It's been an interesting few weeks trying to market my books all by myself. I've been around the block a little over the years and picked up a few tricks, but there's so many things to do and so little time in every day. I wish I knew exactly where to start. My forte is writing, not marketing, and so for every piece of marketing I do it takes me a lot longer than a marketer would take to do it. So the question is, do I hire a publicist to help me, or do I just carry on doing it myself?
It's a big risk to spend the sort of money most publicists want. I would much rather give up a small portion of my royalties for the service. Unfortunately, no one seems to work that way! So, what to do? Well as I try a few things out during the next couple of weeks, I'll report back. Have a great day.
PS - if you're a publicist and you want to try something different, drop me an email: john(at)pauldorset.com
