EXPECTATIONS ARE EVERYTHING!

Some authors are happy to circulate their book within their own community. And, to be fair, if fifty people read your book and are moved by it, you have done more to influence people than most do in a lifetime. Others want more. For those authors, we are ready to help with resources that can raise your profile.

AMAZON

Let’s be real. More online book sales, whether print or ebook, happen on Amazon than anywhere else. Amazon’s publishing platform offers options that can help with sales, from free alternatives like your Author Central Page, to affordable book promotion programs that put “impressions” of your book before more potential buyers when they search on Amazon.

GOING BEYOND AMAZON

We have an archive of articles and references that offer tips on how to increase awareness of your book. Following are examples.

BOOK AWARDS FOR INDEPENDENT AND SMALL PRESS AUTHORS

We’ll help you find national book award contests, deadlines and submission guidelines, as well regional award programs. Winning one of these contests can help your book stand out in the sea of books published annually.

Some examples:

  • The Eric Hoffer Award.
  • The Independent Publisher Book Awards.
  • The IBPA’s Benjamin Franklin Awards.
  • The Writers Digest Self-Published Book Award.

We’ll also help you find book award contests in your state or region. For instance, for Florida writers, the Florida Writers Association and Florida Library Association, among other groups, have annual contests.
