We all know that as writers we need to promote our books, whether we are traditionally or self-published.
If you’re here, it’s probably because, with a sinking feeling, you realise that if your book is going to be a success, you are going to have to promote it yourself!
Perhaps you have been waiting for a course like this, to take you step by step through the marketing minefield?
It’s never too early to start thinking about promoting your book!
Even while you’re still writing your story, there are many things you can do to lay down a great foundation for your marketing.
If I know anything about you, it’s this: you’re here because deep within, you feel you have been given a gift from God to write for young people, and you long to get your books into their hands.
But you know you need some help with promotion!
So you have decided: no matter what anyone else says, you are going to do this. Or at least give it your best shot!
Are you fed up with books in boxes in a corner of your home? Or checking sales of your ebook to find only a trickle has been sold?
Do you find it frustrating, because you want your story out there, sharing the love of God, bringing joy, life, light and hope?
Our children are facing so many issues, whether they have been brought up in the church, or have no idea what being a Christian means.
You know they need your story.
That’s why I set up the Book Marketing Academy.
Not all the lessons will be relevant for you.
No problem! There will be plenty of things you can run with, which will transform your marketing.
You may need to step a bit out of your comfort zone, but don’t worry, it will only be one small step at a time!
Cut the overwhelm, the confusion and the anxiety. Do what you need to do, step by step, by following the instructions in the course.
I was talking to our newest Dernier author recently, who was nervous about marketing her book. Can you relate to that? I think most of us can!
This is how I encouraged her to think about selling her books – every book you sell is like taking a reader to Jesus.
How many children you would you like to take to Jesus. 10, 100, 1,000…. thousands?
It’s time to start getting your books into readers’ hands, with the help of each other, and the help of God.
How does the Book Marketing Academy work?
The course is online, and you work independently at your own pace, whenever and wherever you wish.
Every week after joining you will gain access to a new promotion strategy. Some you will find useful, some you won’t.
But by the end of the course you will have made huge strides into the world of marketing and promotion (if you put the lessons into practice, of course!).
There will be at least 50 lessons, maybe more. I am continually adding to the course!
Who is the course for?
The Book Marketing Academy is designed for Christians who write fiction for kids and teens, but if you sell Christian fiction, or other children’s books, you will find much of it useful, too.
If you are just starting out with your novel, joining now will mean you are ahead of the game, organised and ready for your launch.
If you have books in boxes that are taking up too much space, or an ebook ready to sell, this course is what you need to get your story out there and into readers’ hands.
I would love to be able to help you turn your dream into a reality. For the sake of the children, and for the glory of God.
