  1. Very nice tips for some of us who have been authoring but with limited time to market our books. I will try these tactics and share my results here.

    • Thanks Logan. I really appreciate that, and I’m glad you find the content useful. If there’s anything specific you’d like to see that I haven’t covered yet, I hope you’ll let me know. I’m always open to suggestions for new resources to add. 🙂

  2. Another marketing strategy I am trying (and I am brand new to all of this) is entering my self published book in several different book award contests such as the International Book Awards, the San Francisco Book Festival and the MWSA Book Review/Awards. The entry fee is relatively cheap ($40-$79) and even if my book wins only an honorable mention, it’s still great publicity.
