Nicholas Rossis blog

Nicholas C. Rossis blogs about all things books, with an emphasis on book marketing. It all started when he published his first book. As all authors, he was hoping for the world to swiftly recognize the brilliance of his work.
That first month, he sold eight copies, all to friends and relatives.
The next one, none.
He then tried some inspired book marketing, including posting on Facebook a rather pensive picture of him with a piece of paper saying, “please buy my book. It’s only $2.99.” Although that
particular post got over 1,000 likes, it generated not a single sale.
Coming from an Internet marketing background, Nicholas then realized he had to get serious with book marketing. Four years and fifteen books later, he has sold enough books to buy a jet, which he keeps in the top drawer of his desk. He shares every new trick he learns on his blog, believing you need to help a hundred people find success before you deserve your own. As he loves books and all things pertaining to them, he also blogs on a number of related topics, like writing tips, news from the world of publishing, and free stories.

Happiness between tails blog

Happiness between tails blog is about:

Arts, Books, Food, Dance, Tail Wagging, Tail Telling

Basically, anything I think people will enjoy reading about.

After I finished writing “Flamenco & the Sitting Cat,” a general fiction novel for adults, I queried high and low for a literary agent and/or a publishing house. 80 queries later have confirmed what any author knows: finding either ain’t easy.

Fortunately, self-publishing gets easier all the time! Best of all, self-publishing doesn’t require agents and traditional publishers.

It does, however, require that I learn to promote my own books. My blog is my exploration of how best to let people sample my writing and sensibility.
