Writers are born, but successful writers are entrepreneurs. If you are pursuing traditional publishing you need a platform. Writing is a craft but publishing is a business.

If you are an indie publisher you will want to plan ahead for a book launch. We recommend the Secrets to a Successful Book Launch Toolkit.  

Well worth the small investment. It is at a special discount until Monday June 22nd. Let us know what you think. .

Hi all!

My first novel, a historical fiction story based on true events, is scheduled to release on June 27, 2016. I am currently knee deep in figuring out marketing, and I feel like I'm wandering in the dark a bit. Any advice?

The publisher has asked that I send them a list of potential endorsers and influencers for the book, so I'm trying to put that together, but I don't really know where to start to find the right people. Influencers are easy enough, but endorsers have me a little stressed out. I'm open to any and all advice! Thanks so much!

Paula Pyle, you and I connect on FB. I first met Deborarh and Jeff about 15 years ago. You're a good match.

That is a great idea. By the way, Micro Publishing Media, Inc is in beta testing. Yay. We will be announcing our launch soon. We are looking for niche titles for our many imprints.

Hi Everyone, just wanted to introduce myself to the group. I'm a 20+ year veteran of the media and publishing world, and have been a professional writer most of my life. I hope you'll check out the platform I've built for "authorpreneurs". It's called Bublish. It's the world's only cloud-based, end-to-end publishing system with integrated brand-building, data-gathering and discoverability features. There's a 30-dday free trial, so I hope you'll check it out at Happy to answer any questions you might have. You can also sign up for our free webinars, which focus on marketing and the business of publishing for authors.

I think Net Galley is a fabulous idea if you can shell out for it. I'm very interested in marketing options for the "little guy." Lately, I've been wondering if 3 or 4 authors/publishers could band together to purchase advertising (say a page in a publication) that would showcase each of their books. Possible?
