Bogged in a Marketing Mire

It's the end of summer here in Auckland. The historical fiction project is finished (http://goo.gl/zXdRQK) and I'm at a loose end. I've never enjoyed marketing, so I'm putting it off.I know, I know, procrastination is not a good look in an author, but who else actually LOATHES the marketing aspect of self-publishing? The freedom of being able to publish via Kindle and Smashwords etc is wonderful, but the pay-off is the ongoing slog to rally interest in your…See More

"I remember subscribing to the previous manifestation of Authors.com a few years ago. When I published my newest book, I investigated and found that they had metamorphosised into this wonderful site!"

Lisa. welcome aboard, …from The Chuck!
               I write sci-fi novels filled with adventure, mystery, romance, drama, horror, and many more genres all mixed in... Sci-fi for everyone to enjoy. I'm also a published poet. When you have a moment, please check out my Authors page and a few of my videos and blogs I've recently added. Many of my blogs consist of free to read enjoyable sci-fi stories I plan to unite within a book. My newest sci-fi novel: 'They!' Let me know if you'd like to become friends.

The Chuck!

Lisa,

Thanks for becoming  a friend... My novels are also at Amazon Kindle... Also B&N Nook, Smashwords, and many more eBook stores around the world. Although I'm too to busy to submit and maintain all the eBook stores, so I use the E-Novel Shop. This allows me to continue writing, which is what I love to do. I'm currently writing a whole mess of short sci-fi stories. For me, writing short stories is far different than writing a novel. Too many endings! LOL...I just finished 'Monsters Are Among Us' for Halloween... I've been using these short stories to promote my novels and my name as being a sci-fi novelist. 

Thanks...

That's interesting Chuck. Thanks for the E-Novel tip.

 

Hi Lori. Nice to meet you. Isn't it funny how we each find our way to writing? Great that you've found success with the children's books (I've tried children's writing, but I haven't got 'the knack').

 

Cheers,

Lisa.
