Anyone who is self-publishing knows that the promotion of the book itself is entirely up to them, how much time, effort and money which goes into the project lays squarely at your feet, and it goes without saying that the more you put in the more you’ll get out.
So where do many authors turn to in order to raise awareness of their new title? Well, this question is easily answered, one of the first ports of call for the indie author is social media, this is because it’s relatively cheap to set up and with access to your feeds available upon every device you own, it’s easy to keep on top of.
But there are of course many options to choose from when it comes to deciding which social media streams you use, the most popular being Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. Obviously there are many more services out there and each person will have their own favorite (which I’m sure they’ll use to promote with too).
However, for this post we’ll look at the most popular network in the world which is Facebook.
Your belief becomes the foundation of the book’s success, once you get past the first few weeks (and the novelty of writing has worn off) your true passion and commitment are put to the test, for some this is the point where the book stalls and no more is written, it simply ends up as a file in a directory never to be opened again. But with focus and a plan you can keep going until you have a completed manuscript ready for publication.
