First world problems for writers
Book for sale.....or not
As a writer I have sat down and written what I consider to be an outstanding book. The problem now? Well to be honest I am doing my best at trying to market my book for people to buy. I have it on Amazon, Goodreads and Facebook. I have sold a few and the few to friends mostly who love the book. The problem is, your friends kind of have to tell you they like your book. So moving on.
I have done giveaways and even paid someone to have people read the book and critique them! So here is where I ask all of you. What on earth grabs your attention when you are looking for a book to read. I always need a good cover. I am open to new writers and I think that's where my problem is. I am a new writer that no body has ever heard of. I need your thoughts and Ideas! From one writer to many others. Tell me your secrets, your stories and your speed bumps!
I personally love those books where the person in them speaks to the reader. That's what I have done in my story! She talks to you. She pulls you into her story, she makes you worry non stop about her. You are with her from the beginning until the end in all of her ups and downs. It's like a Roller-coaster of a book! So now how do I get people to read it?
