The publishing industry is changing quickly, consequently, so are the methods of book marketing. Authors, whether traditionally or self-published, must learn to market their own books.
Ultimately, a successful author platform is all about showcasing an author’s individual personality and writing style through a combination of blogging and social media…try saying that in one breath!
I have read (too) many marketing books over the past few months in my quest to develop my author platform. I wanted a book that would show me exactly what I needed to do in order to become a social media superstar, a blogging expert, and a technical whizz!
Most of the books I read left me wanting to abandon the whole idea or fling my computer out the window, but that would have defeated the purpose, so I bravely soldiered on and kept reading and researching.
Copious cups of tea and too many chocolate bars later, I am happy to bring you my top 5 author platform building books, which I will be reviewing in detail during the coming weeks.
