Calling all authors—both published and aspiring: We need your help.
Self-publishing has evolved into an effective way to take your story directly to the marketplace. But getting published is only half the battle. Promotion and marketing is the self-published author’s next mountain to climb. This kind of work is often foreign and intimidating for authors. Writers just want to write, right?
Honestly, things can be better, but not without your voice.
How you can help
BookBaby has teamed up with over 15 publishing industry partners to conduct what we believe will be the largest survey in self-publishing history. We’re asking over 1,000,000 writers - including YOU - to share your opinions, experiences, and goals as a self-publishing author.
Our goal is to provide a comprehensive examination of book promotion and marketing by the self-publishing community. We’ll publish the results of this survey in early 2017 in hopes of helping authors make more informed decisions regarding their own promotional strategies.
What you get in return
As a thank you for sharing your experiences, BookBaby and its partners are offering a number of giveaways and promotions, including a chance to win a Complete Self-Publishing Package.
Share your voice today
15-20 minutes is all it takes for you to contribute to the self-publishing industry’s progression and overall improved experience for all self-publishing authors.
Participation is optional. Your survey responses are separate from these promotional opportunities. No other contact information will be requested or retained.
