If you’re an Indie Author then chances are you’ve asked yourself the following questions:
- How do I go about getting my manuscript self-published?
- What do I do about the cover?
- Now that I’ve published/released my book, what now? How do I attract a following?
I was asked (& I accepted!) to be a part of the “Marketing SFF” group spearheaded by fellow authors Lindsay Buroker and Joseph Lallo. What we (plan to) do is interview other authors and ask them what they’ve done, or are doing, to achieve the success that they have. What’s important to them? How did they make their covers? What type of marketing have they done?
Thus far we have learned about the importance of editing, selecting the right book cover, how to find an editor, how to build up a fan base, what NOT to do when finding a publisher, and so on. My turn in the chair happened last night. If you don’t mind hearing my boring voice drone on and on then I would encourage you to have a listen!
Yep, that’s me. Our hope is to help our fellow indiw authors avoid our mistakes, take advantage of our advice, and release a good quality book. For those that’d prefer to download just the audio, here’s the link:
