My First Book Published!

    My first book just got published on Amazon.http://amzn.com/1470099551From the back cover...Business and Technology Integration is about the relationship within companies between business units and the information technology teams that support them. A strong relationship with clear communication can propel any company to greatness. A poor relationship can doom a company to failure. The book in your hands tries to bridge the gap between these two groups and establish a clear line of communication with common sense advice on how information technology teams work and how to work with business units.If anyone is interested in writing a book, I wrote a short blog post about the experience -> http://www.cerebellumstrategies.com/self-publish-createspace/. If you still have questions, you can post here or send me a message. If you think you have a book idea, my advice is to go for it. I walked around with this idea for several years before I finally decided to sti down and write. It is easier than you think.

    The first thing to realize is that most books sell about five copies. I have sold a few more than that, but my goal wasn't to write a best selling novel. I wrote a book about my profession - IT. I wanted to enhance my resume, showcase what I know, and wanted to share my knowledge. I accomplished all of that. What I am trying to say is writing the next Harry Potter series is like winning the lottery. I didn't promote my book as heavily as I could have. Having said that, there are a few things you can do.

    Family and Friends - Tell your family and friends and ask them to buy copies.
    Sell Online - You should try to get an online method of selling your book - Amazon, Itunes, etc.
    Reviews - Where ever you publish, get people to write honest fair reviews of your book.
    Promotion - Post about your book on your website
    Related Articles - write articles that talk about topics in your book and post a link.
    Advertising - Google, Facebook, and Microsoft offer paid advertising with $50 or $100 free to start.

    I am sure there are other ideas. Good Luck!
