The more books you write, the more you’ll sell. Generally speaking, don’t devote yourself solely to promoting a single book for months on end. Promote it a lot during the first few weeks after its release but then taper off to just one effort a day as you dedicate the bulk of your time to writing the next book. Sales of your first book will go up with the publication of your second one. Before the “7 Minutes a Day…” series, I wrote four books, and inevitably each boosted sales of the ones published before it. In fact, if doing a countdown of which of my books have sold the most copies, it would correlate perfectly with how many weeks it’s be available for sale…often the longer the book has been out, the higher the sales.
My name is Rob Bignell. I’m an affordable, professional editor who runs Inventing Reality Editing Service, which meets the manuscript needs of writers both new and published. I also offer a variety of self-publishing services. During the past decade, I’ve helped more than 300 novelists and nonfiction authors obtain their publishing dreams at reasonable prices. I’m also the author of the 7 Minutes a Day… writing guidebooks, four nonfiction hiking guidebook series, and the literary novel Windmill. Several of my short stories in the literary and science fiction genres also have been published.
