As you may have figured out by now, my area of expertise, and the focus of the Book Marketing Challenge is on book marketing for nonfiction authors. However, given that we have hundreds of fiction authors registered for the event who would like to be able to apply what they are learning, I want to do whatever I can to make this content accessible to both fiction and nonfiction authors.
I’d like to provide tips for how fiction authors can apply the daily steps of the Book Marketing Challenge, to their books. Being that this is not my area of expertise, I’d like to invite our author community to “chime in.”
- For our fiction authors, how have you been applying the daily challenge steps to your writing?
- For our guest experts and anyone participating in the challenge, what ideas do you have for how fiction authors can develop their platform and build a business with their book, that goes beyond their book?
Post your comments below, in the format of a “Tip” – Mention the strategy and talk about how Fiction Authors can apply this strategy to their books. Be sure to include your name, book title, and website address (if you’d like) for additional exposure. Thank you!
Note: By sharing your tip, you are agreeing to your tip being included in the training document we’re putting together. Thank you! This is going to help a lot of people! All comments that include valuable suggestions and ideas will be featured on this page. Any comments that are strictly of a promotional basis will be removed. This thread is to generate marketing suggestions for our fiction authors. If you’d like to share about your book, there are many opportunities to do so, especially in the week-one daily steps and featured articles.
PLEASE NOTE: We’d like to keep the conversation on this post specifically focused on the needs of fiction authors in marketing their books. Look forward to hearing your suggestions. Fiction authors, if you have specific questions regarding (Book Marketing for Fiction Authors) please also feel warmly invited to post those questions here.)
