This is the first website I am trying in my attempt to market my book. The Indie Book Lounge.
It's free unless you want special advertising.
I created an account, filled basic information, like my name, my website, my facebook author page, twitter (although I don't have that) and something called LMUPG (which stands for Look Me Up On Google - a service to create an online presence... I don't have that either).
Then it asks for a profile picture and an author description.
When you're done with the basics it will ask you to start uploading book information.
Basically you just type the name and Kindle address, Nook address, paperback address, and other sales address.
You choose if your book is Free, costs less than one dollar (or just leave that part blank if it's over a dollar).
You will type a description of your book and upload a cover picture.
Then you mark it as "active" and your done.
If I look for my book title on the search field, it looks like this:
There you can see my book as a "Bargain" book because it costs $0.99. If it were free it would have that red "Free" symbol and if it has nothing then it means it is over a dollar.
This website also has a paid advertising plan.
It is vary basic, with $4 advertising for one day, $10 for three days and $20 for one week.
I think I will see how sales increase (or if they increase at all) before spending any money in ads. I know Kindle also has an advertising program and, if I am thinking about spending money on this, my first try would probably be amazon directly first.
We'll see how it works!
I will update this post when I have more information - If I ever do ;)
