Here at 2QT Publishing we have been gathering a wealth of knowledge, tips and information about all aspects of publishing which we want to share with you. Some has come from authors and professionals from the publishing world and some through our own experiences – and its aimed at authors.
If you have a tip that you would like to share with other authors we would like to hear about it so let us know!
PR and Marketing
When we look at Marketing there is so much information about the ‘what to do’ and ‘what not to do’ you can at times, be so overwhelmed that you just don’t do anything. With more and more people using the Internet to get information and to buy goods it is something that authors need to be able to tap into as much as they can. Whilst we don’t offer marketing as one of our services – we do support our authors as much as we can. As we navigate ourselves around the marketing frenzy, where we discover areas we feel may be of use to the author we would like to pass them on.
Grace Pilkington – Book Publicist – her website explains perfectly what she’s about and her experience and she’s been recommended by one of our authors.
