I'm the author of a middle grade fantasy novel, The Deliverers: Sharky and the Jewel. I published it through Create Space this past November, and it's received great reviews, but it's in a sales slump right now. I'm doing a bunch of stuff to promote it, but I'm not good about tooting my own horn.
I was thinking that there are probably other folks out there in the same boat, and I thought that maybe we could all share ideas and successes/failures. I find that I've been reasonably successful on a local level, but have been challenged to expand awareness beyond "my circle of firends". Has anyone out there been able to achieve this? If so, how? I'm sure there are many who would like to know.
