I've written 3 books. Not a big number but it's definitely a good start to builiding my virtual backlist.
I've been active on Twitter for awhile and on Facebook, my social media platform is expanding which I hear is basically the key to Indie success.
This is where I struggle the most.
I know the basic rules of self promotion:
1) Don't spam your followers with nothing but promo posts/tweets
2) Promote onto others as you would like done to you
3) Be entertaining and educational in tweets/posts.
But how much is really too much to talk about your book? I've had people tell me that I don't talk about them enough but when I tweet about it more than a couple times a week, I start to feel self-conscious.
Of course I'm thrilled as hell that A Hustler's Promise is sitting at the top of 2 bestseller charts on Amazon and Change of Heart has joined the rankings. But how many times can I say that without my followers thinking "here she goes again. I wish she'd stop bragging."?
