This week the topic is:

What are the best sites you use for publicity?

I find my WordPress blog very useful in publicising any new books, as it now has over 1500 followers and has between 300 – 700 views every week.  All blogs I write are automatically shared to Goodreads, Twitter and my Facebook author page as well, and so all in all I think WordPress is the best one for me.  My WordPress site is free by the way.

Following in close second come Ingram Spark’s ‘Advance’ catalogue.  Okay, you have to  pay, but in fact I now sell more books via Ingram than I do on Amazon.   Since my books have been with Ingram, I have received an email from the British Library asking me to send them a copy of all my novels and to add them to the Public Lending Rights’ website so that I can receive royalties.  Hopefully more publicity will come via libraries.

I think on the whole it pays to publish via more than one distributor.

My third site to publicise and distribute my books is Draft2Digital.  I don’t sell as many books here as on the other two sites, but this is a site for all my eBooks that are not in Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited programme.

I’m happy with all of them so far.
