You're writing a book and now you want to tell the world about it.
But how do you get people to talk about it and spread the word for you?
Self-publishing your book can feel overwhelming. I get it.
The first book I published fell flat, no one bought it and no one talked about it.
The big problem was that I wasn't talking about it either.
After writing and publishing the book, marketing it seemed like too much work.
Do you feel the same way?
You know need to start marketing your book, but it's tough and you don't know where to start.
You might be starting from zero or feel like marketing is overwhelming.
