After publishing over 600 books with my publishing company CZYK Publishing, I would love to share a few tips with you to promote yourself as an author. The biggest piece of advice I could give new authors if that after you publish your first book to keep going. Try to make a series of books instead of just one. I have done this multiple times with Charlie the Cavalier (Children’s books to teach kids that they are loved), You Are Loved Book Series (Children’s), 50 Things to Know (Non-fiction), and Greater Thana Tourist (Travel books). I have been publishing for 7 years and almost all of our books are on Amazon. These tips are more for beginners but I am sure there is something here for everyone.
I also like to track these links.
Create an Amazon Author Page
When your book is available on Amazon, you can make an Amazon Author page here: https://authorcentral.amazon.com/ Here is my author page as an example: https://www.amazon.com/Lisa-Rusczyk/e/B007MROM4Y. I would like to add a more professional picture. I think you should add a personal story to your bio to connect you to your audience.
After your book is for sale, I will send you a pdf of the finished book with a watermark. You can review it and send it to friends and family. You can use the template below in your email. You can add links to your book too.

Create a Facebook Page
This is where you can connect to your audience. I like to make posts from all different social media here. I also post when there are new blog posts. https://www.facebook.com/LisaRusczykAuthor/
Create a Blog
This is where I make posts to keep me motivated to keep writing. Sometimes I will start a book here and then when I am more motivated I make the blog post into a book. Class on Creating a Blog: http://skl.sh/2nYivch
