I wrote my first book in 2008. I was over the moon with joy, thinking that my story is so grand that I will be a famous author in no time. I tried the conventional way of sending my work to big publishing houses. In those days they demanded written pages with self address envelope. I spend countless hours and pounds in sending those letters. Then the waiting period came. Three to six months I patiently waited for the results. I was destined for a rude awakening and many heart wrenching rejections, with a polite word of “BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME”.
Then my husband suggested that I should self publish my work. I did that. As far as the book printing and cover and getting ISBN’ Number it went well. But I had no marketing skills.My book was as if, it was in a dark room where no one comes. The results were as expected , No sales.
Then some one suggested internet marketing. and I had a little movement in sales. So thank God for the Age of Internet I was able to go on Facebook, Linkedin and e-mails. I manage to sell a few thousand. ISBN: 9781434319326
