How To Get People To Your Website

Damn you. You know who I’m talking about. You leave stupid posts on Facebook and Twitter that attempt to deceive me.

Is online marketing hard? Yes. There are many ways to market your novel online. I personally use social media websites to market my novels and that gets tedious.

I exemplify “independent” in every possible way. I have no agent, no publicist, no major publshing house behind me doing the heavy lifting so I can focus on nothing but writing.
