Selling your book

It ain’t easy.  Getting the title in front of more than just your friends and family is a task.  I’ve tried the usual: Smashwords, Amazon, LinkedIn and all my groups, Goodreads (though they seem to have a problem with my authorization because my first name isn’t identical to my pen name M L.  I’m also on the hunt for good African web sites to introduce the novel to an audience already in tune with and interested in things African.  Then there’s Twitter and the standard email signature.  These are the very basic first steps.

As I jump into the rewrite of Coyote Nightmare, I plan to devote an hour a day to the marketing and promotion of Facing the Son. I’ll keep track of what I learn here.

Still waiting for Smashwords to clear the book for their Premium Catalogue.
