Writing is hard work. A clear sentence is no accident. Very few sentences come out right the first time, or even the third time. Remember this in moments of despair. If you find that writing is hard, it’s because it is hard. -William Zinsser, "On Writing Well"

While I understand that every author is different, what you are saying is pretty much exactly what Zinsser is refuting in the opening pages of "On Writing Well". Personally, while writing is indeed a labor of love, it is still labor.

Some ideas for you, +Rob Robideau:

--Look for ezine publishers whose target audience is the same as yours. Offer a list of tips from the book, in exchange for a link where readers can grab a free copy.

--Look at the wide variety of LinkedIn groups.

--Find a moderator on Google+ or someone whose target audience is yours. Offer to be a guest on a Hangout and answer questions about your topic.

--Don't forget podcasters! They have their own universe, it seems. Pitch yourself to a podcaster whose target audience is also your own. Offer to share tips.

--Check out The Future of Ink blog, published by +Denise Wakeman and +Ellen Britt. They have a wide variety of articles for digital publishers. Go to http://www.TheFutureofInk.com.   

Hope this helps.

Great offline Nepali dictionary app for Android. I use it all the time and the English-to-Nepali search works fairly well, even with roman alphabet searches. Highly recommended!
