Here's a great website that gives writers some basic info on how to market themselves as writers. If you are simply putting your books up on Amazon and forgetting about them, everyone else will too! (And yes, I'm guilty of that, too!) You need to make yourself known, get yourself out there, so that your books have a chance to grow in popularity. Check out this website to learn how to start: https://becomeawritertoday.com/marketing-for-writers/

I was looking over this website today and thought it might be useful to our newer authors (and even our established ones.) One that resonated with me was number 39, written by Jessica Strawser, one of the editors of Reader's Digest. She said to "find and grow your tribe" as early as possible. This has always been difficult for me since I'm somewhat of an introvert (although my kids would never believe that, lol!) So many writers are great at the writing part but sit back and wonder what to do once the book is done. If you're like me, you may wish to return to the forum in the future for more on this topic. I'm going to be posting more tips and links in the weeks ahead to help others market their books and grow their tribes. Stay tuned! In the meantime, check out this website and see if some of these don't resonate with you, too! https://jerryjenkins.com/writing-tips/
