SOCIAL MEDIA FOR AUTHORS - WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Posted by Kerry McDuling (Publicious Book Publishing) on 4 August 2016
Many authors who publish via affordable book publishing services underestimate the importance of a presence on social media. In actual fact, this is an important part of your book marketing/publicity strategy. Here is why you need to get tweeting, posting and commenting: Most popular authors have a strong following on their facebook, Instagram, Twitter and even YouTube platforms. This is where they share news and updates about their current and future book launches, tours and signings. Their 'fans' tend to know ahead of time when they have a new book coming out, and thanks to their social media fan base, authors sell a large number of books in pre-sales, before it has been even published.  Global Book/ Ebook Distribution and Print On Demand services (organised for you by your affordable book publishing service) allow authors to easily sell their book/s to people all around the World. Social media will reach people everywhere, so you can gather a globa...

Author Success Seldom Defined by Sales Figures Alone

Posted by Kerry McDuling (Publicious Book Publishing) on 21 July 2016

As an affordable self publishing service provider, I have worked with authors who have proudly published on a range of various topics from fiction to non-fiction, and from children's books to biographies and professional expert guides on a range of different industries, such as business, health and nutrition. For many of these authors, the goal for self publishing was never to sell trillions of copies of their book. Just knowing that their published Professional quality EBook (or printed book) has made an impact on a handful of people's lives has made the project worth their while. The authors themselves vary too, and hail from a large assortment of different professional and personal backgrounds. Many are first-time authors, cautiously and excitedly entering the world of Global Book and EBook Distribution, whilst others are virtually now experts at reaping the rewards of Print On Demand and affordable self publishing. The great thing is that affordable self pu...

A Manuscript Gathers its Wings

Posted by Kerry McDuling (Publicious Book Publishing) on 4 July 2016

It would be rather fascinating to know exactly how many unfinished books there are around the World, hiding away in a computer file; all those words just waiting to be published and, of course, read!  These manuscripts have not yet made the journey to an affordable book publishing service, as they still waiting patiently in their infancy, for one reason or another. I have no doubt that there would be manuscripts in all forms of incompletion. There will be those that contain nothing more than a few paragraphs, passionately and carefully written one inspiring day. There will be those that actually have very many words and chapters, but no proper structure mainly scattered thoughts and ideas, all fighting for their place in a well structured book. Then, finally, there are those that indeed are complete. These manuscripts may or may not yet have been through a professional or informal process of Manuscript assessments/copy editing/proofreading. However, they are most certai...

NURTURING YOUR FAN BASE THROUGH BLOGS AND SOCIAL MEDIA

Posted by Kerry McDuling (Publicious Book Publishing) on 31 May 2016

Every successful musician has a committed fan base, and this is exactly where he/she immediately goes to sell his music! It is really no different for any aspiring author committed to making a career from Global Book and Ebook Distribution. What kind of difference would it make if you, an author, had a ready-made committed audience who trust you, follow your every move, and are eager to buy from you?  Well, for one thing, as soon as your latest book is launched, all you would need to do is send an email to your "fan club," and you will be more or less guaranteed to collect a healthy number of pre-orders for your book.  Effectively, this fan club are exactly what keep high profile authors (and musicians) so successful. Unless you are some sort of super-human who doesn't require sleep, it's likely that there is always going to be some down time "between drinks". In other words, your books are not very likely to follow one another in v...

Read Our Testimonials

I am very grateful and honoured to have found Publicious. As a first time author, there was SO MUCH to learn, figure out and understand. I know that without the help and support of the Publicious team, I would not have achieved my dream. I contacted a few places last year regarding publishing, but I connected only with Andy, and that's why I chose to engage his services. It turned out to be an exceptional choice, pat myself on the back for that :-)

I asked media personality Ray Weeks about 'Publico'. He thought I was talking about 'Publicious' and said he had heard good reports. That's how I came to meet Andy McDermott. The spectacular cover design was a Publicious masterpiece, my sketches had been redrawn to illustration quality and my photographs inserted. Blitz was launched in good time for the February 19th 2012 Bombing of Darwin Day celebrations.
