And that makes you different than other authors how? Many people say to me, “Well, that’s easy for you to say, your an established author with a huge fanbase.” But what they fail to realize is I was once right where they are–a debut author with no audience an no money.
I just passed my 10 year anniversary for my first published book and if over those ten years I spent a total of $1,000 it’s a gross overestimation. I didn’t buy advertising or have a gimmick, I built an audience by…
- Writing a book that people loved enough to tell others about and were waiting with baited-breath for my next release.
- Getting the book in front of some early adopters (who helped to spread the word as mentioned in #1).
- Rinsing and repeating. There hasn’t been a year since 2008 where I didn’t release at least one book and in some years I did two.
