When you self-publish your book, you may be extremely nervous with regard to your book selling potential. When implementing your book marketing plan, things can either go wrong or right, depending on the approach you take and the strategies you apply.
How would you like to sell more copies of your book? Would you like to read excerpts from your book to a captivated audience?
Book signings are the cornerstone of an author’s post-publication foundation. But how do you set them up?
Organizing book signings, readings, and public appearances is one of the most important parts of a successful marketing campaign.
So what do you do when you have a book signing and no one shows up? Sure that may sound like the beginning of a great joke but for many of us, it’s our worst nightmare.
Think of your book on the bookstore shelf trying to attract the attention of potential new owners. Crammed together with hundreds of other books, only the spine visible to the roving eyes of readers, your book needs a little help from its creator.
So you’ve written a book, had it published by a publishing company and you are now facing the dreaded book signing or book launch. Your palms sweat at the thought of facing droves of people and actually having to talk to them. You are a writer, not a salesperson, right? Wrong! If you do not have the guts and determination to sell your own work, then why should anyone else do it for you?
