I just spent most of this weekend on a site where authors are more than willing to help other authors. At first I felt silly asking the question that I was struggling with and hesitated, wondering if it was a stupid question and will anyone even read what I’ve asked.
Oh contraire! I received so much valuable information that I had to rewrite it all down in an outline so I could address each individual suggestion and remark as I march forward into the world of marketing my books.
I guess the hardest thing is coming to the realization that an author cannot write a book and then sit down and wait for their readers. You have to “toot your horn” and embark into all the avenues you can to reach your reader…which is no easy task.
As I mentioned before, the hard part is not writing the book, but the promotional aspect that has me scratching my head. I'm new in this field and have much to learn.
I want to thank all those who reached out to me on the Indie Author Group for your help!
