As authors we all love to create. We love to write our stories. We work on building the perfect version of our ideas and visions.
We picture the story unfolding and the experience of the reader as they turn each page discovering the next revelation. We write and rewrite, read and develop, and sometimes we scrap the whole thing and start again.
No matter what the genre is that we are writing, no matter how long the process takes, there is one thing we all have to do once it is complete. Marketing! But how much time during this process do you give thought to marketing? Do you have a marketing plan as you are writing your book?
