Brian Beecher

My name is Brian Beecher, and I am new to this website. I self-published two books and am getting ready to do a third. I actually have five finished stories and am working on a sixth, and looking for ideas on how to do this with the least possible amount of expenditure. Am very wary of the some of the programs I see online as there are so many who seem to be out to take you for everything they can. And the Internet seems to be sending out a lot of confusing energy now.

Brian, I urge you to learn everything you can about the publishing business before proceeding. There are some excellent reference books on this page:

Good luck with your books!

Indeed, using keywords on your article is important. It's great that you said the word effective - overloading your article with keywords would be very counterproductive. It will drag down the quality of your writing, among other things.

Thanks Rohan. It is so obvious when writers try to stuff too many keywords into their articles!

Social media is the most effective way to promote your article. There are lots of people who browse when they are idle. It's just a matter of making your article interesting for your target market.
