New Year’s is looming and resolutions and strategic plans once again come to the forefront of our mind. Writing a book is often a desire, and you may even have your book done or close to it. Surveyed results show that 81% of the population desires to write a book at some point in their lifetime. If you have taken the plunge and are about ready to release your book, this is a good time to create a marketing strategy.
“Self-publishing is becoming one of the fastest and most convenient ways for authors to get their books out into the world,” says Lisa Shultz who wrote and self-published two books in 2010 with her business partner Andrea Costantine.
For those authors who have their book completed and ready to launch, the marketing section of the book How To Bring Your Book To Life This Year is now available for immediate download. Create a buzzzz while building a platform from your book. Learn book launch secrets and how to shoot for best seller status.
The final stages of your marketing plan before launch are critical, but knowing how to sustain attention and publicity is also important. Andrea Costantine and Lisa Shultz share their secrets and experience with you to have a fruitful and prosperous book launch with marketing steps and suggestions that are easy to follow.
In the most recent years traditional publishing has changed dramatically. Agents and publishers are taking on fewer authors, sending more authors to utilize the route of self-publishing. Self-publishing authors retain all of the rights to their work and remain in creative control, which is becoming more desirable with many of today’s authors. Additionally, with the internet and social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, new authors can successfully create a following for their work and market their books without the distribution of a publishing house.
“New authors believe that marketing your book is the hardest part, but essentially it’s the marketing that most authors get stuck on” says Andrea Costantine. “If you want to get your book out into the world, it’s critical to devote your time and energy to marketing it. Unfortunately, books rarely fly off the shelf without the authors dedication to getting the word out about their work.”
There are many resources and sources of information available online regarding writing, publishing and marketing, so the question remains, if you are one of the 81% of the population who says they want to write a book, will you finally make it happen this year? Why not model the path of marketing strategies compiled by Andrea Costantine and Lisa Shultz.
