Following are some resources that have been helpful to me as an independent author. Enjoy!
In no particular order:
Promote Your Book
- The Fussy Librarian (saner alternative to BookBub!)
- Back to the Basics list of free ebook sites
- PeopleReads.com (dynamic promotion site with affordable pricing)
- Book Graphics (first cover artist I used; has many striking premade images)
- Fantasia Frog Designs (good for both erotic and clean covers)
- GoOnWrite (vast selection of stylish, abstract covers)
- CoverBistro (a new favorite of mine…fresh, affordable covers; good for Young Adult)
- Angela Haddon Book Cover Design (pricey, but she does beautiful premades and custom work)
- WriteIntoPrint (offers what looks like a decent ebook formatting service, plus other features)
- The Mad Reviewer (sci-fi/fantasy focus)
- I personally tried out Cat Skinner at yourbetareader.com and was pleased with the result.
- The Self-Publishing Roundtable (SPRT)(They also organize amazing cross-promotions!) UPDATE: Sadly, these guys have closed up shop. Anyone want to recommend another good podcast? I’ll post it here.
