Not the normal thing I’d post here, but I’d like to say a few things about book promotion. This is a necessary part of being an author, along with writing and publishing. Writers tend to go on about writing the most (because it’s more fun) but you can write a masterpiece and no one will read it if you can’t publish and promote it.
In today’s world that means internet promotion. There’s a few choices for that, and here’s my experience with two of them.
Facebook gets an A+ for ease of use and good service. They clearly want my money and provide promotional services with no hassle. I was impressed with how easy it was to use and the responsiveness of the ad team members.
Google gets an F-. They suspended my Ad Sense account with no explanation other than it had “suspicious payments.” I checked with my bank and my credit card was fine, and in fact Google had not even tried to charge it. This is the same card that Facebook took with no complaints.
Keep it in mind if you are ever promoting your own work.
Sorry for the distraction, this is kind of inside-baseball, but I write about writing from time to time.
