Article: This is How You Find Your Readers: Book Marketing in 2021 #motownwriters

If you have designs on publishing and selling a book this year, there’s work to do before, during, and after your book launch. My goal is to help guide you through the process so you can find your readers in 2021.

Thankfully, the American election season is now in the rear-view mirror, but there’s been one more landslide recorded when votes of another kind were tallied.

Every so often, I poll the BookBaby audience by asking this question: What do you want to learn about self publishing?

It’s the fourth time I’ve asked this question in my regular Saturday email. My previous queries have elicited a variety of responses. Some respondents asked for writing tips. Many others asked me to write about self publishing. And I’ve always received a smattering of requests for book marketing tips. Up to now, it’s been a mixed bag without any one area receiving a majority response.

Well, that all changed in my latest request for input. Here’s a representative sampling of the latest responses.

🌟 New Episode #32: Purposeful + Practical PR = Rockstar Publicity, with Yetunde Shorters w/@pamperry

Pam Perry PR
Podcast Episode 32
Do you know what you’ve been put on this planet to do, but you don’t know what to do next? Do you want to make a profit while standing tall in your purpose? Then you need to meet this week’s guest, Yetunde Shorters.

An award-winning international publicist, entrepreneur, and author, Yetunde Shorters has spent 20 years getting publicity features for musicians, artists, and solopreneurs all over the world.

Now she’s helping women entrepreneurs get crystal clear on their life’s purpose, and with that clarity, activate it for impact and income.

If you have knowledge and know-how and are tired of being a best-kept secret, then listen in and level up while Yetunde and I talk about: the childhood adventures that reveal our true purpose, a single question to uncover your target audience, proof that what you offer isn’t for everybody, why big engagement is worth more than a big following, what to do before launching your book, what personal branding is really about … and more!
Highlights From This Episode:

  • What the Revenge of the Nerds movie sparked young Yetunde to do
  • How she switched from pre-law to PR in just 30 seconds 😉
  • Not sure about your target audience? This one question will make it crystal clear…
  • Perfect Example: No one is a fit for everyone
  • How to expand your business and still stay focused
  • What is NLP?
  • Your publicist isn’t your therapist, buuuut…
  • Are you ready to be seen?
  • What personal branding is really about
  • Your mindset shift for reaching out to the media
  • How social media has warped our sense of timing
  • How long it really takes to build an engaged online community
  • Why follower engagement > number of followers
  • What to do before launching your book

Article: Step #1 To Finding Your Readers: Make The Best Book You Can #motownwriters

make the best book

Before you embark on a book marketing campaign, you need to make the best book you can. Without professional editing and design, your product won’t rise above the other great books in the marketplace.

Author’s note: This is the first in a regular series of blog posts focused on essential book marketing topics for self-published authors in our months-long campaign, 2021: The Year To Find Your Readers. These posts will cover topics in two categories:

  1. 100 days before publish. Tasks to accomplish while your book is still in production.
  2. 100 days after publish. The latest and greatest book marketing tactics for self-published authors.

My last BookBaby Blog post outlined my plan for devoting time and energy to helping self-published authors find readers. For the next few months, I’m going to share the latest, best, and most-effective marketing ideas we’ve discovered by working with thousands of BookBaby authors. So off we go!

#MotownWriters May Featured Author: @ConnorCoyne Grab #Urbantasm, Review, Support, Share #MichLit

Gritty YA Realism with a Dash of Mystery, Fantasy and 90’s Nostalgia #Urbantasm
See full interview at motownwriters.com/feature
Buy Book: https://amzn.to/3xneRcW

About book
Urbantasm is a magical teen noir serial novel inspired by the author’s experiences growing up in and around Flint, Michigan.

Thirteen-year-old John Bridge’s plans include hooking up with an eighth-grade girl and becoming one of the most popular kids at Radcliffe Junior High, but when he steals a pair of strange blue sunglasses from a homeless person, it drops him into the middle of a gang war overwhelming the once-great Rust Belt town of Akawe.

John doesn’t understand why the sunglasses are such a big deal, but everything, it seems, is on the table. Perhaps he accidentally offended the Chalks, a white supremacist gang trying to expand across the city. Maybe the feud involves his friend Selby, whose father died under mysterious circumstances. It could even have something to do with O-Sugar, a homegrown drug with the seeming ability to distort space. On the night before school began, a group of teenagers took O-Sugar and leapt to their deaths from an abandoned hospital.

John struggles to untangle these mysteries while adjusting to his new school, even as his parents confront looming unemployment and as his city fractures and burns.

.@stage32 presents How to Find and Choose the Right Screenwriting Manager for Your Career – on demand #webinar | #motownwriters

https://www.stage32.com/webinars/How-to-Find-and-Choose-the-Right-Screenwriting-Manager-for-Your-Career#about-instructor

If you’re an aspiring writer, a good literary manager is often a vital ingredient for your success and continuing career. They’re with you on every step of your journey. They give you notes on your projects, help you strategize and prioritize, keep you motivated, and get you in front of execs, producers, and other players to get that next job. It’s a crucial and ongoing relationship that can make or break your career. The manager/client relationship is an intimate and important one that should be based on trust and communication, as well as on personalities. Because of this, it’s worth taking the time to think about what kind of working relationship you want to have with your rep.
