BookGoodies host Deborah Carney interviews author Stacy Juba about publishing as a teen by a big publishing house, and later with a smaller publishing label and eventually independently publishing. We also discussed collaborative book promoting and KDP Select vs expanding to other ebook platforms. There is also a discussion about whether we want children reading ebooks or staying with print books. Would enjoy your comments on that issue as well!
Here is a short bio from her site, you can read the longer version here:
Although Stacy Juba specializes in writing adult novels, she has also authored books for children and young adults – she pursues whatever story ideas won’t leave her alone. Stacy’s titles include the mystery novels Twenty-Five Years Ago Today and Sink or Swim, the mystery short story Laundry Day, the children’s picture books The Flag Keeper, Victoria Rose and the Big Bad Noise, and the Teddy Bear Town Children’s E-Book Bundle (Three Complete Picture Books), and the young adult novels Face-Off and Dark Before Dawn. She is a former journalist with more than a dozen writing awards to her credit and is currently working on a contemporary fiction/romantic comedy novel, as well as a new mystery novel. Many of her titles have appeared as #1 on various Amazon Kindle Top 100 lists.
Why should affiliates care about book authors? Marketing. They are learning to market themselves just as affiliates market others. Plus many affiliates should be considering publishing books, and the collaborative promotions that authors are doing something affiliates might want to consider. Form collaborative groups that can promote without competing. And of course, if you are an Amazon affiliate, our podcasts can lead you to new authors that you can promote and be a part of their success by creating a best seller 🙂
