As it so often happens, new writers put the back end work of creating a book to the bottom of the list and then when they need to find freelancers to get the cover art, editing, etc. done, they are behind on the curve.  It takes time to seek a freelancer, follow up on their reviews/recommendations, and finalize the payment arrangements.

to find freelancers

Most freelancers can be found on Indeed.com or Fiverr.com or another of the usual freelance for hire places.  But did you know that companies such as Infinity Author Services also uses freelancers? WE DO~! Sometimes it is imperative that a job be done in a time frame that we are unable to handle, so we will outsource that job and believe me, we have a great team! Our designers, editors, etc. have already been pre-viewed, pre-tested, and pre-approved by writers just like you!

By using IAS, you are getting the freelance work you want without the hassle of having to find freelancers online, vet them, and all the other parts of hiring someone for the work of doing cover art, edits, etc.

Why you do not need to find freelancers any more!

We also have in house employees, so your needs are always covered. You will not be behind one second in the process of getting your book into the media. The only thing that we would like to see happen from you is SUCCESS! And you will definitely be successful if you are not struggling to get your finished work into the world of readers.

Check out our packages and information page or our client testimonials for more info.

Or better yet, if you are just now on the search to find freelancers for your book, drop us a contact form and let us assist you!

There is a significant difference in whether you self-publish, traditionally publish, or DIY your publishing experience. Infinity Author Services will help to get you to the point of pushing publish, but we do NOT publish your book. We are not a publishing company, nor do we do anything in the vein of vanity publishing (which is a bad deal anyway).

We are the PRETTIER side of book creation. We design the cover art, help with your editing, proofing, and formatting. We create eye-catching graphics for your social media, and even do a little promotion for you, as well.

If any of that sounds like what you really want, then leave us a comment, drop a contact form, and let us know how we can better serve you. 

We work hard with a writer’s budget, too. Those pay-for-pages-read pennies you receive have to add up for all the costs it takes to make a book and get it out into the wide-world-web and beyond. You would be better off writing and leave the back-end work to us.

We understand at Infinity Author Services, and we want to help. Go right now over to our packages and information page to see what we offer. Let us know what you need and let us give you a quote.

Now on to this blog post… TWO THINGS YOU NEED TODAY

How can I help my book to be seen by readers in such a busy industry?

It’s as obvious as a rock in your shoe that in today’s busy book industry you have to work extra hard to get your book seen by readers. There are many paid opportunities out there including Facebook ads, Amazon ads, and even other social media sites have ad opps now. Have you seen your Instagram feed lately? 

 

But if you are like so many authors out there, you are doing everything on a shoestring and you cannot afford to pay for a lot of ads that may or may not hit the mark.

So what is a writer to do?

We are old-school in this thought on promotions. We believe that you will get a lot of traction for your book with something that few people think about anymore.

Word-of-mouth

Yes, that is it. If you do not agree with this thinking, you may want to check out another one of our blog posts. Try this one: Write what people want to read

Word of mouth advertising also known as referrals from another reader or recommendations from another reader will get a sale before anything else. So, write that book as well as you possibly can, and then hire us to do the rest for you. It needs a knock-out cover designed to your specs. It needs editing within an inch of it’s life. And (more about this below) it needs a little movement in the marketing sector.

But you said, TWO THINGS to help with my book…

Another thing that we believe works for authors in today’s  overloaded book market is to stop SCREAMING SALES on social media.

Now, understand we didn’t say stop  social media. Just stop selling to everyone with every breath. As a consumer, when you are just scrolling through your feed, do you like those ads?  Do you like to see the people you originally found interesting enough to follow – posting BUY ME-BUY THIS posts each time they appear?

Uh Uh. No way, right?

So, why would you want to do that? Just because every one you know is doing that? Ask them how that is working out for them. Because if they are spending money on paid ads, or spending time on screaming sales on social media, then they are likely losing followers and fans, instead of gaining new ones.

Try to post three PERSONAL about YOU types of posts. Or even about the BOOK which is what most readers want to know.

What was that second thing you mentioned?

We believe the second of two things to gain ground in today’s busy marketplace is to WRITE ANOTHER BOOK. Get in that writing chair and do what you do best. And when you need us, Infinity Author Services will be here waiting.

What to write now: How to write what people want to read

 

At some point in the writing life, you will write a  book that is filled with great characters, sizzling plot, and wonderful setting details. A book that you are proud of and put a lot of yourself into. You write it, edit it, and publish it.  But you realize that no matter how much care you took, it isn’t getting read. Don’t fear. This is a common issue.

Every day many books are being published but only a small number of them ever get read.

What is it that makes someone want to read a book, well, not only any book, but YOURS?

How do you write what people want to read?

Number one, straight off is that you have to write something entertaining, You have to either have humor, action, romance, or a story that is so deep and dark, a reader cannot say no to it. For example, try this book: 

    Amazon Affiliate link attached to this link. See privacy policy for details on our use of affiliate links 

 

But even still, this won’t always bring readers.

Why? Because you did something that messed up your shot. One  little item that every new writer makes.

YOU WROTE THE BOOK FOR YOURSELF WITHOUT A READER IN MIND

Now, I know, you have heard it over and over, write what you know. If you build it, they will come. Etc. etc. etc. And I believe those things are true to a point. But a reader needs more than just your writing about something you are familiar with. They want different. They want new. In other words, they want what they want, not what you want to write.

So, how on earth do I know what book to write, what genre to write in?

I’m glad you asked.

It is important to remember that everything is ruled by SEO and keywords these days. Your book is no different. You need to be using keywords in your Amazon listing that are hot items and you will be more successful because PEOPLE WILL FIND YOUR BOOK.

I am happy to say that I found such a tool easily by doing a search for Amazon keyword search tool. It is certainly NOT the only site out there, and Amazon has something very similar on their on ground.

Try this site : https://keywordtool.io/amazon

You are given an array of keywords to use on your Amazon listing page. Go out and see what others in your genre are using! Look at what the bestsellers in your genre have for keywords. Try a few out and see what happens with your ranking. It is a simple thing to do to change your keywords. Be sure to give the new one or two time to travel through the web. 

Let us know how you do!

 

And do not forget, we can also do this keyword search and destroy mission for you-if you are tight on time. It is a part of the mission to help authors write what people want to read.

What should you ask before hiring an editor?

Congrats on finishing your novel. That is a major accomplishment! IA wants to help you make it the best it can be so we are posting here a few things you should ask yourself before contacting us about edits.

Four things you can ask yourself now:
  • Have I let it sit for a while?
  • Does it read like a novel?
  • Does it have a main plot?
  • What do my readers need in this story to get to the end?

Before you hire an editor…

We know you are excited. You JUST wrote THE END. That’s not the time, however, to contact editors about turning this novel into the next bestseller. You should let it sit for a few days. Put it in a drawer. Go play golf. You need to step away from it for a minute or thirty.

THEN when you are sure you are ready – go in and EDIT/REVISE this baby yourself. You do the second draft all on your own and THEN CALL US! We are ready to help you on to the next level!

 

Drop us a contact form below if you are to the point of edits. WE would love to work with you!

Color matters


Book covers should be eye-catching and beautiful. They should explain the genre of the book with the design. An author should love their book cover so much they cannot wait to share it.

At Infinity Author Services, we love to do book covers. We offer off-the-cuff straight out of the box covers for FREE a lot of time. We are looking for authors to say yes, and tell us what they want to make it better. 

This image is FREE to a good home. The design can be tweaked, the typography can be changed to suit the author’s desire.  Book cover colors matter, too. We can change that as well.

By offering covers for free, we can find out what authors are looking for in their book covers. Yes, we are always information-gathering.

Don’t be afraid of free! 

If you would like this cover, or any of our pre-mades-or one designed for your book, drop us a contact form!
