As someone not keen on technology, I’ve been putting off thinking about how to maximise the reach of my books, especially when I publish Keepers early next year. But a friend on Twitter introduced me to the FB group Wide for the Win which is dedicated to helping self-publishing authors do what it says on the tin, ie widen your platforms to access more readers. It means coming off Kindle Unlimited, but that’s fine by me. So I’ve spent a thoroughly fascinating afternoon updating my dormant Smashwords account, looking at Kobo and other platforms and it doesn’t look terribly scary at all! Wish me luck, and if you’re in the same boat, take a look at the FB page. They’re a welcoming bunch of people and they also have a page for rank beginners like me. Let’s see!
