When it comes to selling your new book ...
it's not about you ...
It's about the person you want to spend $ on your prose.
We want to share in a great read with others ...
I got my 4 best friends in junior high to read a "phone book" of a tome
by teasing the beginning of a desert fort manned by only corpses ...
Who propped the last body up?
THE LEAGUE OF FIVE
why I think audio books are important:
The LEAGUE OF FIVE did not last.
The Tugs of Life have a way of doing that.
But we're talking about
selling your new book, right?
Nissa Annakindt wrote a great post on that:
WHY DO YOU READ?
How much do you enjoy
calls from telemarketers?
Keep those 2 questions in mind as you try
to market your book.
Be brief in your tease.
Add wonder, mystery,
And in a world gone mad ...
give them laughter
along with relatable characters
who are good company for the journey.
That you are marketing at all means to many
you are not selling thousands and are probably self or small press published
which casts doubts on how well you can write.
ENTICE THEM WITH THE SPARKLE
OF YOUR LOGLINE
AND FRESHNESS OF YOUR WIT.
