(This is #13 of my How To Publish An eBook thang)
All of these pages are a work in progress and they vary in quality and completeness based on when I put them together. I tried the hardest to get http://findingtime.poling.info/ to look best, but even then I can point out things I haven't gotten around to doing. In this last page, I hired a designer and then began tweaking what she made.
- selling a copy of your book,
- signing up for a newsletter,
- engaging in an online discussion group,
- contacting you with fan mail, etc.
This is getting into the idea of an author's platform, and when you're self-publishing, you are 100% responsible for making that author's platform as good as you can make it.
Am I an expert in all of this? No. Are there others out there who can do a better job of setting you on the right path? Probably. I'm not trying to do anything more than make you aware of what you need to do and it's up to you to figure out how to best make it happen.
