Book Giveaway Feb 8 - 15: You have a chance to win a Self-Help book, Marketing Your Book on a Budget. To enter the contest, make a comment about the interview. Paperback: U.S. and Canada.
Kathryn loves the idea of finding all of the information for marketing in just one book. When she began marketing in 2002, papers were scattered everywhere - it was hard for her to find the marketing information she needed. Today, at her husband's request, she puts out a newly updated marketing book for herself and for other authors screaming for a little order in their lives. She loves reading, taking walks and spending time at the beach - a hard to reach venture in Utah where mountains are the rule.
Welcome back to my blog, Kathryn. This is an updated book for authors. Please tell us about your book.
Marketing Your Book on a Budget is a hands-on resource for authors needing to get a handle on reviews, blog interviews, free advertising, book trailers, and more. I update the book in January and weed out and add new great places to market for the new year.
What is the best advice you can give an author?
Stick to it. You won't know everything in the beginning. Don't expect to, but keep an open mind and learn through trial and error what works and what doesn't. Marketing is the hard thing that comes after writing a book, but it doesn't have to be overwhelming or cost you loads of money to do right.
Did you use your own experiences for this book or add some from other authors?
Because this book is my experience only, everything has been tried out by me. If an avenue of marketing hasn't worked for me, I don't include it in the book.
Where can my readers find you online?
Authors can find me at: http://www.ariverofstones.com or at my place of business: http://www.ideacreationspress.com. Right now we have our first ever novel writing contest going! There is no entry fee and two winners will get free editing and their book published with Idea Creations Press!
Thank you so much, Kathryn, for this wonderful interview. I hope many authors will take advantage of this book and learn from it.
