I hope you like or can learn to like blogging, because it will prove to be one of the best things you can do to market your book. One writer said, “Well, it just seems to be the wandering of my mind.” But oh, it’s so much more. It’s a great way to communicate, to share your thoughts with the readers you want. Some people are putting excerpts of their books on their websites and on other venues like Blogger.com.
Another excellent blog to study is this one: Wheatmark.com. You get so much information on self-publishing here. Authors who’ve successfully published with them tell you how they did it, what worked and what didn’t work. I don’t think blogs get much more useful than this.
So, put on your blogging hat and get started. You don’t have to publish your blogs until you’re comfortable with them, but you don’t need to take forever to get comfortable. People know you make mistakes and most are forgiving. Try it. You’ll like it. I promise.
