Author J.Grayland

Amazon Ads- These are not too bad you just need a lot of patience (Besides a kiss ass book lol) You don’t need to spend a lot of money to get impressions of your books out on Amazon so don’t spend a lot of money use a budget of $1 a day and use as many keywords as possible especially 2-3 words strung together. Look at books that are in the same genre as yours and make a list of their keywords and chuck them in as well (The more the merrier right?).

“If you post anything art or literature related, reblogging with Cristian is a great, inexpensive way to gain some extra exposure.”Jeff Coleman

Hi guys,

Last twenty four hours to take advantage of these low, low prices on advertising.

THE MORE YOU BUY, THE BETTER.

What is a reblog?

I’d call them trailers for blog posts.

Let’s say you write a blog post. So, I choose a short snippet of that post (usually the first lines) then add a link to your post. I put this on my blog.

This way, over 133, 000 people get to see this short preview. Those who want to read more, click on the link and go to your blog.

I was naive enough to believe that after I got a publishing contract, the publisher would do all sorts of promotion, while I’d visit bookstores and go to events they’d set up. Sure, I’d need a website, and probably a Facebook page, but I wouldn’t have to be the one “selling” my book. “They” would do that.

Contract signed, and The Hanged Man’s Noose out, reality came crashing in pretty quickly. These days, authors are expected to do the bulk of their own advertising and promotion—and set up their own events and bookstore visits.
