It is good you use proofreaders and editors to Polish your writing before publishing it. This will enhance its value and sales potential.

Although, if you have a well developed proofreading and editing skills, you can do it yourself. In that case, set the manuscript aside for some time before going back to it to proofread and edit it. You can do this for like three different occasions before getting the final required output.

If you published books through Amazon KDP, I do want to inform you that you can now delete an unpublished book from your Bookshelf. This will help cleanup your bookshelf.

It is a new feature. To delete an unpunished book, click on the three dots to the right of the "Promote and Advertise" button to access the option list. From there, click on "delete".

If you don't want to publish your books exclusively on Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing, then you can use Draft2Digital to go wide with them to get them distributed to iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Scribd, etc.
Re: WRITING AND BOOK MARKETING RESOURCES AND STRATEGIES by Stevenbright(m): 9:17am On Nov 28, 2017
Continue writing and publishing as many books as possible as that will ensure you get consistent sales since if one book doesn't sell, another will do.
Re: WRITING AND BOOK MARKETING RESOURCES AND STRATEGIES by Stevenbright(m): 9:31am On Dec 01, 2017
Stop looking for publishing agents or publishers, and go independent through Amazon or Draft2Digital if you are targeting foreign audience and Nigeria's OkadaBooks if your are targeting local audience.

It will interest you to know that if you are currently working on any book which you intend to publish through Amazon KDP, it will be advisable to publish it early January or in February. This is because there will be a lot of new Kindle users (those you just got their first Kindle) and hence there will be good chance of sales for even new authors as these set of buyers are more likely to try books from new authors.

One good method you can use to improve your writing is to find and join author or writing forums where you will meet and socialize with other authors.

This will give you the opportunity to ask questions and get relevant responses. You can also get beta readers or accountability partners from such forums.

Some of these media include Facebook book groups, Kboards, and Goodreads.
