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