Do You Have What it Takes to Publish and Promote Your Own Book?


Cory Doctorow, BookBaby’s favorite Sci Fi swami, wrote an interesting article for Locus Online called “Why Should Anyone Care?” In it, he talks about assumptions he made before promoting his first self-published book, what the actual self-promotion experience taught him, and how his view of big publishers changed because of it.

Do you know what a publisher does to promote a best-seller? Do you think you have it in you to do the same work on your own behalf? If you’re still unsure, check out Cory’s article HERE.

Looking to self-publish? Let BookBaby help you sell printed books and eBooks on Amazon, Kindle, Barnes & Noble, Nook, Powell’s, Kindle, iPad and more.
