We are still learning the ropes of the self-publishing world. I just discovered that the price of the print version of my book includes a four-color cover. It means I can sell the book for $9.00 (no profit for me) with a full color cover! This might be basic to most Kindle authors but it was news to me. I originally designed a black and white cover page so the book wouldn’t be expensive.
So day 12 of my publishing history and there is no ripple affect after blasting a few hundred emails to our friends. Life is not that easy, eh?
Now my job is to figure out how to market the book. So far, I have:
- Created my Goodreads reader and author pages (still waiting for approval from Goodreads on the author page).
- Created a Facebook page for my publishing company.
- Created this WordPress website.
I watched the video and followed the suggestion from kindlepreneur.com on book promotion sites, but this won’t work if you’ve signed up to be a part of Kindle Select.
Our genmaibooks staff, well, me and Curt, are brainstorming what our next steps will be.
