As an indie author, it’s incredibly sad how quickly books get lost in the shuffle without a huge budget for paid advertisements. Most authors don’t have $5,000 to $10,000 to spend on book marketing. That’s why I created a page on Patreon. People can easily support my efforts to write and publish more stories featuring strong females of color.
My fantasy novels are meant to entertain and inspire.
What I love most about Patreon is that it allows for friends and associates who don’t read to support my writing without buying my book. People can make a one-time donation or sign-up to donate a small amount monthly (as low as $1 per month).
While saving up to increase my ad spending budget (Thank you, patrons!), I’ve looked into other ways to introduce my books to readers.
To help gain exposure, I’ve been more active on social media. In the past 60 days, I’ve watched my number of followers grow tremendously. Participating in author challenges on Instagram and Twitter helped a lot by getting me to offer new bookish content daily.
And even more exciting than those numbers …
This Time now has 55+ book reviews on Amazon US and over 75 book reviews in total!
Thank you readers and book bloggers for reading my novel and taking the extra step of posting your thoughts. Book reviews are treasured by inde authors and help with book sales.
