When I wrote about debut iUniverse author, Douglas Gardham, back in September last year, I said he had set a big challenge for himself with his career change from mechanical engineer to fully fledged novelist.
Toronto based Douglas got off to a great start with a number of reviews for his novel, The Actor, however it has really been his own relentless book marketing efforts that have gained him recognition and a substantial following.
From TV and radio interviews, newspaper coverage, book videos, to using the full gamut of social media, including gathering nearly 15,000 Twitter followers; and seemingly a never ending round of book signings. Douglas has really embraced the self-publishing ethos and effective book marketing. To learn more about Douglas and where you can join him at one of his book signings, please visit his Blog or check him out on his social media.
