How to Market Your Self-Published Book to Independent Bookstores
This desire is justified: obviously, every one of us wants to go down in history as a person who wrote a bestseller or even a masterpiece that future generations will gladly read.
This seems like a wonderful dream that just comes true when you finish writing your book. Yet, in reality, not everything is as easy as it may seem. It’s likely that a publishing house will refuse to work with you or the editor won’t like your book. Besides, the added expense of working with a publishing house can strip you of the money that you can put into really smart book promotion strategies.
Because if you’re an author and have decided to self-publish your book, the job to market and promote your work falls completely on your shoulders. All marketing efforts that are usually performed by the publishing house, will be your job.
