John Kremer in Singapore: March 13th and 14th
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Note: I'll be speaking in Singapore on March 13th and 14th at a conference sponsored by the National Book Development Council of Singapore. If you are in the area, please stop in.

You can find out more about my two-day seminar on Effective Multi-Channel Marketing for Books and eBooks at the NBDCS website: http://www.bookcouncil.sg

Webinar Replays: On Blogging and Ebook Publishing
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
During the past few weeks, I hosted two webinars on topics I felt were of key importance to book authors and publishers. You can now listen to the replays here:

Ebook Publishing on Steroids - http://blog.bookmarket.com/2012/02/book-promotion-soundbites-ebook.html

This webinar covered how you can publish ebooks quickly on a lot of different platforms. Really key information for the new world of ebooks.

How to Create a Blog That Matters - http://blog.bookmarket.com/2012/03/book-promotion-soundbites-how-to-create.html

If you want to improve your blogging effort and make better use of your blog as part of your book marketing campaign, check out this video.

The above webinar included some wonderfully inspirational stories of book authors and others who have created very successful blogs.

Facebook Pages - The New Timeline Format
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
By the end of March, you'll have to redesign and reconfigure your Facebook fan pages to fit the new Facebook timeline format. You can start now to update your pages and make the changes. As far as I'm concerned, that means now. That's what I did.

Check out my newly formatted Facebook pages:

There are several key decisions you have to make in redesigning your: 1. which tabs you'll feature 2. what large banner image you'll upload, how you will rewrite your About section (since it's now featured right below your large banner, and what post you'll pin to the top of the page (a post can be pinned for up to one week).

Here are a few articles that will help you decide how to redesign your Facebook pages:
