For self-publishing, how much promoting do you have to do?

I am almost done with my book, I just have to add the finishing touches. I am planning on editing my book for about a month or two,if I think about finding an agent. If not, I want to take the self-publishing process into consideration. And before I decided I want to find out more information regarding it since this is my first book.
So my first question is how much promoting comes with self-publishing?
Thanks and I appreciate your advice.

Promoting is incredibly important no matter how good the content is. The publisher generally does most of this promoting. If you self-publish this means you.

Many self-publishers believe that if a book is listed on a self publishers store front it will enjoy good sales if it’s a good book. Not so. Even a good book listed on Amazon will not sell if nobody knows about it. You need to drive people there.

What this takes depends on your expectations, the nature of the book and it’s market. If your book is an historical account of your town, your only promotion might be convincing a few local retailers to carry it and doing a few signings with them. If on the other hand your book is fiction or anything else with a broad audience, promoting it adequately becomes very difficult. A few fiction authors have been successful choosing to self publish, but it’s really rare.

This is the very reason, most successful self publishers are those writing to niche audiences who define success as reaching that audience, not by becoming a best selling author. If this is you and you know how to do layout, editing, and have the appropriate software to do it as well as the ability to market your book, self publishing might be for you. Otherwise traditional publishing is the way to go.

Where can I find a good free blogging site?

I don’t really like livejournal or xanga. I already have both of those. I was going to try deadjournal because I read on here that it was really good, but I don’t want to have to pay for it and you have to have an invite code to get in free. Does anybody have an invite code they could give me, or a suggestion on another free blogging website I could try? Any information would be helpful.

Is there a place I can post a story I am writing online and have it read and commented on by others?

I’m looking for a place to post a novel I am writing online and have it read and possibly critiqued by others. It is not fanfiction. Does anyone know a site that does this?

There is certainly a place for your story. Try thewritersblok.net or go to rmbyrne@bloks.net. Here you will find tips to assist you to write a number of disciplines, as well as access to other users stories, poems, essays etc. Publishers have been known to access this site for work to publish. Make sure you have your story presented as well as possible with accurate punctuation, grammer, tense etc. Good luck! rustyR

Is there a mass market publishing company online (how Lulu.com is a print on demand publishing company)?

I want to look into mass market instead of POD and I’m wondering is there a company online that does it? And you can do it right from your computer like Lulu. Thank you.

No there isn’t, unless you want to pay for a lot of copies of the book up front, any self publisher is going to be basically POD. I just read an article yesterday in a local newspaper about a local housewife who mortgaged her house and spent 60 THOUSAND dollars publishing and marketing her own children’s book. A year later, she hasn’t made back one tenth of her money and hasn’t even covered the interest on the mortgage. A mass market situation would leave YOU to promote, sell and distribute the books yourself. It is a black hole, as this lady would tell you.
At least with POD, you don’t have that huge layout of money.

This is my advice for all writers considering vanity publishing – and let’s call it what it truly is – vanity publishing. If you believe in yourself and your book, you owe the two of you (you and the book) at least a year to 18 months trying traditional publishing before you give up and go vanity. The average vanity published book sells 100 copies or less. Don’t you think your work deserves more than that? Spend some time at the library with Literary Marketplace and give the traditional world a try before you give up and enter the black hole of vanity publishing. Pax- C
