Writing and publishing digital or printed books is one slice of the reader market pie. There's another platform.

 

Audiobooks.

 

Many like to listen instead of read. I have several friends that have vision trouble. The audio version of your book would be a big help for those people.

 

ACX is a network where narrators and producers can meet authors who want their work released as audiobooks. It's easy to get set up. ACX will pull your details off Amazing and you can get started.

 

How does it work? You can do it yourself if you have the right equipment. A dinky microphone from Office Max won't cut it. The other choice is to hire a professional. It may cost you some bucks, so be prepared to pay. You can choose to pay a royalty share to cut the upfront cost.

 

Read the entire article, and head over to ACX to see if this platform will work for your book.

Joel Friedlander suggests to pick a fight or rant. In my experience "making mistakes" is likely to attract attention too. Everyone likes to be an editor, and not merely in the writers' world. 
I'm going to have the grandfather I never knew tell readers how to. How to what? Whatever. TTYL keep your ear to the ground.

There are several great ideas in this article for more traffic to your blog. Content curation is on the list. No surprise there.

Pick one or two to test and see if your readership picks up. It's worth a try.
