Default marketing books/ebooks

I self-published a couple of books through Lulu, and I also have a small blog. If it's relevant, the blog is on Weebly.

Other than my current method of posting a link to the books, isn't there an easier method that looks and works better?
I've seen blogs that have images of book covers, but I need a method that leads to the publisher, not to sell the books on my own.

Thanks for advice!!

I am not sure what you are asking.

Do you want to forward your books directly to Lulu?

Or are you looking for ways to market the books?

Hi LBD,

I was looking for some examples, but couldn't find any.
If you have a blog, and have written a book or ebook, is there a way to put an image of your book on your blog that would take a person to where it's listed on Amazon or the publisher's site- or would you have to fulfill the orders yourself?

If your book is being sold on Amazon.com you can promote that page by attaching it to an image using the code for the image of your book and the link. It's just simple HTML.

If you are an affiliate of Amazon you can get codes directly from them for text and/or image links.

If not you can post a photo of your book or a text link and hyperlink it directly to the book on Amazon and people can purchase it from Amazon. Amazon would fill all the orders.

To get the non-affiliate hyperlink, you can copy and paste the link to your book in several ways. Here is one..
http://www.amazon.com/dp/ASIN OF YOUR BOOK

I can show you examples of this if you are still unclear.

I sell tons of my eBooks every month on Amazon - it's a great opportunity!

Default question

[QUOTE=I sell tons of my eBooks every month on Amazon - it's a great opportunity![/QUOTE]

I've been thinking of writing a range of short NF eBooks aside from my novels and putting them on Amazon.

Since you seem to have had some success at this (I'm assuming you are selling nonfiction) could you give me a general idea of the word count of your books? Are these full fledged nonfiction books of 100,000 words or more, or are you having success with books in a range of say 10,000 words?

thanks!
