Do the words "self-publishing" invoke fear in you? Do you think you must go to a large publishing house or you won't be taken seriously? Are you afraid to take the leap?

 

When you read about the buzz going on at the Romance Writers of America's national conference, I believe your fear could turn to downright giddiness. For the first time ever, editors and agents were wooing authors. The self-pub side of the BALLroom was jammed and buzzing with excitement. Romance is hot in the digital market.

 

Here's the rub: not many are making a ton of money with self-publishing--yet. There is still a bit of a steep learning curve to learning all about the finer aspects of formatting, uploading, and then the dreaded self-marketing. Can one person truly do it all?

 

Here are my thoughts on self-publishing: You can get the darn book written, published, and marketed much faster than waiting on somebody else to notice you and your work. You may find success with it, you may not, but you'll never find out unless you take the first step. Fear has kept many a fine writer in the closet. Feel the fear and do it anyway!

I stumbled across another creative method for indie authors to promote their books. It's called FLIPBOARD, and it's actually a magazine app for iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets. Now this market might be one you want to reach--since Flipboard readers have hit 50 million!

 

You actually have the ability to create your own magazine, to which anyone can subscribe. Now, you'll have to be a bit creative, since people want to learn and don't want to be sold to every minute. Here are some ideas for indie authors depending your writing genre:

 

Flipboard Tip #1 – Create An Enticing TITLE - You want them to click into your magazine (i.e., Hot Flash Updates from a Menopausal Momma)

 

Flipboard Tip #2 – Create An Enticing DESCRIPTION - Again, think like a copywriter (i.e., Enter the manic world of hormones and hot flashes)

 

Flipboard Tip #3 – Pick The Right CATEGORY For Your Magazine - Just as in Amazon, categories are uber important to be found.

 

Flipboard Tip #4 – Be CREATIVE With Your Magazines - You can also include videos, music and photo. You can base your magazine on a character. You can have a collection of pictures of published stories with a similar theme.

 

Remember, you will find readers when you are teaching and being entertaining! Think like there is no box, and let your imagination soar!

Wrap your mind around this: One of the most important factors that traditional publishers use to decide whether to acquire a book is the marketing platform of its author.

 

You’d think that the main reason for approaching a traditional publisher is to reap the benefits of the publisher’s marketing, and you wouldn’t have to bring your own. Life is full of mysteries, and whether you’re working with a traditional publisher or you are an artisanal publisher (a.k.a., “self-publisher”), the potency of your marketing platform can determine your success. There is no scenario under which thousands of social-media followers is not a good thing, so here are 10 social-media tips for authors of any kind....
