So, I don’t know how to do this. I’m still pretty new to this whole writing/publishing gig. I’ve sold a few copies of my book, a few of my mom’s, a few short stories. It’s not even enough to cover costs so far.
That’s no big deal for me, since I expect to take years to have this make money. If it becomes profitable over seven years I will consider it having been a huge success. My mother on the other hand is relying on it. Now, I figure that means we will have to figure out some way to get her books in stores. Because I can put my own ISBN on them that removes the prejudice many bookstores have against amazon published books.
Other than that, I’m going to as many e-book publishers as I can manage, as well as print on demand services that allow the general public to order books directly.
Depending on subject there are other social media avenues that I’m using. Facebook is the big one of course, but I’ve found that I get more traffic via reddit than anything else.
If anyone has any other suggestions, I’m more than open to them.
