Some of these links might lead to articles with some dead-links, others might overlap… however, links leading to places where you can promote your book for free or little cost are valuable. When it comes to promotion, the best way to do it is ‘constantly’. Indie authors can’t afford blitzes and struggle to compete with the big names. If your book is seen often enough (the current rule of thumb is ‘seven impressions’ leads to investigation and potential sales) then every little bit helps.
Note: the following links are resources themselves. That makes this list a resource of resources, I suppose.
