Forgive Me if I’m Marketing Too Loud


When an author makes the decision to self-publish, generally we just see the tip of the iceberg in terms of what we’ll have to do to launch our books. Once we get down and dirty with the publication process, we realize just how much is going to fall on our shoulders. We’re responsible for everything:

  • Editing
  • Formatting our books for E-readers and/or Print-on-Demand–two entirely different animals
  • Getting our websites ready
  • Listing ourselves on Goodreads, writing author bios, writing book blurbs
  • And FINALLY, the big one: MARKETING

Now, granted, we can pay to have any of the above done for us. But many of us (definitely raising my hand here) don’t have the cash flow to cover all these expenses.
