Half the year is officially gone and I find it's time for another IWSG post. Every month seems to pass by faster and faster. What is IWSG? Direct from their site:
To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
The theme for this month's Insecure Writer's Support Group is PROMOTION.
As an independent author, I find it harder and harder to figure how where to get the most BANG for my BUCK. My inbox is deluged with offers to advertise, to purchase services to advertise, etc. The names that used to be good are either going under or raising their prices sky high (at least for a mystery author).
What are you doing for promotion and marketing? Do you have an assistant? Do you spend your valuable time using social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.)? Do you wish you could just write the book and have someone else do the marketing? I sure do!
