Our next Author Blog Challenge gets underway October 28 – REGISTER today!


Which author isn’t looking for more ideas for ways to promote their books? That’s precisely the goal of the 2016 NO EXCUSES, 3-Week Author Blog Challenge. We’ll prompt you to share your new and interesting ideas for marketing your books, with the goal of both helping others and getting new ideas to try out.

This is our 4th Annual Author Blog Challenge, so we hope to get lots of participation from authors across the globe. Whether you’ve published one book or many, are in the process of writing your book, or are just thinking about writing a book, this special 32-day challenge will give you food for your book marketing strategy – and it’s NEVER too early to begin marketing your book(s)!


We welcome authors of any genre and skill level, published or just thinking about it, ebook or printed book, well known and with less exposure, from any location. We’ll offer a daily writing 123 Woman making decisionprompt on a topic related to writing, publishing, and/or book marketing – but feel free to write on any subject that moves you. If you have author friends anywhere in the world who write in English and you think would like to participate, please invite them!

NOTE: You must post on YOUR blog – and let us know so we can read and share your posts, as well as give you credit for the day.

We’ll be doing a Giveaway of the Day – so if you have something digital to donate, please be sure to indicate that on the registration form.

If you have questions, please read the GUIDELINES. If your question is not answered in the RULES, please email me. Then, get yourself registered! We will get underway at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 28. All times are Pacific Daylight.

The Author Blog Challenge is hosted by Laura Orsini and her alter ego, Marcie Brock, of the Marcie Brock – Book Marketing Maven
blog. All who register for the Author Blog Challenge will receive a complimentary copy of Laura’s special report: “138 Tips to Help You Blog Like a Pro.”
