Help with publicity for my book

https://www.facebook.com/TheRiseOfTheBejemot

I know its a bit to ask but can people please like my page? I like hundreds of pages a week, and it doesn't really do much, but I'm in the process of signing with a big publisher for my series and could really do with the publicity!

Thanks to everybody who actually does, it only takes a second but I'm EXTREMELY grateful

Information on where to read a few chapters is on the page for anybody interested! x

I'll let everyone I don't know how much I care about this by not informing them!

It's a brilliant plan




and don't you make this thread like all the ****ing time?

Pretty sure this qualifies as advertising, but I'm not gonna report you. I'm not gonna like your page either, but your cause seems to be noble enough.

Lmao, cheers mate. Not sure on the rules.. It's not for profit or anything though, the thing isn't even for sale yet, I'm still in late writing stages, but it's just decent to have some coverage, since it's quite a difficult field to get in to.

I made a thread about four months ago to help people see the book, and ironically that's what actually got me my first meeting with a publisher.

So it definitely helped!

I remember that, and I believe we tore you a new one then as well. I think you should've picked up on it at that point.

Reported.

Lol, yeah, but at the end of the day, it's not against the rules, as it was established then, and it's just trying to help myself do something I enjoy.

A cause all we musicians should relate to.

But apparently some of us are just wankers (I.E. you)

Not sure how as a musician I relate to you promoting your facebook page.

If you started a thread asking for tips/advice on promoting a book or for other users' similar experiences, then it would be a different story and something other people could contribute to. You're just shamelessly trying to weasel out some likes on your facebook page.

This is a forum, for discussion. The only discussion it has inspired is about how crappy your threads are.

As a fellow writer, I think you might be helped by the realisation that if your work isn't being noticed, despite your advertising, then it's probably not your advertising system that is at fault (although your FB page is stunningly uninspiring).

In your case it's mostly a tense and grammar issue.

Usually publishers give you attention if you've actually finished writing the book. Or have an agent, which one usually gets after having actually finished writing the book.
