I feel perplexed at the moment, truly uncertain. Most indie authors have thought about this at least once, or not. It could just be me. I’m unsure of just how to promote books –  more specifically – how to promote on social media, or in Facebook groups and then feel like I just want people to buy, buy, and buy some more. I feel like I scream out “Buy my book!” when all I want to do is promote my books one at a time here and there, not everywhere, not every day. I hired two assistants who do a fantastic job, and I love that they are great at what they do, but I shy away from posting overly much on Facebook regarding my books. I hate bugging my personal friends and family on my main page.

My questions to all of you are: Do you feel the same? Maybe you have a secret to share?!?!? Should this even matter to me? Would anyone care to share some sage advice? Thank you for reading my post. Please don’t be offended if you are an author who posts daily in groups. You are comfortable in what you do and I’m not there yet. Thank you for any input.

  1. I’m just as perplexed as you.I have a separate Facebook business page, I’m mindful not to post a lot there. Instagram I try to make it more personal and Twitter is where I kind of push it. I’ve concluded the readers are authors and if we read each others books that’s the best marketing. I belong to a couple groups on Facebook but cant respond as D.L. Finn. That’s great you have two assistants to help you. It’s pretty time consuming work!
