I have actually authorized with huge publishers, tiny authors, college publishers, and am now with a crossbreed publisher. When I signed the agreement, I did not recognize if I would certainly take advantage of this brand-new publishing technique. In return for a very little monetary investment, I get numerous services from my author. Month-to-month webinars are one solution as well as one of the most current one was about book promotion.
The thought of book promotion makes me grimace. Selling is not really in my nature. Still, I take pride in my new collection and also want people to know about it. When the webinar was over, I acted upon two of the concepts. By the end of the day, I had actually thought about a month’s worth of advertising ideas. A few of these suggestions are author-specific, but many will put on all authors.
