Book distribution guides for new and established authors? Be Realistic: The self-publishing revolution has made it so that anyone with a story can publish a book, which resulted in a flood of content on top of all of the books published by traditional publishers each year, which is to say, you most likely won’t sell millions of copies or be a New York Times bestseller, but there are plenty of realistic author goals you can achieve, so be thoughtful about what goals you set for yourself and your book and then put steps in place to achieve them. Success doesn’t happen overnight. It takes dedication and business savvy.
Host an autograph party: Send out invitations and flyers in advance to advertise the release of your book. Arrange speaking engagements: Offer to speak for free as an expert in your field and subject matter, and sell copies of your book afterward. This could be at a local library, community college or coffee house. Enter Competitions: Check out the Writer’s Digest International Self-Publishing Book Awards, (Independent Publisher Book Awards) Ippy Awards or the Ben Franklin Awards sponsored by IBPA, The Independent Book Publisher’s Association.
Keep in touch with your fans. As bestselling writer Bella Andre told DBW (Digital Book World): When I released my first original self-published story (LOVE ME) in July 2010 I took a week and wrote a personal email to everyone who had ever written to me in the previous five years. Almost every one of them wrote back to say, “Wow, I can’t believe you still had my email!” LOVE ME was a sequel to a book that Pocket had put out in 2005 (TAKE ME). For five years readers sent me email asking for the sequel. It was a thrill to finally be able to give it to them.
