Hello my beautiful ones. I hope your Wednesday is treating you well. I’ve seen better hump days, but I’m still alive so I guess we all have something to be grateful for.
I’m actually here to ask a question this time. It’s about advertising, which I am sure you have all noticed I am terrible with. How do you, my fellow authors out here, advertise your works – generally and genre-specifically? I’ve been thinking about taking out print ads in newspapers / literary magazines and the like, I’ve even though about buying ad space on websites, but I have heard that buying an ad on Facebook or (hell forbid that unholy site) Goodreads is a waste of time and money. (Yes, I hate Goodreads. That is probably a whole ‘nother blog post, though.)
So, yes, your opinion? Any and all advice would be greatly welcomed. I have already done the “usual” things. My email signature has my website and banner in it, my website is up-to date, easy to access, and I have my own URL. I have business cards and bookmarks. I have my own FB page and I have a twitter and an instagram, but I need something else, something that will get more publicity.
Thank you, in advance. xxx
