Creative Methods of Book Marketing

Writing a great book and getting it published are just parts of the journey to becoming a successful author.  Making the buying public aware of your book – and getting them to buy it – is the final, and often the hardest, step.  If you were able to get published by a major publishing house, they will most likely shoulder most of that burden.  If you go with a small publisher or self-publishing, as more and more os us are, that task will fall squarely on your shoulders.
