Self Publishing - Marketing

If you participated in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and have your first book under your belt or publishing a novel is on your New Year Resolution list, there's lots of information out there to help you get started with publishing and marketing.

Here are a few links I've found:

If your book is edited and ready to go, check out Smashwords Style Guide to see how to format an e-book.

Russell Blake has a wealth of information on how to market your book.

Offer free books to boost sales of your other novels. (This suggestion from Karen Woodard works great if the book is part of a series).

you are proof of the hard work involved in marketing. In a weird way it's "easy" to write the book. Then important to edit and rewrite to perfection. THEN the marketing makes or breaks it, plus having more books in the queue. You have given good information on your blog, and writers can look to you for inspiration.
