EVEN THE ODDS WITH THIS UNIQUE GUIDE TO AUTHOR MARKETING SUCCESS! The news is full of stories about the state of the publishing industry. Change is everywhere. Publishers, large and small, are leaving the tasks of marketing and promotion to the author. If you’re not already a best selling author, what’s a writer to do? They need to do it themselves. While authors are aware they need to promote and market their book, they have no clue how to go about it. There are hundreds of resources teaching a writer how to create character and develop plot, how to format a book proposal and how to pitch to literary agents and publishers; but very few on how an author implements success AFTER the book is contracted and about to go on the market. The questions can be overwhelming and locating the answers, even trickier. Welcome to Finding Author Success: Discovering and Uncovering the Marketing Power within your Manuscript. On these well organized and encouraging pages, an author learns how to develop a strong Book Business Plan; the power of creating effective, targeted platforms; the basics of publicity, marketing and promotions; how to use the unique elements within their book to locate and reach new and expanded markets; and how to stand apart from the noisy crowd of other authors. Finding Author Success removes the mystery about gaining book sales and increasing exposure for your book and you as a professional author.
