Whether you are in the process of self-publishing or you have already published your book, it is smart to consider the importance of author copies. Author copies are simply copies of your book that you purchase (or receive for free from you self-publishing company). These copies can be used in a variety of ways to help promote your book and platform.

- Selling at events such as book signings or public speaking events
- Promotional giveaways
