In all honesty, I am probably the last guy to offer sage like advice on such topics. I am merely a humble first time novelist and is struggling to gain any sales. Luckily I am a well-connected drug dealer so capital isn’t a problem. Although I received a nice 4 star review by blogger on Amazon which I was very pleased with. So besides flaunting this solitary review about on Twitter and Facebook I am still trying to amass some more fans. But in all honesty I couldn’t care about earning money, I would much rather just gain a fanbase who enjoy my book and soon to be series.
What have we learned in summary? Am I a literary hotshot? Nope. Do I have my heart in the right place? 
You betcha. Bring on my nerdy loyal fanbase.
P.S. Just keep slaying social media until somebody bites!

Joe King woke up one day, unsure of where he came from or where he was going. To this day he blindly stumbles through life hoping everything will turn out okay. At some point, he worked as a janitor in a mental health hospital, where he discovered an obscene amount, emphasise obscene, of hair on the carpet of one of the counselling rooms. Naturally, he became convinced that the patient must have been a werewolf, there is simply no other explanation. Not having any silver or dog collars to hand he decided to knock the idea around which snowballed into F.U.B.A.R., his first novel and the first instalment of the series.
When he's not writing, he enjoys reading books and comic books, begrudgingly trying to emulate the fine work of the talented comic book artists, loathing himself, slapping the bass in a rock band, loathing himself a bit more and playing guitar.
