How to sell your book #how to

And finally – you have got your killer content out there, you’ve got your book uploaded, you’ve got stuff on your site to promoted it, you have got good visuals and let’s say you’re picking up a few hundred, maybe even a few thousand, a week – great, that’s brilliant but now you’ve got to maintain that. You can’t just drop off and this is where you get to the stage that writing starts to become your job, even if it is still isn’t earning you enough money to live comfortably on.
