Authors for Authors
Today’s Authors for Authors is about promotion.
Here’s the biggie: theories on promo, self-promotion vs. spamming, and what is your social media quota for each day or week?
The answer comes from Edward Kendrick again, per request of the readers.
I promote each of my books about a week before they’re due out, and then on the day they come out, on my Facebook page, my blog, and on several Facebook groups—as well as some Yahoo groups—that I belong to. I’ll also let people know when I get a good review, or make a best-sellers list. I try to keep it to that because I don’t want people to get the ‘Jeez, I’ve already seen that ten times’ feeling. I do put links to my books, with the cover image, on the sidebar of my blog, and the cover images with the publisher’s name on my Facebook banner. That’s about the extent of my promoting. Too little? Perhaps. But I’m not willing to take the chance that people will get tired of seeing ‘Buy my book/books’ every time they turn around.
