Challenges of an Indie Author

I have to say a year ago, I thought writing a book would be the most difficult thing to do. Well, I was wrong. Marketing and advertising has topped the list of everything difficult an author is faced with in regards to making her/his book noticed and read.

Of course the internet is saturated with information on how to market and advertise (which is not the same thing by the way) and although it all sounds easy, it can be challenging and a little discouraging. However, I’m not giving up. I will do everything in my power to market and advertise my book, including a roundtable with reading groups and more.

I love my book and wholeheartedly believe you will too, just give it a chance. Keep one thing in mind, the second edition of Piazza Navona is in the works and should be out mid December – addressing the misspelled words undetected by various computerized editing programs, and the formatting errors also undetected by the publishing company on more than one occasion.

So, bottom line is – buy the book if you don’t mind the minor spelling errors and incorrect indents. Wait for the second edition, if you do. Meanwhile, I will organize book signings and put out a calendar of events (very shortly) and welcome anyone who wants to invite me to make a public appearance to discuss the book, or how I came about to writing a novel and what are the obstacles in committing to write a novel.

As always, I do thank you from the bottom of my heart.
