Book Marketing 101

When you set out to write your first book you had grand illusions of international book tours and invitations to red carpet events.  Didn't you?  Well, maybe that was just us.  Regardless, when putting pen to paper most writers never envision the incredible amount of work it will someday take to spread the word about their masterpiece.  Once upon a time in a land far, far away publishers took care of all that for authors.  All authors had to do was kick out some really powerful prose in a timely manner, and the rest would more or less take care of itself (thanks to the publisher).

But the publishing industry, it is a-changing, and fast!  Even the most well established traditional publishers are looking to authors to pick up their game.  So whether you're self publishing, or you've chosen to take on the whole shebang by going the self publishing route, chances are you've got your work cut out for you.

This blog has been created to help authors share their experience with marketing their books.  What works? What doesn't work?  How to market without breaking the bank.
