The Marketing Begins

Now that Catalyst is out (almost, you can pre-order it on Amazon and Barns and Noble) the next step starts for me. Marketing.

While I am comfortable writing and telling stories through prose I know little to nothing about marketing. This is going to be a steep learning curve for me. But there are people to help me out.

Booklocker wants me to do well because when I do well they do well so they offer me free advice and gave me a free book on how to market my book effectively in 90 days. So for the next three months or so I’m going to be working on that as well as rewriting book two and trying to get good marks in university. That should be easy, right?

But I won’t be doing it alone. Have I mentioned that I have a wife who is skilled in the art of writing. Also, did you know that marketing requires a lot of writing? It’s only been a couple days and she has already helped me out a ton. Life’s not so intimidating if you have someone to help you through it.

So today I’ll be working on writing author bio’s and book descriptions at various lengths for reviewers and media outlets. The book I have calls it a marketing cheat sheet. I already feel like a fish out of water.

But when I figure out and get into a groove I’ll let you know how it’s done so you can market your own book successfully.

  1. I didn’t think I’d know how to market a book. Still don’t think I know, but I’ve done something right along the way.
    Good luck! Wife support is important.
