(Apologies for the day-late post! Returning from a much-needed mini vacation…) Once you've done the hard work of turning your creative writing into a professionally-edited and formatted book, all that's left to do is publish it, right? Whether you go the self-publishing or traditional publishing route, there's one fact that remains unchanged: you're going to have to do A LOT of work to get your book noticed! With so many books being released on Amazon every year, your book may end up being "just one more". So how can you make your book as visible as possible and increase its chances of becoming a "best-seller"? Don't look at me for advice! I'm learning this just as much as you. But one amazing resource I found to help with the marketing and advertising is an article on OK Dork, titled How to get an eBook to #1 on Amazon. The article gives an amazingly in-depth breakdown of the book launch blueprint one successful person used for a launch, and explains the tactics they used to launch that book. Granted, it was a non-fiction book, but a lot of the principles remain the same for fiction books. I won't spoil the tips given in the article, but suffice it to say that it's VERY worth 20-40 minutes of your time reading over the long post and considering each of the 10 tips for book launch success. Whether you're launching a book tomorrow or next year, it's a resource worth checking out!
