It’s very difficult to get books out in distribution, but keep using Facebook and blogging. Read other people’s blogs and add comments – generally get ‘seen’ in the blogging world, and in the writing world. Go to book launches in your city (if you are in the a city), talk to other authors and build up your profile. Join your state’s Writers Centre and go to seminars and social things they run (if they do). Join Pass It On, a weekly industry newsletter for writers of Children’s and Young Adult books. You can google that to find the link. And good luck!
Hi Sheryl, I am a new author my book The Sapphire’s Promise has just been released. I am a children’s author, also Australian hoping for help in promoting my book. I have a facebook page and a blog under my pen name. I am currently editing my second book. My blog is http://marnielester.blogspot.com/ and my facebook page is under Marnie Lester using my gmail address. The above website was set up by my publisher and gives direct access to my book. Thank you for any assistance.
