Mission 1 - Lost Lunchboxes

An Exciting Day

As a writer, today was an exciting day for me.  My 4th book in the Secret School Spy Squad series, Mission 4 – Hair-Raising Hair was launched and my first book in the series, Mission 1 – Lost Lunchboxes was featured on Storytime Pup Children’s Book Read Aloud You Tube Channel.

As a self-published author, there is always so much to do.  Writing is the easy bit, though finding time and coming up with new ideas can sometimes be a challenge.  The marketing and promotion, for me, is what takes up most of the time. I guess this is also where I have the steepest learning curve.

Some things to think about when it comes to marketing and promotion are:
– keywords
– categories where your book can be found
– distribution channels
– social media posts – where and when
– paid advertising – Facebooks, Adwords
– press releases – bloggers, news sites
– guest appearances / school talks

Not sure if I have mastered it yet but will let you know how it goes.

If you’d like to check out my new book, it’s available on Amazon.
