Tip 1: Join the community.
You do not live in a bubble. Writing can feel like a solitary endeavor, but marketing is absolutely not. If you want to sell books, you can’t expect to just tell people to buy your book and have them give you money. Instead, approach the book world like a community—and join it. Show up to book signings at your local bookstore. Join writing groups and organizations, and volunteer your time or participate in programming. Get online and contribute to the conversations—don’t just shout at the world to buy your book, join the community. People don’t want an advertisement, but they’re happy to support community members.
