The #1 question I get asked every day: How do I sell more books?

I get a variation of this email several times a day, and I have collated the best answer in this post: Help! My book isn’t selling. 10 questions to answer honestly if you aren’t making enough sales.

The #2 question I get asked: How do I publish my book?

I’ve written an extensive post on this: How to Publish a Book 101 so go there for the full details. Below is a short version.
Go direct to the ebook publishers if you are able. Amazon KDP for KindleKobo Writing Life, Barnes & Noble PubIt for Nook. Then use a distributor like Smashwords or Bookbaby for the rest of the ebook stores (or you can use them for everything if you want the easy route).
Use print-on-demand if you want a print book. When choosing a company to self-publish with please be careful and check out the company at Preditors & Editors listing which reports on all the scams and companies that will rip you off. Personally, I would recommend Amazon’s own Createspace,LightningSourceBlurb and Lulu.
