In today's solo episode of the Thriving Authors Podcast, I’m diving into how to create a marketing plan for your book. Marketing, promoting and launching feel so much less overwhelming when you have a plan in place!

I share a few journal prompts that are really helpful to brainstorm and also explain:

  • How to avoid getting completely burned out and not wanting to do any marketing.
  • The best sort of publicity that you can get that will lead to book sales.
  • A menu of ideas that you can get excited about when creating your plan.
  • A mindset shift so you don’t feel icky or salesy when sharing about your book.
  • Examples of special little extra goodies you can send to everybody who preorders your book.
  • What materials are really helpful to have ready when you’re pitching different media marketing opportunities.
  • And more!

I’m launching my book 📖 Your Book Matters: 52 love notes from my creative heart to yours 😍 SOON and I want YOU to be a part of the launch team!
