Want to increase your Bookbub following by 300-500?

You’ve seen the pitches. Everyone has a “course” or scheme telling struggling authors how to bypass the hard work it takes. Take it from me … a struggling author. And I’m giving the advice for free!

You see, each of those pitches end up with a caveat … buy this program … share your hard work with a total stranger … sign up for this “free” webinar … let someone who does not have your passion for your product pitch it for you.

That’s pretty cynical, I know. There are some very good resources out there to help you publish or promote or market. The problem is if you’re a newbie, chances are you don’t have the resources — sometimes only $19.95, sometimes straddling the $1,000 mark — to get the help needed to publish, promote or market.

That’s where I come in. I will do what I can to help you, guide you and share my experience — all for free. Nada. Zilch. Zero. {You could always buy, borrow, read or review my books, though.}

I am far from a Stephen King, Rick Riordan, Cassandra Clare, Neil Gaiman, James Patterson or Nick Fowler. I can’t even get to my Goodreads ranking. So my expertise may be questionable, but I am willing to help anyone who asks.

I am not particularly versed in SEOs and tags, but I have over 50 years of writing and editing experience. I don’t believe “best sellers” are necessarily best writers, but bought and bartered writers pandered by publishers and publicists. And I always cringe when I see someone boasting they have written 132 books in just three years. Possible? Yes. I’ve written 925 posts in six and a half years.  That’s the equivalent of nine average sized novels — about 500 words at a time. Two books — my novella Heaven Shining Through and my non-fiction inspirational Wisdom From a Father — have been published.

There are many writers who make a living as a writer. But the majority are just squeaking by or writing to an audience of one. Those in the latter categories are who I would like to help. Those are the ones who don’t have the resources to self-promote. Ask me some questions. I’ll do my best to share my experiences with you one on one … just because I want to pay it forward.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Live a life of serenity, not a life of regrets.

    Yes! I’m a self-published author also and I totally get what you are saying! It’s tough out there with lots of promises… for a price. You are an awesome writer. I enjoy your blogs and reviewed your first book. It is a goodread. 😊 I pray this new book jumps off the charts! Blessings to you as you reach out to help others learn the ropes. I had friends who helped to walk me through the process. Now it’s our turn.
