Hey indie authors! Are you wondering how to get people to know about your books? If you have seen my Who’s That Indie Author profiles you will know that one of the greatest challenges independent authors have is promoting their books. Why not join the Who’s That Indie Author community?
Here’s the problem: Some writers are so busy writing their books or working at another job they have little time left for promotions. Others are overwhelmed by the opportunities social media offers. And some writers are just uncomfortable putting themselves out there.
Think about some of the great writers. Can you imagine J.D. Salinger tweeting about The Catcher in the Rye? Or Emily Dickinson posting a poem on Facebook? Cormac McCarthy has only granted one interview, ever and that was to Oprah Winfrey. (You can watch that interview here.) He says, “I don’t think it’s good for your head – if you spend a lot of time writing about a book, you probably shouldn’t be talking about it, you should be doing it.” But of course, he has other people promoting his books.
Whether you are uncomfortable with self-promotion or are too busy, Who’s That Indie Author is a great way to tell readers about your books.
