Doing the promotional stuff is a must, unless of course you didn't write your book so that others will read it.
" I wrote the book because love to write, and I if no one buys or reads it that's Ok."
What! Who am I kidding? Did those words just come out of my mouth? Why write a book and publish it if no one's going to read it.
I should have just left it in my computer's documents if that's truly how I felt. Why go through all the trouble of editing and re-editing, of worrying if it's good enough if I truly don't care if anyone reads it. Well I call bullshit on myself !
Of course I want my book to sell. And I want to share the story I worked so hard to create with as many readers as I possibly can.
So once I published it was up to me the independent author to get the word out there about my erotic romance novel.
I started with Facebook; http://Facebook.com/annieedmondsauthor and then my husband started designing me a Go Daddy website at which point they told him if I wanted a blog he would have to go through WordPress. But WordPress doesn't make building a blog easy. So now I don't see the point but I did have my very own dot com for a year without a blog. No one really needs to pay for a dot com anymore. Or at least I don't. Not with all the blogs and pages that I have.
I actually stumbled on BlogSpot one day while trying to post my book cover on my Google page, I was thrilled.BlogSpot was so easy and I didn't need any help to get it up and running. http://annieedmondsauthor.blogspot.com/
So now I have my website, and then I don't. But I do have my Facebook author page, a Google page; http://google.com/annieedmondsauthor and a blog. Then Smashwords has me do an interview; https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/ANNIE315 , and Amazon wants an author page http://www.amazon.com/Annie-Edmonds/e/B00G3IN528/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_1 and of course we can't forget Goodreads. http://www.goodreads.com/annieedmondsauthor.
Its actually funny that I have all these places that have a space just for me. And if someone has trouble finding Annie Edmonds the author then something is wrong with their searching techniques.
The one social network I never in a million years thought I would have is a Twitter account so I could tweet. Yup you guessed it, hahah, @aedmondsauthor . I caved and yes this old broad tweets and Retweets.
Now I don't know if I actually need all of these websites but if I am asked to provide my URL's I have them. I can tweet each day and be happy about that too.
I absolutely want readers to read my Erotic Novel; Second Chances Sammy's story, and anything else I decide to put out there. Like my two new WordPress blogs One is sexy, and one is not. Yes I found them all by myself. It seems all that work my hubby did was there all along he just didn't know it.
http://www.sexwannie.wordpress.com/ and http://www.perceptionofannie.wordpress.com/
My heart and parts of my real life are in Sammy's story. Without the S&M and certainly without the millionaire. And my sexy blog puts it all out there for the world to see. I love helping others with relationships. And if talking about sex and sexy stuff helps someone than I'm happy to put it all out there.
So now I promote my first book while I try and write my second. And at least I know when this book is finished, that I will have no problem posting it on every page that has my name on it.
I am a proud indie who writes erotic romance and I certainly have the URL's to prove it.
So now you know how you can find my debut novel. All I am asking is that you read the sample which is at every distributor I can think of.. You have nothing to lose, and it might even give your relationship a kick start or spark.. wink, wink..
Amazon e-books, http://www.amazon.com/Second-Chances-Sammys-story-Edmonds-ebook/dp/B00EB3FJ6M/ref=. Use the one up top for my amazon author page, it brings you to the book if you just scroll down.
I can't understand why some URL's light up and some don't.
