On this blog I’ve written about craft books on writing, writing conferences, Scrivener and Indie publishing. I released my debut series two weeks ago. So now what?
Would my marketing experiences interest you? I’m keeping a record of the promotion opportunities I try, noting the requirements and the cost. I’m also rating the success of each. At some point I’ll compile the information in a neat chart and share it. For now, I’ll just talk.
This week I arranged to have Covert Danger featured on Ebook Soda (April 21st) and on eReader Cafe as a Book of the Day (on June 8th). The Indie loop writers give both venues mixed reviews. I also created the FB post above. That was easy, cheap and fun.
There are three things the experts agree on:
1. There is no one road to success in the publishing industry. You have to try different things and see what works.
2. The best thing you can do, if you are a new writer, is write the next book.
3. You need to be patient.
One and two are easy. Three… not so much.
How about you? Do you have favorite ways to promote your books? Are you interested in blog posts about me trying different venues? I’d love to hear your opinion.
