Hey, Christian Indies,
The “experts” agree that the best possible start to a novel begins with a big kick-off they call, “the book launch.”
I am editing a book right now which I hope to publish on October 13 (which happens to be my birthday).
This will be my first novel.
Until now, I have given little thought to the process of publishing my stories; they’ve been shorts, after all, and most of the book-launch advice out there is for people who have a novel-length work of fiction to get in front of the eyes of readers.
In other words, I thought something like a book launch was for “real writers.”
But no, insists Jen – who loves me and wishes me to become at least a tiny portion of the tech and publishing guru that she is – a book launch is for even me, a lowly author with barely any “street cred.” In fact, she argues I am exactly the candidate for a book launch.
I admit, I’m dubious. A book launch seems like a whole lot of work I don’t want to do for a payoff that isn’t guaranteed.
But, I believe in my story, I believe in my characters, and since “they” say a book launch is what every good book deserves, I’m willing to give it a shot.
So, I’ve asked Jen to come on this week and lay it all out for me, step by step.
Will she be able to convince me to put at least some of her plan into action?
Tune in to find out.
See you there,
