I’m currently in the middle of writing a novel I wanted to publish soon. Originally I wanted to go down the traditional publishing route as opposed to self publishing because I thought I wouldn’t have to market it. After some research I realised that wasn’t the case.
Now I’m panicking since apart from wattpad and a rarely used Facebook account, I’m not very visible online and don’t know where to start.
I set up Twitter today to get started but I still feel worried about how to put myself out there, to the point where I’m not writing as much as I want to focus on marketing.
What are your tips for approaching the online world as a writer and how to find my audience without bombarding people with over promotion?
