Promoting Your Book as a New or Self-Publishing Author

So you’ve finally written that book you’ve been dreaming of writing for years. And even better, you’ve now published it and it’s available on Amazon. But…now what? How do you make people aware that you’ve written and published your book? How do you get people interested in buying and reading it?

Overcoming Writer’s Block

All writers get it. All writers hate it. We often don’t know what to do about it. Yep, I’m talking about the dreaded Writer’s Block! As a writer, I have personally experienced this most annoying of hindrances when it comes to my work. In this post, I will share some methods that I have found helpful for overcoming that blank page inside your head and getting the words flowing again.

Do I Really Need an Editor?

I hear this question often, and the short answer is: yes! Every writer needs an editor. I am a writer and an editor, and I seek outside editorial help on my own work. I don’t edit my own writing because it is very difficult to edit one’s own work. I try, like all of us, to put my work away for a while once it is completed and then come back to it with fresh eyes, but that is so difficult to do when you are excited about a project and anxious to get it into the public’s hands.
