Writing is easy; Promoting your book is harder

That’s what I’ve been finding out ever since War Remains was published seven months ago. I’ve done everything that was suggested by authors and indie publishers, from setting up a page on Facebook to having its own blog.

Which do you prefer, paperback or eBook?

Are you the type of person that loves to feel a good book in your hands, smell the sweet fragrance of the paper (or in some instances, the musty smell of older books) to dog-ear pages as you go along, or underline and write in the margins? Or, do you prefer the convenience of an […]
