buymybook1000Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing if all you had to do to sell your book was to make sure that it was well written? Unfortunately, that is not the case. You must get the word out about your book.

Following are 5 tools you can use to promote your book. You will notice that the first 2 tools focus on engaging your audience, not just hanging a virtual sign up that says, “BUY MY BOOK.” Make sure that your marketing strategy includes elements that engage your potential readers. Your marketing must tell the reader what’s in it for them.
