There are so many of us now. That’s the wonderful aspect of technology allowing so many more people to be able to create. The Amazon KDP publishing platform allows us to hold a single copy of our printed book. Before the platform existed we would have had to print a large number of books making it impossible for many people.
The success of this method of publishing is fine if you have a large social media following but if you don’t how do you become noticed? I have been contacting beekeeping groups of Facebook and one woman wrote back saying that Busy Bee and the Silent Spring was beautifully written and that she was utterly captivated by it. She added that she would buy the book for her niece. Wonderful words and very inspiring but how do I turn them into multiple sales?
There is also this balance to be considered. How much time do I spend on promoting what I have already written compared to putting down new stories and ideas? Oh well I guess that I will have to keep on slogging away.
