All I’ve done lately is read blogs about how the publishing industry is changing, how traditionally published authors complain because they aren’t making as much money as they used to, indie authors struggling to make sales. And the world goes around.
Here’s one Bob Mayer wrote on September 22 for Digital Book World. His articles are always enlightening and refreshing if you’re on the correct side of the equation.
I’ve also been reading articles that inspire you never to give up because when you do all your sales will diminish. So How many books should you be selling? Claire McKinney shares one of her experiences with a client.
I agree with what Claire is saying, because if you don’t continue to advertise and yell from the top of the mountain that your book is out there among all the hundreds of thousands that publish on a regular basis, no one will know it’s there. If the public doesn’t know of its existence they can’t buy it.
With all the eBooks inundating the market, an author needs an excellent marketing strategy and the stamina never to give up.
With limited funds, I haven’t been able to advertise Incantation Paradox, hence the world doesn’t know it exists… I need to learn more about using the social media to gain support.
Life goes on, and I’m glad I’ve got Kendíka helping me with this website.
