Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How much should I spend a month on advertising?
A. At least $100.00. The number of books competing for readers' attention is increasing exponentially day by day. Therefore, exposure and time are needed to build your brand. You absolutely need reviews. To accomplish that, you need to put your book in the hands of readers.
Q. When can I expect to make a profit?
A. It differs with each project. Some genres are more popular than others, so they typically turn a profit sooner. It takes hard work to ensure your project's success. Remember, this is an investment. Don't expect to break even the first year or maybe even the second. If you are serious about what you have written, it deserves to be read by others.
Q. I have written a trilogy. Do I have to promote all three books?
A. No. Promoting the first book in a series is always the goal. The key is to write a captivating series. If they love book one, they will be eager to read the rest.
Q. I paid another company to publish my book, but my sales have been poor. What should I do?
A. First, you must ask your current publisher for a release. Some vanity press/self-publishing companies will let you use the files you paid for. You would think this a given, but unfortunately, most will not. In either case, It's time to relaunch your book. Do not let someone else control your book's destiny. Yes, it is nice to have someone do everything for you, but trust me, only you can give your project the attention and care it needs to succeed.
