Matthew 17:20, my favorite verse. "... If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."

Teaming Up

As a self-pulbished author, it's your expenses that pay for advertising should you choose to. But there are alternatives to the traditional route of getting your work in front of other readers.

I have a writing friend, Mildred Colvin, that suggested we advertise for one another's book in the back of our books. Which means, for every book that sells for either of us, we're both getting free advertisement.

Another helpful way to promote yourself for free when working with another writer is something, again, Mildred opened my eyes to. A few months ago she suggested to Inspired Reads that they advertise my first book, Abandoned Hearts. They finally did just two days ago. That free advertisement brought over 300 sells that evening alone! I had never heard of this website that is devoted to advertising inexpensive inspirational reads. Of course, I got on the site and suggested they advertise Mildred Colvin's books.

There are a lot of free advertisment opportunities you can find through google. But working with a friend on this will be to your advantage. Then the site you're contacting sees your suggestion for your friend as coming from an interested reader, not someone self-promoting themselves who's work may or may not be any good.
