Nowadays the Internet dominates books sales. It's worth choosing a title that is web friendly. Originally by second book was going to be called Time's Askew. People are careless with apostrophes and a search for Time's Askew seemed to produce different results to Times Askew. I played safe and settled on Time Askew. It does not sound much but it does make a significant difference to searches.
Before deciding on any of my titles I did searches on the Internet, looking to see if there were any exact matches. If there were none then I had a unique title making it easier to find.
I already had a web site and so I could start adding information. However addresses can get very complicated.
Originally the full address of my Time Askew's pages was http://www.pearlhouse.free-online.co.uk/2-time-askew. It does not trip lightly off the tongue while Facebook, Wordpress and other sites can be just as cumbersome if you're doing an interview so it's worth buying a domain. Originally I bought sjtales.co.uk to point to my web site. I also had an email address email@example.com. When they became available I also purchased sjtales.uk with its own web space. My main email is now firstname.lastname@example.org. At the time of writing, my latest book is The Growing Universe. If you want to know more about it, try tgu.sjtales.uk.
You needn't go as far as me but it takes three clicks to reach Amazon via my web site and you don't have to remember https://www.amazon.co.uk/Growing-Universe-Worlds-Beyond/dp/0995571325/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1493416531&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=the+growing+universe+worlds+beyond.
It takes time for the editor to plough through your book so use it to start building your internet presence.
