My son made me an Instagram for my books. You can find me at pamelatheauthor. I’m just getting started, so I need followers to share my pics and show support! Please?
Calling all authors! Please! Do not forget about the book clubs!
These are some of the main people you should be reaching out to. Trying to put your book in front of. Especially your local book clubs. You would be surprised at how many are in your city, or near you.
The best thing to do is send them an email, message, a copy of your book, or attend one of their meetings with your book. Sell yourself to them if it looks like they might be interested in what you have to offer them.
The best things for authors, are the local things. I have attended a few local events as a vendor. I set up my table with my books, and sold them to people who were at my table with an interest in my books. I did pretty good too!
Good exposure is best when local. Get your community to support you and show support for your community. A great start. Don’t you think?
Pamela The Author’s Website As a self published author of fiction, a lot of hard work goes in to marketing your work. One technique I commonly use, is leaving my business cards where I go. Hoping that someone will see it then take interest in checking me out. Well, checking my books out.
I received this message today from someone who said, he got my card from SFO. All the travelling I had been doing these past months, I better be leaving business cards around! And it worked!
Book marks. Brochures. Posters. Any little thing with some basic information on it can take a person’s curiosity to the next level. You never know who might stumble on it. I’m very happy and thankful he found my card and looked for himself. Every bit helps a self published author!
This urban fiction is a deep look into Chancy’s life as a sugar baby, with a rich albino man who has a money hungry mother. Not only does she have to deal with her new sugar daddy, Eamon, she has to deal with his mother, who tries to push and run her away from him.
“The doorbell caught her attention. She closed the top on the grill and ran to the door. She stopped before unlocking the door and pulling it open. She took a few deep breaths to calm her nerves. The thought hit her that maybe she should grab her a shirt to put on so Eamon’s cousin would feel more comfortable. Too late now. Just open the door.
When she opened the door, she saw more than one person on the other side. Two guys. And one woman. One of the guys was standing closer to the door. This one spoke to her.
‘Hey Chancy! Clinton, Eamon’s cousin. How ya doing?’
Giving a smile before unlocking the screen door, she giggled little bit then pushed the door open as wide as she could. She took a few steps back to let them in then locked the doors. As she did this, the woman looked her up and down in disgust.
‘Who are you?’
Clinton cleared his throat because he knew what was about to happen.
‘Auntie, this is Eamon’s baby, Chancy. Chancy, this is Eamon’s mother. Ezra.’
Feeling like she would throw up on the floor, Chancy tried to breathe and relax herself. Just to hear that this woman in front of her was the same woman causing Eamon so much anger, was not something she was ready for so unexpectedly. Especially with her looking as if she was standing in the wrong house when it was hers. Finally reaching a hand out to greet Ezra, Chancy smiled.
‘Hi, how are you?’
She looked at Chancy’s hand then back at her face. She stood still as she stared at Chancy. It took her three seconds to realize that the woman did not want to greet her physically. She was shocked and confused. Pulling her stranded hand back, she looked at Clinton and started walking back outside to check on the food. Clinton looked at his auntie and made a disappointing face at her. As Chancy walked away looking hurt, Eamon came walking down the stairs. He seen Chancy walking away then noticed his mother. He looked at Chancy’s face and put the missing piece of the puzzle together.”
