Consulting the Oracle

That's how I view it, or in layman's terms: I am seeking advice on self-promotion and advertising. How do I improve the sale of myself? That may not sound right, but you get the point. I'm new to indie-publishing like many of you, and I'm interested to find how you made it. I know the book is not enough without some promotion and advertising; I just don't know how to go about it. Any advice would be appreciated.

Work on the next one continues slow and steady. Developing the sequel is kind of strange, in a good way. Unsure as to how well the first one will do might deter some for a time, but I am compelled to continue telling my story. My only problem is not having the time to devote that I'd love to. All the time apart from family time is my preference, but that is as yet not quite possible. I'll have to make do with the status quo. Perhaps when sales increase...

The day has finally come: I am officially an author as I am now published! Excitement is mixed with apprehension, and sprinkled with a tad of triumphant fist pumping! It's been a journey unlike any I've taken so far. I can tell you it's been worth it, regardless of how well it does; point being that I put my art out there for the world to view. So join me, those who haven't tread those waters; don't test and carefully step in, dive in wholeheartedly and give it your all. Are we not all compelled to tell stories?

Being my first one, I appreciate the fact it may not do well. Sure I'd love to make money from it, but first, I want people to want to read it. Maybe I'll inspire the next best-selling author. There will be those who dislike or even hate it, just as there'll be those who like or love it. Either way, I will learn a lot from this experience. Those who have already published can attest more than I about the experience. What are some of your thoughts?

Here's the link to my first novella:
