My philosophy is simple.
Keep your eye on the ball.
Live life as if you mean it.
— Patricia Cornwell, author
Patricia Cornwell, author of the Kay Scarpetta crime novels, offers some great book marketing advice here:
1. Keep your eye on the ball. That means you need to stay focused not only when you are writing your book but also when you are marketing it.
2. Live life as if you mean it. If you want your book to succeed, if you really care about its success, then you need to spend some time actually marketing your book.
Books don’t market themselves. Authors market books. It’s your job to sell your book, to convince other people to buy and read your book.
Start today. And continue to market your book every day. Even a little bit of marketing every day will help your book find more readers.
