Marketing Books

IMGP6584Marketing our books can be hard work, and I always seek out new ways to promote my novels. I am proud to be an ‘Indie’, and love it when I find places that support the self-published author.

Today I was sent information about this site. They promote your book free of charge, (or you can pay to get a bit more promo support). I paid. It is $10 (or $12 thanks to tax as I live in Cyprus).

I also run a promotion site for free: . The site is very busy, and I am thrilled with the way it is growing. Several authors have contacted and said they have had a rise in sales since being showcased. I do not review the books, I simply advertise, and promote out to Twitter, Google+, and Facebook. Five per week are showcased, and I am full until October, so you can see it is getting popular! I accept all genre, and the books eventually sit on a permanent page in their selected genre for readers to find. A mini library.

I've also won a few poetry contests, my first was at the age of twelve, (a poem about the Bangladeshi war). I also won a children's short story competition where the prize was a first-aid box, I was so proud but my husband found it amusing because we owned two pharmacies.
