Recently on Facebook, someone announced with understandable pride and pleasure that they had just published their first book. More than 500 people Liked the post. But as the poster provided neither the title of the book nor a link so people could get more information or buy the book – 500 chances of connecting readers with the author’s hard work and achievement were lost.
The first of a series of Weekly Tip Sheets – my new project for 2022 – is Promoting Your Self-Published book.
The series will focus on various elements of writing and publishing, all 52+ of which will be compiled at year-end into an ebook, proceeds from the sale of which will go to Literacy Central Vancouver Island.
Meanwhile, individual Tip Sheets will be posted here for interested writers to download and use for free. With 30 years of teaching to draw on – and more than 130 handouts – I have lots to work with, and hope to provide useful info for all those people whose main concern at the end of a conference or workship is “Were there handouts?”.
Each two-page sheet includes ten to twelve tips, and links to related How To information, building on the content of the tips provided.
Please download the first in the series, read, share, and contact me with comments and suggestions for further Tip Sheets.
