So the main difference between being an indie author versus working with a publisher is personal accountability. Though most authors come to the shocking realization that being traditionally published means MUCH less than they thought…but that’s a topic for another blog.
Back to accountability. If you’re an indie author you are solely responsible for the success of your work. That’s a big task, but it’s not impossible. And the key to making your book promotion efforts manageable is having the right resources in your arsenal. The right resources, in turn, will help you develop a plan of action.
This list I’ve compiled is in no particular order, and if there’s a resource you use religiously that we’ve left off please, please share it and give them some love – that’s what this is all about. I’m not doing this to kiss any rings; I’m doing this to help you become a better author.
I encourage you to work through this list, check them all out, and bookmark the ones that you vibe with, or the ones that meet your needs right now. And please bookmark this list as well, because as you grow, your book marketing needs will grow, and you’ll likely want to revisit a lot of these fab individuals and groups!
