The Book Marketing Network

For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers

 

Hi there,

 

I am an up and coming author-publisher who believes in the importance of the spoken as well as the written WORD. I am currently in the middle of getting my maiden book published. However, I have ran into some difficulties.

 

I recently tried to open a printing account with Lightning source who have a plant here in the UK where I reside. The problem is their application requirement is very difficult to meet especially considering this is my first time in the industry. I have been asked to provide trade references which unfortunately I do not have.  I have not dealt with any company in the industry apart from the company that is designing the book cover.

 

I was wondering whether anyone has had a similar experience with Lightning source and more importantly, what they did?

Sorry can't help you there. I just write and publish my books. All the publicity I create myself.
Thanks guys. But do you have any tips for an upcoming writer like me when it comes to publicity and marketing?
Same here. I just handle my own publicity, currently. Can't tell you of a good source. I work on promoting myself on facebook and my author website and any media that will run an interview.

Hi there,

 

Thanks once again for your tips. I have recently opened a facebook account. My question is how do I utilise it as a promotional tool?

Have you tried CreateSpace? I have uploaded my client's book there and we have no problem publishing his book.
