Self-Publishing Tip — 1

When you decide to self-publish, you can’t just put the book up for sale on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or other ebook retailers. This is no time to sit back and wait for the money to roll in. You have work to do, my friend, and this work should be started before you publish. If you haven’t done so, start a Facebook page and sign up for Twitter. Join groups that deal with promoting eBooks. Trust me on this, don’t put any of this off to the last minute. If you have a regular FB page, set up one for you as an author, and one for the book you are going to publish. Connect with other indie authors. When they promote a book of theirs, share the link on your page. Chances are they will do the same for you when the time comes. On your author or book page, don’t talk about your family life, political views, or religious beliefs. Post about your work, and your future plans for your work. Like and Follow other authors. You need to build a network and followers, and Facebook is the best place to do this. Now, when you do start either of these pages, FB will give you an option to pay for promoting your page. I haven’t done this, and others who have, have had mixed results. It’s up to you whether you want to spend the money. Join the groups specific to the genre you are writing in. Make sure you read the rules for these groups, some have one day of the week when you can post a link about your ebook.
