There are numerous ways to begin this process and it can all seem daunting when faced with so many avenues. Which way to go? Do you try all of these marketing strategies? It can be so confusing and where do you start?
A good place to start when it comes to publishing is Amazon kindle submissions. It can be a frustrating process and if you are self-publishing it is vital that your work is formatted correctly according to Amazon’s specifications even if it means that you get it done professionally. It is a good place to start and gives you good exposure as they offer a print service as well.
Other outlets include social media, other publishing outlets, (be prepared to contribute to the overall costs if you are a new author) radio station interviews, write ups, blogger’s recommendations and launches.
It is a long journey but definitely worth it in the end.
