Comment to 'How to market your book'
  • I am very new to the book writing and publishing life, My problem is I don't know where to start with marketing my first book. Its on wattpad.com as of right now. Is it best to let it sit there for a while to drum up readers or is there something I can actively do to help promote my book?

    • Yep. There are seven million ebooks on Amazon and a fairly small minority of those have sold more than 10 copies. IN short: you have to market.

      How? Well, that's a big question and you have to commit. But the answer is given (in a very tiny nutshell) in this blog post:

      But really, to do this properly, you have to be more systematic than that. We've got a complete starter course for self-publishers available, free, to members of Jericho Writers. You can sign up for JW membership right here: https://members.jerichowriters.com/bazaar/full-membership/ 

      Other services are available of course, but what I would say is that you stand next to no chance of making real sales (and ultimately making a living) from your work unless you proceed systematically and with commitment. Good luck!
