stories. I thought I was even odder when I got older and went t... more

  • Keepiní it real! by Neil D Ostroff 1/9/2012 9:36:13 AM
    As my five dollar blog ads end I can reliably say that they resulted in maybe a dozen sales. Since I only get like thirty-five cents a book the result wasnít worth the expense in monetary terms. But itís all about exposure. This brings me to the next... more

  • Impatient patience pays by Neil D Ostroff 1/7/2012 9:17:48 AM
    Okay, I finally got the dates for my Kindle Nation blitz and itís not for several weeks. They got me in the first spots available so you can see how coveted the campaign is. I have two campaigns going: a daily sponsorship that will feature my book on... more

  • To sell millions! by Neil D Ostroff 1/5/2012 11:51:42 AM
    That is the goal of most novelists. Not so much because of the greed factor, but that money affords the life of being a writer. Indie publishing can make it happen! That said, here are the final results of my relatively expensive blog ad campaign. I ... more

  • Hello, New York! by Neil D Ostroff 1/3/2012 8:18:21 AM
    Since my website and blog pages are getting so much attention Iíve decided to submit SILENT INVASION to try and get an agent, again. Though, as I said before, itís more of an ego thing than anything else. I figure with my sites getting so much traffi... more

  • AhÖ sales! by Neil D Ostroff 12/30/2011 8:35:16 AM

  • Come on readers! by Neil D Ostroff 12/22/2011 12:45:07 PM
    The first ads of my winter campaign are live. The combined cost for both was $100. They will run for the next two weeks right on the home pages of these sites. This should give the ads about 100,000 views at least. http:/... more

  • Starting now! by Neil D Ostroff 12/16/2011 5:28:23 AM
    Itís done! Iíve just put money into promotion. A pretty good chunk, actually. Iím starting with Kindle Nation Daily site. Iíve done some research and heard a lot of positive things about this site and what it can do for your sales. They even have a s... more

  • Going for it!! by Neil D Ostroff 12/13/2011 8:35:28 AM
    My brother sent me an article the other day that inspired me beyond belief. Iíll attach it at the end of this post. Basically, itís the story of a self-published success. I know, I know, Iíve read a thousand of them, also. But this one struck me diff... more

  • Love the interview! by Neil D Ostroff 12/10/2011 8:39:39 AM
    Been doing the interview thing a lot lately and I think itís starting to pay off. Not only does my name come up more often in search engines but Iím noticing visits to my blog and website are increasing. Of course, this could also be the result of my... more

  • Greatest feeling ever! by Neil D Ostroff 11/21/2011 11:41:44 AM
    Got a new book coming out next week and I must say itís a great feeling. Not because I finished another book, but because I finished a book that I started writing in 1997. As I slowly weed through more than two decades of manuscripts, thereís a certa... more
