Find Me in ALL The Places….
Hide and Seek?
Authors have a different job now than they did when I was growing up reading books by writers like Judy Blume, and Danielle Steel. Back in those days it seems like the author’s only job was to write. The publisher did everything else. Things are different now, which is both really cool and completely overwhelming.
Self-publishing has become so much easier (thank you, Internet) that many authors never have to bother dealing with a publishing house. This is amazing, because it means we get to keep WAY more cash. But it also means that being an author has become similar to running a small business.
That means doing all the marketing, as well as designing covers, formatting, keeping in touch with readers, and the extra-fun stuff like taxes, and loads more stuff I probably don’t even know about yet.
I still have shit-loads of stuff to learn about how to market a book, but the most obvious place to start seems to be social media.
So – wanna follow me? Be my friend? Join my reader group? All my social media channels are just to the left of this post (kinda like me…). I hope you’ll join me!
