Publish my book recommendations for new and known authors? Consider Your Book Cover Design Carefully: Your book cover design is an important tool for marketing your book to readers. With great print quality and a good cover design, no one will be able to tell your self-published book from one that’s published by a major traditional publisher. It’s good to educate yourself on what makes a good book cover design, but if you aren’t a designer by trade, it’s also best to hire a professional.
Instruct how to purchase more books: Add a short form to the back of the book, or a few lines on the copyright page with payment and contact information will make it easy for buyers to purchase additional copies. Join self-publishing organizations: Why reinvent the wheel? New authors or publishers can learn from fellow publishers to make the process easier. You’ll find more information about distribution and wholesale services with organizations like Independent Book Publishers Association IBPA, or The Association of Publishers for Special Sales.
Write a lot, now. As Hugh Howey, author of the best-selling Wool series, explainedone of his self-publishing tips in a post on his website, he didn’t get to work right away promoting his first book once it was published. Instead, he just wrote more and more: This is going to sound strange, but you are MUCH better off with your 10th work exploding than your 1st work. You’ll never have quiet time to crank out quality material ever again. And when your backlist matches the growth of your first breakout, you’ll do very well for yourself. Be patient. It’s been said by many others, but I’ll repeat it here: self-publishing is a marathon, not a sprint.
