Marketing and Promotion
Marketing and Promotion of your book is quite often the scariest part of self publishing however it’s probably one of the most important aspects in terms of telling the world that you have written a book.
Ideally marketing and promotion is something that needs to start as early on in the process as possible but it’s not always the case. So whether you are planning your marketing campaign before your release or whether you have your book in your hand and wondering what to do next, we can recommend partners who will offer a professional and personal service (a bit like ourselves) and offer packages to cover most budgets and requirements.
