Book Promotion: Just-in-Time Learning

Today I look at applying just-in-time planning to the book promotion process, another way a (former) dayjob has helped with writing.

Those of you who have been following this blog for advice on self-publishing (and if you are, you should really be following someone who knows what they’re talking about instead 😜) have read how I use skills from my dayjob to help with my writing. Now I’m going to reach further back, before my time as an IT consultant, to when I was a student engineer in the automotive industry.

Author Interview: Sari Taurez on Getting Book Reviews for Your Novel

Today, I’m happy to welcome author Sari Taurez to Histories Unfolding for an interview on getting book reviews for a self-published novel.

I was very excited to recently get a hold of Sari’s debut novel, Bubblegum. I’ve been following Sari on social media as she prepared to publish and promote her dystopian Sci-Fi thriller. Since I’m in the process of doing the same for my own book and to blog about it, I thought this would be a great time to learn from Sari’s own experience. Sari was kind enough to take the time to stop by and answer some questions about the whole process of getting book reviews.

The Mystery of the Missing Cover Designer

Indie authors, has this ever happened to you? You’ve scoured the internet and recommendations from other authors, looked through portfolios and finally arrived at a book cover designer that seems perfect for your book. You’ve made contact, their working style fits yours, they seem enthusiastic about the job and everything’s lined up. You’re ready to begin, you send over a design brief. And then… nothing. When you try to get a hold of them, you’re totally ghosted.

This happened to me.
