Happy two year anniversary to IWSG! If you're not familiar with this meme, it was started by Alex Cavanaugh and is a group of writers who share their insecurities, encouraging words, and support. Click here to join us.
Rumor has it Alex has a big announcement to share today, so be sure to stop by his blog.
My insecurity stems from the release last month of my second book. It's getting great reviews, which makes me very happy. I have a special place in my heart for these characters, and I'm thrilled that readers like them too. But the eBook market is fierce and it seems like only a handful of books reach the broader market. A lot of these books are from big publisher and were part of a large marketing plan, making it so that readers know about them. That's not to say there aren't books out from smaller publishers that are doing well. Same with some self published books. So how did these books get seen by the masses? What did the authors or publishers do to get them in front of even more readers?
Hold Tight was on tour last week. This fall I will be participating in several blog hops. I'm hoping to do a few guest posts, a book blast, maybe team up with other authors who have YA supernatural books out to do a group blog tour. I'm always on the look out for local events that will allow me to meet readers. I know I'm missing something. I'd love to hear what you and/or your friends do to promote your books.
Happy writing everyone!
