As an author today, you know that every reader is valuable. You love your readers; you want to keep the ones who are loyal and reach new ones. That’s what promotion and growing a business is all about – reaching new consumers.

That’s why it’s so important for authors to be as accessible to readers as possible.The easier a reader can find you and buy your books, the easier it will be to reach wider audiences.

  2. Nice one. Even the first part of the post tells me something valuable, and I appreciate it. This is an important reminder to engage with everyone who cares enough to comment on my blog, till I have so many that I can’t respond to them all – which will take a while.

    1. Yes engagement is important. I thought the point about having an alternative method for readers to pay for your book when hand selling was a good point too.

  3. This is great advice. I’ll be doing face-to-face events soon, so I do need to make sure my square thingee works or to download the PayPal app on my phone. Thanks Lynette.

    1. The point about having more than one way for readers to pay for our books was a good point because once the reader leaves the venue, if they haven’t purchased our book, there’s a good chance that they won’t. By the way, do you know about the Tampa Indie Convention that’s coming up July 2017? Here’s the link, if you’re interested. Sounds like a good venue for your book. https://tampaindieauthorbookconvention.wordpress.com/2016/09/07/our-venue-is-now-secured/
