Taking Advice from Other Authors Marketing Tip Monday

Taking Advice from Other Authors Marketing Tip Monday

Here’s a problem I’ve come across in self-publishing. You don’t know what you don’t know. I sometimes browse writing forums. I lurk in places writers congregate. Some of these places I’ve been hanging out in for a while. Some of them are sorta new. And one thing that has bugged me since the very beginning is the way everyone touts themselves an expert. Well, I’m gonna have to object. There are very few people who actually know what they’re talking […]

So I’m gonna tip you this week, but it’s gonna be really quick because my book is due […]

Confused, recovering from an almost fatal throat injury, and stuck in the last place […]

That means Christmas is only six months away. ME: So? BRAIN: So? What are you planning? You know you need a plan or the whole month of December just goes to hell.

Five Tips to Beat the Self-Publishing Summer Sales Slump

Five Tips to Beat the Self-Publishing Summer Sales Slump

First of all, is the summer sales slump a real thing? I hear authors say it’s a myth all the time so I guess it depends on who you talk to. People who don’t need this advice will probably say no. They have great sales all summer. I’ve had a couple of great summers myself. I think this one will be pretty good as well. But I take my own advice in this blog post. I have things set up […]

Listen to the 321 Audiobook Here

This audiobook has been a long time in the making and I could not be more thrilled with how it was handled by Podium Publishing. This is the first of many audiobooks that Podium will be releasing for me and the first time I actually narrated the End of book Shit in an audiobook. Talk about fun! The narrators – Sebastian York for Ark and Ava Erickson for Blue, were both fantastic. I am 100% happy with how this all […]

How to Launch a Book – Marketing Tip Monday (on Tuesday)

How to Launch a Book – Marketing Tip Monday (on Tuesday)

How do I launch a book? I remember doing a Google search on this very sentence way, way, way back in 2012 when I was getting ready to publish for the first time. Guess what? I didn’t get an answer. I have read some pretty comprehensive posts about how “other” people launched a book and those have helped. But generally there is no one way to launch a book. And you can do everything some random successful author does and […]
