There’s this thing lurking in the author community. It’s a little bit of misinformation. Not the malicious or deviant kind. In fact, most of the time it’s given with the best of intentions. However, it’s still not accurate.
One the most common questions I get as a book marketer is “When should I start marketing?” and the normal answer, others like to give is “When the book is done.”. That makes a lot of sense and takes a load off the people who hate marketing anyway but if you want your first book to make a splash and reach a lot of readers, then that’s a huge mistake. Unless you’re comfortable sitting on it for a few years while you build up your platform.
