Hobbies vs. Jobs

Day 186

~ Philip Dusenberry

Earning a living off our book royalties is like every authors dream – but books don’t sell themselves. I often think of writing books as my hobby or favorite pastime. Yet marketing, that’s my job. Books in and of themselves will rarely make you a dime, the real money comes from marketing them. That’s what brings in the book sales.

Marketing prompt:


Compile a list of media distribution sites and outlets that you will use for book promotion. This will save you both time and money. Don’t forget to include blogs and other author contacts that have hosted or interviewed you previously.
