Have You Published A Book

If you are an avid reader of my blog then you already know that I wrote a book.  

Terror In The North Tower came from my background as a respiratory therapist.  This is a suspenseful fictional thriller with more twist than Grey’s Anatomy . 
The Challenge To Edit And Publish

After much searching, phone calls and email I was starting to realize publishing wasn’t going to be so easy.  Through the Power Affiliate Club I met Monna Ellithorpe.  Known as The Blue Jean Writer, she helps other author’s edit and publish wonderful works of words.

Once she was done with editing and I approved it we set out sites on self publishing through Amazon.

Purchase Terror In The North Tower here.

Publishing hasn’t come without it’s challenges. 

1. Marketing – self marketing is hard work .  Researching places that may or may not put your book in their businesses . 

2. Social Media – getting the word out on social media is a time saber and huge benefit.  According to Search engine land

Social media marketing refers to the process of gaining traffic or attention through social media sites.

 The Hubspot shows marketing statistics

  • Using this blog is one way of using social media.  Your reading this post right now.  Is it making you think?
  • Lastly blogging

Blogging gives the writer a chance to express themselves, showcases thoughts and ideas .  Yes I’ve published my first book and I’m working hard to market it.
