As an independent author just starting out, it is always good you publish exclusively with Amazon KDP. But as your author brand gets more visibility, you can then decide to go wide with some of your new books.

With respect to the enquiries I received concerning how a self-published author can promote his/her Amazon published books! These are what you can do:

1. Join Facebook "book groups" and market your book through them.

2. Use Amazon Countdown deal or free promotion days.

3. If you are wiling to spend some money, then you can use Facebook Ads, or Book promo websites.

You need to have faith in your writing, and believe in your book. If you don't have faith in your book, how do you expects readers to find it persuasive?

Never access your Amazon KDP account through a public computer like in a cyber cafe. It is better you use your personal devices like a smart phone or computer. This is because if Amazon system traced more than one KDP accounts to a particular device, it will be assumed that an individual is operating more than one account which is against Amazon's terms of service and such accounts will all be terminated.

From the beginning of the conception of a book idea, you must consider the target audience and genre of the book.
Re: Guide On Strategic Book Promotion And Marketing Using Facebook Groups by Stevenbright(m): 7:20am On Jul 11
Always publish your books under two or three different pen names and eventually one of them will really be performing well. You can then put more efforts onto that pen name to get maximum benefits from it.

Still on writing: Let your book research ideas remain at that level and it should only act as a guide to you. Hence, never copy and paste any part of it into your book project.

Author brand is one great thing to build as an author. You can create and maintain an author brand in the following ways:

1. Write a series book which will have a unique and professional covers. The covers for each book in the series should be closely knitted such that readers can easily identify them.

2. If you write stand alone books, make sure they are all in the same line of thought and unify them with a unique but similar covers.

Do you know that since Amazon KDP launched it's print beta platform for paperback (print) book publishing in September of 2016, you can now publish your book both as an eBook (Kindle) and Paperback (print) book through KDP instead of going to CreateSpace for paperback publishing.
