Book publishing advices for aspiring and known authors? Market Your Book: If you aren’t a major public figure, it’s unrealistic to think you can publish your book and the world will just stumble upon it. Making sure your book metadata is as good as it can be is one way for people to discover your book organically online, but you still have to promote your book in order for it to succeed. You can do this via guerrilla marketing efforts, book reviews, book publicity, social media advertising, and so much more. Be sure to plan your book promotion and get a handle on your book marketing strategy before you publish your book for the best results.

Contact newspapers: Write a press release. This is usually a one-page article about you, your book or the subject matter. You’ll want to hook a reporter’s interest with a strong opening paragraph, and make them want to know more. Print advertising: Have a professional designer create promotional pieces to assist in marketing such as bookmarks with your web address or phone number, business cards, posters, flyers or brochures.

Keep in touch with your fans. As bestselling writer Bella Andre told DBW (Digital Book World): When I released my first original self-published story (LOVE ME) in July 2010 I took a week and wrote a personal email to everyone who had ever written to me in the previous five years. Almost every one of them wrote back to say, “Wow, I can’t believe you still had my email!” LOVE ME was a sequel to a book that Pocket had put out in 2005 (TAKE ME). For five years readers sent me email asking for the sequel. It was a thrill to finally be able to give it to them.
