I Am A Self Published Author

Once upon a time, a self-published author had two books published on Amazon. Now the books are just sitting there, languishing, and not being sold. On the one hand, it's nice to be able to bypass the traditional route of sending your manuscript to a publisher only to have them reject it...or not even bother LOOKING at it, at all! On the other hand, self-publishing is frustrating because it is so HARD to get the WORD out about your books!

I suppose the simplest way to get you book in front of people is to get yourself a nice lawsuit started over it. Maybe a story about a President of the USA who was a misogynist egomaniac, who was heavily in debt to a foreign power and surrounded himself with yes men.... Fictional of course. Like that could ever happen.. You get the idea.馃槈
Yes, I should write about an orange monster of a man who, strangely enough, became president!

Maybe I will post a link. I'll think about it. Just...NOT YET!

The problem is that few good writers are good at self-promotion. In fact, many people would never have resorted to writing at all if they'd had strong social skills in the first place.
