Successfully Market Your Self-Published Book With Smith Publicity
Whether you call it self-publishing, indie publishing, print-on-demand or hybrid publishing, there is no disputing the fact that authors now have many more options to see their work in print beyond traditional publishing.
Over the last ten years, self-publishing has been “democratized” and evolved from what was stigmatized as an amateurish endeavor to an increasingly accepted and exciting form of publishing. The industry has enjoyed a revolution of popularity and gained credibility via major print media coverage. In fact, it was Smith Publicity that pitched a story about self-publishing to The New York Times, which resulted in a front-page, above-the-fold article. This article is widely considered the seminal media event that turned the tide of the negative perception of self-published books and open doors for self-published authors.
Moreover, Smith Publicity is widely credited with pushing the credibility of self-published book authors to new levels. From many years ago–when we became the very first book marketing company to secure a full-page feature story about a self-published novel in The New York Times, to the ever-evolving book publicity strategies we continually develop for self-published authors–we have earned the reputation as the premier book marketing agency for self-published books. The self-publishing revolution is here, we helped start it, and it is certain to remain a popular and permanent publishing option for authors.

Today, self-publishing is all about providing opportunities to authors whose self-published book might otherwise not see the light of day. The type of book promotion and book marketing strategies Smith Publicity employs make the book-buying public aware of the many high-quality books released through independent publishing. We’ve worked with authors published by virtually every major indie publisher, and developed innovative, cooperative relationships with some of the largest self-publishers.
