Let's face it, marketing a book on your own can be a little difficult and daunting at times.
You don't want to get "in the face" of too many folks at social networking sites or on your blog by reminding them to buy your book. On one hand, you don't want to be too aggressive to chase people away; on the other hand, you want to post "friendly reminders" from time to time.
Having a great marketing strategy including book signings are par for the course for marketing any book, but when you get right down to it, the best way to market a book, is still word of mouth.
And that's what one of my friends, blog follower and fellow blogger Nye did on her blog over the weekend by mentioning my novel. Whether or not this is going to translate into any actual sales remains to be seen, but her post is another way of spreading the word. Thanks Nye!
