Marketing comes way before you sell that masterpiece

We like to think of ourselves and writers first and salespeople second. Unfortunately the number of books published has actually increased due to the incredibly low costs of POD and eBook publishing. Getting the attention of agents, publishers and readers has never been easier, or harder.
People read on the internet. Books can be Kindled in a matter of a day. How do we, as authors, get out in front of the pack?
One solution, proposed by the 3by3 writing method is to start your marketing campaign early in the writing stages. This is the time when you are passionate about the work and know it’s selling points because you sold yourself on committing to writing it.
The time to start writing your 50, 100, and 300 word synopsis as well as your agent query letters is during the second draft of you book. ON those slow days when then muse is absent and complicated rewriting process can baffle you, work on these items as well as press releases that do not directly address your book but have some indirect connection. Mentioning that you are working on a book and even the title is the start of your media campaign
The more information you get out, the closer to your publication date the better. (Remember following the 3by3 Writing Method will eventually get your book published, either by a traditional publisher, or you’re working the POD or eBook process.)
