Here’s the problem many authors face right now:
You don’t know how to cost-effectively get your book out to a wider audience. And you know that the tools and the opportunities exist to do this, because some other authors are getting this right. But that’s not the end of the problem…
What makes this even worse is that you can’t get the attention of potential readers, book bloggers, agents and publishers as well! This means you’ll never see your book being an independent, self-published bestseller, or have a chance of being traditionally published.
Trying to figure out how to make your book go viral—spread rapidly to readers—can be a nightmare. If you’re an author who wants to see your book reach a wide audience, but can’t figure out where to start, here’s the answer you’ve been looking for:
