Hello, my question is somewhat unusual...I have published my life journey under a pseudonym for obvious reasons if you read it . My book is my adoption journey and features loved ones who are unaware I have used writing as my therapeutic outlet for some years . So my question is (and now I have a very famous fan and reader of my work) I want to catapult my book to the next level now its on the market BUT how can I do this and still remain anonymous? Please dont say I cant as I wont find that especially helpful....Looking for advice as to how I can promote it as my blog already attracts many followers who tell me its a great help and resource to adoptees and adopters alike
Thanks in advance! :lol: :techie-studyingbrown:

Great information. If I had this info before I published I could have saved myself some frustration. Writing was the easy part, publishing-- a bit of a challenge, but marketing is off the chart. Seems authors have to be proactive with time, money, energy and other resources in order to meet the challenges. This is an enormous learning experience for me and I appreciate all these tips.

Thanks for this well informed article Scott. I am currently working on my first fiction novel that I hope to publish in the not so distant future. I know I am getting ahead of myself but I am already thinking about how I should go about publishing the book.

I've been self-publishing for a little over 2 years now and I believe I can say with confidence that it's 95% in the marketing. You don't even have to write well. I reviewed a book by an author who shall remain nameless, who self-published, who managed to get it into the Top 100 on Amazon... the Holy Grail for traditionally published and self-published alike. It was the worst pile of unreadable tosh I've read in a long time, and judging by the reviews, a lot of other people thought so too. Yet other people kept BUYING it!
The only thing I can put it down to is that she had a hella good marketing plan going on.

Thanks for the tips. I'm getting ready to self-publish my first book and will keep these things in mind.
