We are a small press Greek publishing house, made mainly from a team of authors (both non fiction and fiction) but we are very determined. Our books all have some feature that makes them unique- either in terms of scientific research and method or in terms of originality. That is not our own opinion, by the way, but the feedback of those benefitting or enjoying our books.

Trying to cover all the angles, we have tried to ensure the books are refreshing, direly necessary to their intended demographics when it comes to non fiction and with attractive covers.

(I am attaching our fantasy fiction book cover just to demonstrate- and get more feedback on it)

Our biggest challenge? To make the books known enough to sell. We are outsiders in a very closed system here in Greece, so it is very tough for us to make ourselves known and fully available. We also are now striving to make ourselves more known over the Internet.

We would appreciate any pointers and help on that! Thank you!

I am new to this site as well as many of you...Now that the book is written, published...what next (without spending a gazillion dollars). I mentioned on other areas in this site...I took John Kremer's new seminar on internet marketing. It was absolutely fabulous and so informative. If you are computer savvy this is a perfect way to market your book...Imagine all the people you can reach...I just need help in navigation and direction...ANy ideas??? My book..."For Kids 59.99 and Over" carol

Hi everyone, I'm really excited about joining this group as I am a debut author and looking for ideas and information on the best ways for promoting my self published book, In Silence, Discovering Self through Meditation. I invite you to my official author site http://www.in-silence.net and my holistic wellness site http://goldenlightcentre.com . I look forward to reading this site and receiving messages from you.

I'm not an author, but I clerk for the promo dept. at a midsize publishing company. We've been talking a lot lately about how effective some of the personal internet sites are getting for book promotion. Facebook, Myspace, LibraryThing, StumbleUpon, and Diggit. Does everyone use these?

i have a question. has anyone familiar or dealt with publicbookshelf.com? i did a google last night trying to add some more sites where i can promote my book and came across them. at first i thought it was just a showcase/bookstore site and started signing up then realize or caught somewhere in print that they publish and that you were being considered for being published. ( you also get considered for an advance). i filled it out anyways and they just wrote back with an offer of $50.
