“If writing and publishing a book is like giving birth to a child,
then book marketing is like rearing it.”
I don’t know if you have kids, but I have 4... I can say with confidence that giving birth was the easy part. Just like writing my books. Yes, they all took lots of time, effort, and, well, work. But compared to the time, effort and stress that I've put into rearing them, well, the writing/ editing/ publishing process was nothing. Just like with parenting, book marketing is never ending. It takes patience and persistence – and a lot of love.
Consider publishing your book in an additional platform. If you already have it published on Kindle and in paperback, why not consider Smashwords, or even directly publishing to Nook or the iBook store?
