If you’re a writer, the chances are that you spend a lot of time on your own. Forcing yourself to shout how great your book is in groups of people you don’t know that well can be fraught with danger and self-doubt. Novel publicity may not be fun. If you also don’t know what you’re doing … unintended consequences can occur when you attempt to publicize your book. Not. Good.
However, if you’re a self-published novelist or an indie author, your novel publicity is doomed to be delivered by you. No-one else will publicize your book. (Well, they will, but you have to ask them nicely). That can be a lacklustre or even damaging experience if you don’t know how it all works.
That’s why the universe made Beverly Bambury. She knows how to publicise books, and she likes empowering authors. You too can publicize your book – without paying for an expensive marketing campaign.
Publicize your book with Beverly Bambury
Beverly’s running an online course called Self-Planning for Self-Promotion: A Book Marketing without BS Web Workshop, and there are a couple of sessions coming up soon.
The first is Thursday 27 March at 7 pm EDT, which is (unfortunately) midnight in the UK. However, the second opportunity is at 6 pm UK time (1 pm EDT) on Sunday 13 April, a much handier time for a lot of people.
Beverly will take you through planning and making the first steps of your novel publicity effort, and fill it in with the details. There’s also a section on some of the harder issues you might encounter, and an extremely useful Q&A session at the end. It does what it says on the tin.
The course is a snip at $15, which is £9.07 – you can pay in dollars through PayPal if you’re British.
