QUESTION: How does a writer make marketing their stories easier on
themselves?
Question provided by affiliate author LP Robinson

The only way I can make marketing easier for myself is to hire a PR person, an agent, and a ghost writer. Obviously not in that order. lol

About lprobinson64

I have been writing short stories for 25 years and am now working on my first novel. Besides writing, I love to read a great variety of genres with crime/mystery/fantasy being at the top. Dean Koontz is my favorite author, but there are so many more I can't list them all. I also like to crochet, sew, and do many kinds of crafts. Being a retired school teacher sure helps me find the time for all my favorite activities. Can't understand why people don't like retirement. It is a good time to follow a new dream.

    Hello, fellow Bloghopper. It’s nice to be back and I would love to be able to afford the things you listed, in the meantime, I market the best I can and find the most entertaining way to do it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I wonder if ghost writing could work? Then someone else would have to do all the markeing. It’s a thought. Nah, I like seeing my name on the book cover too much. ๐Ÿ™‚

      But wouldn’t your name appear on the cover and not the ghost writer’s name? since ghost denotes invisibility. however, i was thinking along the lines of writing the first draft and turning it over to someone else to dress it up. I’d still be the author, and i wouldn’t have to go through all that editing myself. I could be working on a new story instead of editing. marketing would have to be turned over to the PR person and an agent i think.
