How I successfully launched my book Fire & Ice on February 16th2019.
I rate it a success because of the number of people who attended, and the number of books sold.
1. Have a plan.
What? Fiction or Non-fiction each need different approaches.
When? Fix a suitable day or time My romance was launched close to Valentine’s Day
Where? Library, book shop, playgroup, business or another venue.
One of the most talked about book launches was held in a circus.
Who? The best audience for your type of book. children, adults, mums, business people?
Do you know any celebrities or local celebrities? Invite them! They can only say no.
Publicity. Let people know about your book. Make an effort to get the word out after all who is more interested in your success than you? Yes, it can be scary-do it anyway.
Budget. How much can you afford to spend? Big dollars don’t always translate into big results.
2 Organising A Do It Yourself launch.
Yes, you can!
My publisher( a small indie) is in the Eastern States, while I am in Perth. I organised my own book launch-after all the work writing the book it felt sad not to have one. I wanted to celebrate.
Did you self-publish? Then again, the launch is up to you.
I will go into more detail about these topics in my next blog post
