It’s that time of year again, the beginning! Why not start yours by making the following resolution?
In 2019 I will do (at least) one thing every day to promote my writing.
I realize that marketing is a foreign language to many authors, and even those who are familiar with it don’t usually enjoy it. But if you want people who aren’t your friends and family to buy your work, it’s something you simply have to do.
Here are some suggestions, some broad and some granular, that should get you going:
Asking, “How do I market a book?” is kind of like asking, “How long is a ball of string?” How much effort to put in is up to you, but over time hard work and persistence will pay off. You just have to keep at it and try to keep a positive attitude. Remember, you wrote a book! That’s an incredible accomplishment in and of itself.
Happy New Year!
