Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
In the “I did not see this coming” department, I just learned that I won’t be able to promote Town Father on EReader News Today this month, as I had planned. Declined because there’s no room at the inn.
It’s true, I’ve been hustling BookBub lately to see if I can’t wiggle in and reach a larger audience, but BookBub is exclusive, apparently, and keeps rejecting me. They have far too many naked male torso books to promote to consider giving humble Town Father a shot. (Or Yesterday Road or Occasional Soulmates for that matter.)
But EReader News Today? They’ve never let me down, and I always wind up selling quite a few copies when I list with them.
Does this mean that the book promotion side of things is flooded with so many indie books that an author can never count on getting a listing when she wants or needs it? Is a well thought out marketing strategy now impossible because of sheer glut?
Not sure what to do next, because so many of the other outfits I’ve tried (who shall remain nameless) brought in so few sales that it’s not worth the expense.
Baffling. To think my money’s no good at the most reliable book marketing sites out there.
Anybody got any advice?
