Promote or Perish
The cry from the publishing world used to be publish or perish. But with the recent advent of self-publishing that cry has changed to promote or perish. There are so many wonderful books and authors available for readers the question is: How do you stand out from the pack and get readers' attention? It's not easy, especially for those of us not technologically inclined. I've heard some authors say they spend more time promoting than they do writing.
What got me thinking about this subject? Dita Parker's Blog and her post "This ain't a scene, it's an arms race." Be sure to stop by and check out her blog.
In the meantime, what do you think of this subject? What attracts you to a particular book or author?
