I have been working with authors for 7 years and since I work in self publishing I get asked a lot of questions. The biggest question is on marketing. Well I had (what I think) is a genius idea of compiling all of my authors tips and advice on marketing and putting into one nice little neat booklet. The book launched in August 2013 and is available in print and eBook.
When I first started this project, I realized how important it was to involve other authors in the beginning stages of my self-publishing journey. I was going to only blog about my book and how to market my book but I thought – that would be silly. Why not start at the VERY beginning. That way you all can see the trials and tribulations I encounter with preparing the manuscript, doing my cover, copyright, LOC, uploading to POD, printing, distribution, eBooks….the list goes on and on. It is very overwhelming and always so much to do.
So that is how the blog was born. I have never blogged, tweeted or whatever so this will be interesting. *Be sure to hit the little follow button on the top of your screen. That way you are alerted as soon as a new blog comes up. I won’t bombard you with info…maybe once or twice a week. Promise.
P.S – I am not a writer nor an editor so enter at your own risk.
