Author to Author with Sue Seabury

It’s time once again to introduce you to another fabulous Author. I’ve recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Sue Seabury. While she can’t pull a VW bus with her eyelids or play The Star Spangled Banner on a nose flute, she does have the amazing talent of putting words in order to make fun stories. I give you: Sue Seabury:

We all know the fun part is writing, but if you want people to buy your buy your books you have to tell the world about your books. Do you have any advice for other authors on how to market their books?
I’m no expert, but marketing is marketing. Give away something people want cheap or free.

Good, simple advice. Now of course we aren’t all born expert marketers. Did you make any marketing mistakes or is there anything you would avoid in future?
I suppose I made them in not doing more research into how to market. I plan to correct that.

Would you or do you use a PR agency?
I do not, but I would consider. As an introvert, marketing is automatically not my forte.

I know that one all too well. Now I like to hide behind my book covers. Do you think that the cover plays an important part in the buying process?
Yes. I believe everyone judges a book by its cover, no matter what they say.

What we say and what we do are very different. With that in mind, what advice would you give to your younger self?
Ignore negativity. It reflects on that person, not you.

Sue Seabury likes exotic travel, good food, and great conversation. Since she doesn’t often get to enjoy any of these things, she makes up stories about them. You can find her stories at Amazon
