    Mr. McDuffie,

    askDavid.com is the best site I saw for new ebook writers. TYVM for putting that up. My ebook just came out today.

  • This is a great list for free ways to promote an ebook. I also suggest finding forums and message boards where people gather to talk about books and joining the conversations there. You can find forums/message boards by doing Google searches for keywords such as “discover books,” or more specific keywords depending on your genre, such as “mystery books.” You should participate in discussions there and not only promote your own ebooks so that it doesn’t seem that your only interest is to promote. These places are often communities of active readers/writers who are book lovers and give good feedback.

    Self-promotion alert: I work at Ganxy (ganxy.com) where we provide tools to help authors promote and sell more of their books online, such as through a book Showcase like http://ganxy.com/i/26631. We like to discuss ideas with authors and to answer any questions that they may have. Feel free to email me at lonnie@ganxy.com.


    • Yes, using forums and message boards is a great idea. Most of those types of websites allow you to have a signature which is a good place to put links to your work or website or whatever. The only reason I did not include forums and message boards in the list, except for Amazon’s, is because they can be a time sink like facebook and twitter. Social media and similar things should be included in your marketing plan, but time spent using them must be limited. Otherwise, you will have no time to write. Trust me, I know- I am a recovering social media addict.
