Yesterday, there was a blog post that was making its rounds on Facebook. The title was perfect and caught a lot of people’s eyes; Please Shut up: Why self-promotion as an author doesn’t work. And naturally spark conversation.
The gist is that you need to pull readers towards you and not push them away by always begging them to buy or to buy and review. The need for a presence on social media and what platform to use is overwhelming. Basically, use the platform or platforms that you are most comfortable with and don’t pay for unnecessary services such as increases in Facebook or Twitter followers. There is no secret formula..
And above all.
Work on your next book, be yourself and be polite.
So, thank you for taking the time to read this and if you brought my book. Thank you, thank you. Review if you feel like it, but thank you taking the time to buy and read my book. Thank you. It is really awesome to be a published author.
I am going to get back to work on my next book.
