History Book Recommendations

History Recommedations

I’m looking for non-fiction and historical fiction titles of the following:

  1. Stories and historic events that take place in Africa.
  2. Mesopotamia
  3. Events including Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism.
  4. Empire of China
  5. Alexander-Empire-Builder
  6. Ancient Rome and Early Christianity
  7. The Kingdom of Aksum and East African Trade
  8. Hunters and Farmers in the Americas
  9. Byzantium becomes the New Rome
  10. Germanic Kingdom Under Charlemagne
  11. The Age of Chivalry
  12. Church Reform and the Crusades
  13. Trade, Towns, and the Financial Revolution
  14. Mayan Kings and Cites
  15. The Aztecs control over Central Mexico
  16. The Inca
  17. The Ottoman’s Empire
  18. The Columbian Exchange and Global Trade
  19. The Enlightenment of Europe
  20. Age of Democracy and Progress

My Thanks! I appreciate the help.

Don’t Lose Sight

Previously published at L.A.P. it Marketing LLC

I have worked in the book industry for five plus years and have worked with international bestselling authors, award winning authors, publishers, and I am a big supporter of self-publishing. I continue to help authors create a brand on social media to reach a wider audience. Branding is vital for the success of your book and creating new marketing strategies is a must. Having said this, you must not lose sight of why you tell stories or you will lose your readership. When marketing, put yourself in the reader’s shoes, what would you like to see from your favorite authors? What do you want to hear them talk about? What inspires you to want to read stories? Ponder on these things and you’ll find yourself coming up with new ways in showcasing your stories in far more interesting ways than the “buy me” marketing strategy.

Many Literary Small Presses do little to no marketing for their authors before book pre-launches or after the books are released. That leaves the author to do their own promoting and often times they find themselves with limited resources to do so or the know-how. L.A.P. it Marketing LLC offers several book launch and book promotional packages and will also work with the author to tailor their promotional needs at an affordable rate. Why not give us a try?
