Are you using your self-isolation time
to write a book? 

Wait!

Don't write a word until  you have a
marketing plan in place for that book!

It’s one thing to have a great book idea…but would that book sell?

What do you want it to do for you?

Would it help promote your business, or boost your career?

Is there any demand for your idea?

How can you turn your idea into something that will market you?

What steps do you take to make your idea a finished book?

How will you break even or make a profit on it?

These are all great questions to ask.

 

They are also questions to which you should have the answers before launching a book project. It’s a difficult and sometimes daunting task to write and market a book. Not to mention a book is a very significant investment of both time and money.

What you need is a Book Marketing Plan. A roadmap to determine whether the best way for you to move forward with it. Or perhaps make some refinements before proceeding.

Thompson Writing & Editing offers two options for this:

Our Book Marketing Plan Coaching Program guides you to doing the research and brainstorming necessary to develop your own book marketing plan. We'll provide you with worksheets and you'll get 3 to 5 one-on-one Zoom sessions with Lynn to help you develop and refine your book idea into a written action plan within as little as two weeks, or up to a month, depending on your time frames and commitment to the work.

Not up for doing all that work yourself? Our Concierge Book Marketing Plan, described below, does it all for you!
