Promoting Self Published Books with Short Run Printing

If you are a self-published author, the job of marketing your book is up to you. How do you do this? There are several ways, and you can be successful at it. Short run book printing is becoming an increasingly popular way to share your book with those who can help get the word out.

Locate your readers before you even finish your book. There are so many independent book bloggers out there who read and review books for fun. But, they have loads of followers and lots of credibility. Find them and send them your book.

Being a self-publisher means you are a content producer and a book distributor.  With short run book printing, you can publish your book. But the biggest advantage of short run book printing is that you can publish your book within budget. Short run printing is perfect for getting hard copies of your book out to these book bloggers, book fairs, publicists and reviewers. Short run printing gives talented authors a chance to succeed by giving them an inexpensive and efficient way to get their book out.

Once your book is released, keep on marketing. Communicate frequently with your readers, and meet and speak with potential readers. You never stop marketing your book. Make plans for book signings and fairs. That is the beauty of short run books, if you need more you can order more, from 11 copies to 5000. Only order what you need. If you need to make edits or changes after your book bloggers have read it,that is easier too with short runs.
