Lilith Sinclair has used both traditional and self-publishing. Find out which marketing techniques work best for her.
1. Tell me briefly about your latest book – what is it about and what motivated you to write it?
My latest release is a short story featured in the anthology A Bond of Words. My story is called Trapped by Design, and it takes place in the same universe as my soon to be published series Sanctuary.
Paranormal is a genre that I have loved since middle school, and character motivation can come in many forms. Trapped by Design is a short story centered around a mother’s love and the willingness she has to keep everyone safe, and shows how the main character, Alex, in Sanctuary comes to the cross-roads she’s at.
2. How have your sales been?
I’ve sold a few copies of ABOW. It’s the first publication under this pen name, so it makes up a small percentage of what I make total. That should change by the summer.
3. You’ve used both self-publishing and traditional publishing. Which do you prefer, and what are the pros and cons of each?
Do I have to make a choice? I find both have their perks such as the ability to focus on one aspect or the ability to make micro adjustments to get something to click.
