There are loads of ways one can create a book and it is hard work, but having done so, one is faced with the next seriously big step: marketing.

Some of us write for a specialised market and others cover more general areas; we each have to sell our product and get others to read it.

I know that Tom and Jan and others sell their books quite well, but one finds this process very difficult along with that awful word marketing.

So I suggest we have a Marketing Forum.

Am willing and able to do the research and stay ahead of the game.

Recent moves in the mainstream publishers means that print on demand is now seen as a cost-effective approach for the larger houses to take along with e-Books.

Presume that Rui could find a way of doing that, Tom.

I was wondering whether or not to include publishing within the marketing?

It seems to me that where you publish it is as important as how you get people to buy it.
