Writing the stories, shooting the book trailer, and even advertising was crazy fun. But still, you do kind of want people to actually read your work.
So, in the video below I'll tell you what I did wrong and hopefully you can avoid making my mistakes. And if you want to skip my rather long-winded video, here are some of the tips really quickly:
1. Instead of thinking, "But I don't need critique partners (CP's) or an editor, I got this!" realize that you don't got it.
Search for CP's to read your work and then hire an editor if you can afford to.
2. Instead of budgeting for just one week of book promotion, think long-term advertising/promoting.
3. Instead of pricing your book at $50, price it at say $5.99 or maybe even $2.99...
4. Instead of rushing through each step of the sometimes messy self publishing process, enjoy it!
