In the Epublishing forum at Inkspot, writers ask questions such as -- how can I get published, which epublishing house should I choose, how can I best promote and market my first novel, etc. The people asking these questions are authors who have written good books, but simply cannot break into the novel markets. Most of these authors prefer to write cross-genre fiction, which the NYC print publishers do not seem to know how to market.
In Practical Tips for Online Authors, I answer these questions and more based on my own experiences. I will also give you dozens of low-cost or no-cost tips on how to promote and market your novel on-line.
