    My name is Chris and I'm an emerging author in the world of fantasy literature. No, not fantasy erotica, sicko. :) Epic Fantasy. Lord of the Rings, RA Salvatore and Robert Jordan type stuff. If you've never heard of any of those names don't worry about it, all it means is you aren't an uber nerd.

    I won't beat around the bush with a bunch of utterly useless details about myself; I'd rather get straight to the point.

    I've gone the self-publishing route with my first novel (while I wait around the 6-12 months it will take before a publisher decides to gamble on an unknown author.

    I have some internet marketing experience, but not to the extent of some of you fine gentleman.

    -I have a website
    -I have a facebook fanpage
    -I have paperback and eBook available on amazon
    -I am listed on and after my next edit I plan to list on several more
    -The novel has an average rating of 4.5/5 stars
    -The second book in the quintet will be ready by sometime this summer

    So, why am I here?

    Because I know I have a product of value, now I just need to figure out how to appropriately market it. Obviously, getting an email list of members and blasting out to millions isn't the best way to go about it.

    Since everything will be promoting my own name I need to use some tact and elegance in this. Not an all out spamorama.

    However, I do know that it?s possible to have this product bring in a substantial amount of income because I?ve seen other eBook authors rake on products that pale in comparison to mine. If anyone could offer any suggestions or would like to offer me a deal to promote my book and we'll split the profits, I'm all ears! :)
