I’ll try not to harp on about the same topic, but the novel’s my big focus right now, and I draw what happens in my life. I hear one effective tactic for self-published authors is to sell their books very cheaply, or for free in order to raise popularity.
My thought on that was to write the short stories (they take time to revise and edit, alright?), as a free sample of my writing people can enjoy. I thought about promoting my book for free at first, but I don’t have a sense of how many people would be interested either way.
On that note, I can tell people are buying the novel…or at least one person is. Without reviews it’s hard to tell, and Amazon will only let me know how many books were sold after a week, so until then I live in suspense! Back to drawing, promoting, and sleeping!
PS: To anyone patient enough to read down this far, do let me know whether I write too much. If you read my book (shameless plug), you can tell I can expound on subjects with verbose commentary for quite some time, but I try not to overwhelm people with text on my blog posts. Like now, for instance.
