Marketing An Indie Novel


Marketing is probably the most difficult task an indie author undertakes. Convincing others to see your book just as you do, expressing meanwhile the need for such a paperback stacked among the rest on a table display in their bookstores.

While most are receptive, asking that I provide a sell-sheet detailing everything about the book, publicity plans and sales information and also bibliographic details, they cannot guarantee at the end of the day they would carry the book.

I am okay with that. I would rather strive to reach out and be rejected, then to wonder if I should have, could I have?

So, wish me luck. I am reaching out to all the necessary channels to get my novel visibility in traditional bookstores as I believe that is still the best way to be noticed.
