Promoting Your Book

Promoting your Book

Promotion options  – what works best for your book?  What approach will reach your intended audience?

Your book Cover – what works

Who to hire and why

Why we create the cover while still editing the MS

Your website

  • Yeah, you need one.  I recommend WordPress a platform that most hosting sites (like Register.com, Go Daddy, and the like) interface with.
  • Register your site in your name. 
  • We work to create the site and upload all the appropriate materials to make you not only real online, but friendly as well as professional

Promotion

How do you get the word out about your book?  I work with you to create an editorial calendar that breaks down all the steps for an effective marketing campaign for your book.  And no, a dozen tweets “Buy My Book” is not promotion.

When it comes to promotion, the possible is often overwhelming.  I often recommend the probable.  What will you actually do?  Yes, and what can you hire me to do?
