Book Promotion

Tell Me a Story - Publicity Info.

For those with a book just out or about to be published, it's an exciting time. You probably have visions of fame and glory .... sorry to bust your bubble, but it doesn't quite work like that.

After the euphoria of holding that novel in your hands the truth starts to dawn. You need sales. Who is going to purchase?

Without promotion no one will know your book exists, there will be no sales, no best-seller, no matter how brilliant the writing.

The sad truth is, that for the majority of authors, there will no promotion campaign from the publishers. YOU will be responsible for your own publicity. How to do it, what to do?

As a starting point take a look at these tips for getting started with book promotion from Rusty Shelton of Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists.

Anthony, thank you for sharing Rusty's tips for getting started with book promotions. You're so right when you say the author will be responsible for their own publicity. I'm not published yet, but I'm doing everything I can to lay the groundwork for that day.
