Thread: What am I doing wrong?

  1. #21
    Just wondering, for you self-publishers--what about getting shorter pieces published in lit mags or journals? Seems to me like it would be a good way to gain exposure, get a publication record to show you're a decent writer. And it's not impossibly difficult; if you look around you can find journals with fairly high acceptance rates. Might be worth a shot, anyway.

    I agree, and there is also the option of self-publishing short stories too. - Regardless of where I publish the novel I finished yesterday (weeks and months of editing still to face) I intend to throw one or two sub ten thousand words stories at the public for free. - IF they read and dislike, then at least they won't have to suffer the indignity of a speculative purchase of a novel by me. If they do enjoy my words, well then they may be feel more amenable to purchasing from me.

    On my ninth novel, and I think I'm just starting to get the hang of this writing thing...

    Self-promotion: a necessary tool for those who cannot find others willing to sing their praises.

    Lots of good suggestions and I have one more - forums in the genre you wrote the book in. For example my daughter loves anime and is extremely active on fanfiction.net where she has developed a following over the past year or so. Because these people have seen and enjoyed her writing style they are more likely to purchase her ebook when she is finally finished. I only wish I had tried that with my books
