Michael asked Bob Mayer:

Hey Bob, I really appreciate your take on the changes in the publishing landscape, for a new author what piece (or pieces) of advice would you give to someone regarding how to get their book "out there."

Bob Mayer Content and more content. With one book you're pretty much lost in the wilderness. I'd suggest writing a novel and then several shorts in the same series. The more titles you have the more of a footprint you can make. Even in traditional publishing we always dealt in series rather than a standalone book.
