What’s the Next Step for Your Book?
This is for you if your book is:
- Almost finished (at least 85%)
- Finished but not edited
- Edited but not published
- Published but not selling
- Selling but not as much as you want
While in most instances, sales, marketing, and launching freak people out, when it comes to a book, all authors can think about is holding that book in their hands – and telling the world about it.
So much so that I often have Discovery Session calls with authors to talk about publishing, only to discover… the book isn’t written yet! For some reason, the idea of promoting your book sounds oh-so-fun. And authors just can’t WAIT to dive into the nitty gritty of cover design, titles, and how they’ll market the book.
Marketing Your Book IS Important
There are lots of “how to write a book” experts out there who will say it’s NEVER too early to think about marketing your book.
Because while I think your writing mentor should have eyes on your future marketing – so that your book doesn’t give away the farm, leave your readers with a false sense of closure, or end up feeling like a really big sales letter – you, as the author, have more important things to think about while you’re writing.
