This whole promotion thing when you publish a novel is all new to me, but yet, I've got it down pretty good though! One never knows that there is a whole lot more to writing a novel, then...writing a novel!! It doesn't stop when your manuscript gets published, nope. If you are self publishing no one is going to get your book out there unless you get out there yourself! Post your book on websites, bloggers, tweet it, make sure you have an author website and then post THAT!
I just recently had business cards made for my novel, has my author name, blogger site, and where to purchase my book, but when I was ready to place my order for them, I got a mess of other things I could purchase with my business card logo printed on them! For instance, a cap, stationary, magnetic calendars, notecards, bag tote...etc. It was uncanny! So, I put a paypal button on my Author website and if anyone wants a calendar with my business card on it, they can!
I am so loving this!
Sue Mydliak was born in Flint, Michigan. Came to Illinois when she was a little girl and graduated from Downers Grove South. It wasn't until the book Twilight came out did she develop her interest in writing. It was then in 2011, that her first book, Birthright, was published and made best seller the first week it was out. This lead her to make Birthright into a Trilogy. She has written two other books, Night Games and an anniversary book, Forever, which is Birthright's story, but whose story line is different and geared more for adults. She is currently writing two other books, Eternal and Secrets and has finished illustrating a new children's book, JellyBean Turns Three (see her Children's book website, http://susiebbooks.strikingly.com/)
