What’s the best way to promote your book?

My email is filled with Black Friday Ads. 

But what about your book? Can it be a Black Friday special?

If you’re like me, we are always looking for ways to promote our books. But, I’m learning marketing a book is harder than writing the dang things.

Some ideas I’m knocking around…

  • Kindle Unlimited
  • KDP Free Promotion
  • Goodreads Giveaway
  • Library reading
  • Craft fairs? Hmm, might be a lot of work. But, maybe.

What about you? Any tips to help with book sells?

Have you had success with any special marketing technique?

  1. Thanks Jean, I have used Goodreads Giveaways and I have also given many books away online, and in person. My latest giveaway was based on a world series bet. I have advertised on Facebook, paid for book tour blogs, been fortunate to be interviewed and also be a guest blogger. I post on social media frequently. I try it all- it’s been fun. A few “in person” events. Oh and I am also started using Facebook Love! Best to you!
