Market your book yourself

You need to see yourself as a self-employed business person whether you self-publish or go through a traditional publisher. The publishing industry is terrible about marketing books and always has been. Publishers/Editors don’t know why books don’t do well.

Push with the same attitude whether using a publisher or self publishing.

Publishers expect you to come in with a platform: email list, Facebook fans, etc.,

Don’t expect much editing help from a publisher.
