Sales. We all would love to see consistent sales of our products. They can be books, services such as coaching classes, art, games, etc. The list goes on. As an author, learning to accept that we will suffer times of feast and famine is a part of the art of marketing and writing itself.
For those who want to know what's up! So many exciting things coming your way! Read on!
We all want to write as many books as possible in our lives, right? The problem is, we seem to get ourselves stuck in the lull of every day life. Laziness, procrastination, work, kids, etc all seem to play against our desires to write another one of our stories we long to tell.
"I really liked the way this book introduced the werewolf’s and vampires to the romance genre. Along with Damien not knowing what he is capable of, which makes the leading lady the stronger more powerful one! Anyone who is looking for supernatural romance that ISN’T all about a male vampire getting some weak girl to fall in love with him is going to enjoy this book. Looking forward to book 2!" -- A. Rose
“Kain.” Damien’s voice was a comfortable echo. Warm and reassuring. “Alex. Can you hear me?” Kain opened his eyes, slightly jumping. “Tenebris?” Damien shook his head. “No. It’s me.” “Damien. How?” Damien took Kain’s jacket he was always wearing around his waist and covered his friend with it. “Stay here. Don’t move and don’t die.”
Let's say you just finished writing, editing, and getting beta readers to read your latest, greatest book. You've made it the best you can be and are ready to release it to the world. Wait? Where are the readers you hope to find? How are they going to see your book in a vast world of social media, book promotion and saturated Amazon pages? If you're asking these questions, you probably hadn't taken the time to locate what authors and publishers call the "Target Audience."
When approaching the world of an indie or self-published author, what is the biggest line of questions you often hear or ask yourself? How am I going to market this in an ever-growing industry? How can I make my book stand out against so many others on Amazon? How can I market on a budget? These are just a few questions that can be terrifying when one is just starting out.
