If you've published a book with a POD publisher, half the work is done. Now you have to market your books and that is just as important as writing and publishing a book.
Maybe you've paid for the 25,000 online bookstore promotion package. OK, cool your in the data base, along with millions of other author's and books. Maybe you've paid for the national and international promotions package. That's great, now your again among the millions and millions of online books.
Have you Googled your books title, or maybe your name and found that your book is found on the search engines? That's great, however in all honesty does anyone other than you, your publisher and a few friends know the name of your book or who you are? Let's be honest, if your a first time author or a unknown author, who's going to search for your book by it's title or your name as the author?
As a author, you must market yourself and your book. That's where having a author media site becomes your starting point. You can showcase your book, a description of your book, your author description, some interesting things about yourself, share important links and share your contact information and where and how book lovers can order your book.
Provided that you can order your books from your publisher at a author's discount. Then you can sell them right from your authors site and the profits by far exceed royalties.
Your author's media site becomes your online worldwide business card. It is where people can find you, read about your book, you as the author, about local book signings and whatever other interesting information and content you provide. Without your own personal website, or authors blog, your just another book and author among the millions and millions found online.
Some author's join every book club they can find, sign every guest book they can and join other author communities hoping that this will bring book sales. However, in the end, this usually proves to be a lot of work with very little results.
