4 SITES THAT HELP PROMOTE BOOKS FOR NEW AUTHORS

4 SITES THAT HELP PROMOTE BOOKS FOR NEW AUTHORS

Here are 4 sites that will help new authors in book promotion.

Today  I spent the time researching book  promotion.  So I’m finishing up the  2nd draft  of my  first novel  During the  Blue  Hour.  A  paranormal  fantasy novel about  a different  kind of werewolf . If you want to read  what’s it about  you can on the about  page .  Well  I have 9 chapters to go.  I’m going to be self-publishing it. However, I’m nowhere  near ready as  of yet.   I’m  still going to revise and  write  one more quick draft before its completion.  

Although  I’m  working on this big werewolf novel  I also have a short story anthologies  that are going to be  a part  of the Blue Hour Series. Yes  it’s going to be a  series  of  six books all together. You can check the list out here of all the short stories that I’m currently writing for the series as well. 

Along with the  Blue Hour werewolf series I’m  working on another series called  the  Mictlan  Series  .  That series  is also a paranormal series  however  it has nothing to do with werewolves  but  everything  to do  with  Aztec  mythology and the  gods and goddesses  of  the  Aztec  . 

Right now the series has started  to be published on Amazon  with Sofia’s  Journey  . You  can check out that book  and leave  a review  about  it  if you like  it.  But  I’m continuing with the  story on Vella  with  The Journey  Begins.  You can also check that out as well. 

With these  books  already being published and  my  plans for publishing During the Blue Hour  I have to  research  book  promotion  cause  books wont’ promote themselves. What I have to  say about it  is that  it is hard  work.  Tiring  and  frustrating. Even though  I’ve been  writing for over twenty years and won a couple  of contest and  had my work produced at theatres as a playwriter and screenwriter I don’t  really  have a  following. I never had to promote my work . So I guess  I would be considered a  new author when it comes  to novel writing.  So  how  do  I get my book  out there for people  to see and read if I’m  a  new author?

Well  through my research  so far I found  these sites that help  promote  books for new authors . Some of them are  free and some are at a cost  but  I’ll list  my 4 favorite  down below .

AWESOME GANG

MY BOOK PLACE

DISCOUNT BOOK MAN

Through my search  today  I also found that you have to make sure your book  is under correct  keywords so it can be found through  google and amazon by readers. I found that daunting as well.  Trying to find the best  keywords  to match  my  book.  It’s  taken  forever  to find the right keywords but  there are  keywords  searches  that are offered in ordered  to search for  the best ones. 

This is what  I figured  out today as a  new author; that  book  promotion  is  a journey that writers   must  go on if they want  readers  to read their  work.  There must  be a lot of research  done.  I  also found out  it does  take time and patience . It doesn’t happen overnight . It  could  take weeks, months , years  even   for the  self-promotion journey to pay off. 

I’m willing to  continuing to go on this  journey   and  so  I will  keep you posted .
