Swenson Book Development, LLC is pleased to announce that starting in September our blog will begin featuring three weekly articles or columns. Here’ what we have planned for our subscribers to receive on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings.

Tuesday:              For the love of books

                Those who publish and sell books for more than the sake of a lousy buck are today’s unsung heroes. Ithaca is home to an amazing variety of small and independent presses, a world class academic press, a cooperatively owned independent bookstore, and an incredible number of authors per capita. Here we introduce you to our hometown heroes and fellow book lovers and makers. Publishers and bookstores from around the country will also make appearances. We’ll begin the series with some profiles in the west. From Utah and Washington to Georgia and Texas, we’ll share our favorite bookstores and photos of friends.

Thursday:            Books we love

                Good writers and readers read good writing. Everybody loves a good book. Here we’ll offer book reviews of fiction and non-fiction. New releases in non-fiction and memoir will be included, but we’ll also share some fiction classics and other titles worth re-reading. You can find our past reviews on Shelfari, LibraryThing and Goodreads.

Saturday:             We speak fluent book

                Do you, dear writer, know how to build your audience platform? Are you looking for ways to improve your social media metrics? We’ll simplify your efforts to use these communication tools by translating the lingo into small, bite-sized portions every Saturday morning. We will explain not just how to use, but also why you need these tools to promote your book and enhance its success in today’s market.

Whether you are a reader, author, editor, publicist, social media marketing specialist or publisher, we hope you will find our blog helpful, and that you will come back for more…

For the love of books!
