Hi, I hope to get back to doing book reviews at some point, because I can’t do them right now because I’m reading so many books as a Hammett Award screener that—and I can’t talk about any of them, of course—that it’s very hard for me to get to any other books, but I’m managing somehow to do that. But I will eventually get to that. What I would like to do right now actually is talk about what your needs are, because I often think about what it is that indie authors might want to know, what people who are interested in self-publishing might want to know. But I have no idea if what I’m saying is connecting. I mean, or if my assumptions are correct.
Hi everyone. This weekend. I got to sit in on a session—a Zoom session—with bookstagrammers, and I just thought I would put it in a few words for bookstagram. Bookstagram seems like a pretty cool way to get the word out about your books and about your writing, in general.
Hi, everyone! 🙂
One of the things I want to talk about is building a reader fan base. And I think the best way to do that is find a way online to create a community of fans, and doing that takes more than simply adjusting a few keywords or finding categories on Amazon. It takes a lot more than that. And that’s the danger of relying on Amazon alone or simply keywords and things like that alone. You don’t know who you’re getting or what you’re getting.
Hi! I’m going to talk today about ways to market your work that you might not have thought about. And I don’t know if you’re familiar with the fact that Amazon has all these additional categories that your book can get placed in. I figured I would give that a try and let you know how that worked.
