Did you just publish your first book? It’s an exciting time, isn’t it? You’re probably thinking that now it’s time to market your book.
To learn about how to market your book, you’re probably reading blog posts like mine and absorbing as much information as you can.
Writers put so much energy into writing their books that they have little time to think about marketing them until the final edit is done.
That’s when your head tends to come up and when you stop typing. You think to yourself, “It’s time to publish!”
Mistakes You Make When You Market Your Book
No. 1 – You Start Too Late
