Hey, all! As some of you know, I recently published a masterpost on how to name your novel.
However, one reader responded that the post only applied to self-published authors, as publishers would help you come up with a marketable name. When I responded that this, for the most part, was not true, and that authors usually receive minimal marketing help from publishers, they insisted that “publishers would still handle most of it.”
This is a common mentality, but to my knowledge, it can be fatal to a budding author’s career. So I decided now is as good a time as any to create a masterpost of marketing resources for my fellow published authors to-be.
I intend to add to this list as time goes on, but I hope it will be a helpful and handy resource!
