What To Do Before Your Book Launch is a guide for authors, covering everything from working with your publisher, to reading in public, to help for publicity and marketing, to using (and misusing) social media, to how to dress for your author photo…and far more, including cautionary tales, worksheets, timelines and etiquette tips.
Although the book is aimed at traditionally published authors, the advice will work just as well for those who are self-publishing their books. Randy Susan Meyers and M.J. Rose provide an intimate portrait of what happens to a writer during the book launch process. They provide real-life examples and insights from insiders in the business. They help authors manage expectations and learn when to speak up and how to put their best foot forward.
The two writers of this book are authors who’ve learned the ropes on how to prepare and promote their novels, and how to succeed in a tough industry at a tough time.
This is an honest look at the publishing business with plenty of practical advice every author or potential author can use.
