You can’t sell what people can’t find. Marketing is a MUST if your goal is to sell books. It’s hard to balance writing and marketing, and many authors I know dislike the marketing side. They just want to write. Unfortunately, if your goal is to sell your books, marketing is a MUST.
If it seems overwhelming keep in mind that you don’t need to do everything at once. Nor is there enough time in the day too. Start slow. Learn about one aspect then once you feel comfortable with it move to the next.
