As an indie writer, with limited resources and back-up, it can sometimes feel like you’re on your own as far as promotion and selling is concerned. You’re not really of course – family, friends, Dave Lyons at Ravencrest and some of the other Ravencrest writers, all pitch in with stuff from time to time. However, the bulk of the promo falls to me.
I’ve joined and posted on several websites, posted on Book Promo Facebook pages, had reviews on e-thriller.com, created a website and blog, created profiles on brandyourself, Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, and Google+, and had guest blogs and interviews posted on other folks sites. It’s a time-consuming, frustrating and occasionally rewarding process.
My latest foray into the world of promo is with Brendan Gisby and his fantastic Scottish based venture McVoices. I’m really excited to be involved with this collective of new, talented indie writers, all of whom have some connection or affinity with Scotland. Please do head over to the website and check out all the fantastic writers who’ve gathered to add their McVoices to the crowd. Hopefully, with so many of us, we’ll have a better chance of being McHeard!
Independents who’re Better Together! That should confuse the politicians in the run up to the Referendum.
Oh, and there’s a Facebook page to Like as well if you fancy it.
