A TIP FROM AUTHOR ANN HARRISON-BARNES
Here at Tell-It-To-The-World Marketing, where we support talented authors, as well as successful business owners in their marketing, by marrying social media, with more traditional approaches,
the goal is to help the client market their Book, Blog, or Business to the very best of their ability.
One of the best ways for me to do this, is to share tips with my clients, so that they can define the services I provide them, to better meet their needs.
This afternoon as I was digging my way out of the ever-growing piles of Email, I get every-day I ran across a note from author Ann Harrison-Barnes. Who by the way is getting ready to launch a new book.
Anyhow, she seems to be a podcast addict much as I am a blogging addict and she is always sending me the neatest stuff.
Here’s Ann to tell you all about her tip of the day.
I was listening to the Ask Win podcast this morning, and Win Charles was talking to Shane Dawson about an app that he and his brother found called the Work App. On this app, you can advertise your business, place classified ads for any products you sell, list events, place podcast links in the community listing in the entertainment section and more. All this can be done for free and you can boost posts for free. Unlike a social media app, where posts get lost in the mosh pit, these adds can be boosted into the search results for free.
There is one thing I noted when I tested the app itself. There are some unlabeled buttons, but I’ll probably use the work app for notifications and messages. However, I looked at the site first and using google chrome, I found it to be accessible. The site can be found at the following link:
If you want to search for the app, you will need to type work app works for you into the search field in the app store.
This would be a great place to help authors promote their work or promote your own work. I’m planning to advertise my books up there, to see how well it helps with book sales.

In the words of Ann Harrison-Barnes, January 2019
I am the proud single mother of a beautiful daughter, who is often the inspiration for many of my stories featuring children. I have three nieces and a nephew whom I love from the bottom of my heart.
I have found music to be a great source of healing throughout rough and painful times in my life. I also find it to be a great source of inspiration through traditional means and through the world around me.
About my blindness:
Although I was not born prematurely, I was placed in an incubator and given 24 hours of oxygen, when I should have only received eight. This excessive amount of oxygen caused my optic nerves not to develop properly, resulting in my blindness. I have light perception in my left eye, and none in my right. The right eye was removed when I was eighteen months old and I have worn prostheses since then, until recently. I have used a cane since I was about five years old, accept during the period from April 2006 to March 2009, when I worked my one and only guide dog named Star. She was a black lab Golden retriever mix from Southeastern Guide Dogs.
Where I live and work: I currently live in Rochelle, Georgia near my parents and one of my two brothers, when he’s not working on the road. I have worked from home for various freelance clients, while writing my novels. These clients include Mia Bysinger from Rushcube, a web development company and Earnest Dempsey’s Word Matters Blog.
Why I write: First of all, I love creating stories that will entertain my readers. Through these entertaining stories, I also hope to either share the message of God’s love or bring back childhood memories, through my Children’s books. I journal for healing and brainstorming. I am writing non-fiction to help aspiring authors self-publish their own books through Amazon
Hobbies: My hobbies include listening to music and podcasts, reading, crocheting and sitting out on the front porch on a warm day.
Music I enjoy: I love listening to classic country music, instrumental pieces such as classical, new age piano pieces and film scores. I also find that the environment is filled with natural music.
Podcasts I find educational and entertaining: I have a variety of podcasts I listen to on a daily basis. Some of my favorites include: The Author Stories Podcast with Hank Garner, The Creative Penn, I Should be Writing, Ditch Diggers, Eyes On success, how do you Write and Writing Excuses.
My favorite authors and genres: I love to read books by Karen Kingsbury, Janette Oke, Hope Callahan, and I love finding new authors. My favorite genres include: Christian fiction, cozy mystery, sweet romance, Romantic suspense and fantasy. I’ll also read the occasional memoire.
My Faith: I am a Christian. I believe that Jesus died on the cross to save my soul. In God’s word, Jesus said “I am the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by me.” (John 14:6, KJV)
