Getting publicity for a self-published book is an exciting challenge. I’ve given away dozens of copies, begged my friends, held sales all for the promise of an honest review, somewhere. About one-in-ten promises have been kept so far. I think if half of the those who promised come through for me I can consider myself lucky.
The latest thing I’m trying though is paying for reviews. Ther are many sites out there which will push your book to professional readers for a fee. It is cheaper than advertising your book directly and doesn’t result in instant sales but reviews will also feed the algorithm.
I’ll keep you up to date but here are the first professional reviews for your entertainment.
Self-publicity is such a difficult thing. If you can find a reputable reviewer, definitely worth it.
