Okay, here comes another book contest post. This one does come with some advice though, which I’m sure someone will appreciate.
Self Promotion seems somewhat selfish and pushy. But if you don’t promote your book, NO ONE IS GOING TO KNOW ABOUT IT OR BUY IT!
I found this out the hard way. Truly I did.
No self promotion = no book sales = depressed author.
I feel sort of bad about making all these posts trying to get people to buy my book, but it seems like after I’ve made one of these posts, I get 3 or 4 sales that week, which is awesome. And it is thanks to all my friends who reblog my posts, tweet about my book, post reviews, and do guest blogs about me and my work. Thank you everyone! You’re the best!
And of course, for those of you who might have missed my other posts, I’m trying to sell 100 eBooks by July. If I can do that, (I’m going to need 75 more sales for this to work, mind you!) I’ll be passing out some prizes. Three, to be exact: a PDF pre-release copy of my book Me and Billy the Kid, an Amazon e-gift card, and a Kindle e-gift card.
I’ve got two books for sale:
