Book Launches and Campaigns for Novelists

Get Your Book in the Hands of Your Readers

Dear Genre Novelists!

We're teaching this 8-module bootcamp course to help you take action to market your novel.


You may be wishing for:

  • More structure in your marketing, so that it's easier to organize and get things done
  • Guidance on timing and criteria on what to do when, so you have a clear pathway to action
  • More ideas on how to actually promote your books
  • Tools and techniques for marketing your book to your specific audience
  • Accountability and support so that you'll get things done
  • Markers and milestones to measure your success, so that you can stay motivated during your marketing activities


In this book marketing course on Book Launches and Campaigns for Novelists Bootcamp, we will help you craft your book launch or campaign and take steps to enact it -- all in the community of like-minded novelists.

Authors need to be willing to experiment and play to find what works for them and discover what is fun. How else will they be able to maintain motivation and momentum in this crazy business of being an author?!


Our overall goal is to help you take action so that you can spread the word about your book, build a fan base, and make book sales.


Who This Bootcamp is For:

  • Unpublished authors getting ready to publish in 3-12 months, and wanting to prepare for their first book launch.
  • Unpublished authors who want to build a fan base before they launch.
  • Published authors wanting to plan and then act on their book launch and campaigns.
  • Independently published and traditionally published authors because all authors can benefit from planning their book marketing and getting support to act on their plans.
  • Authors not willing to wait another day to be in inaction around their book marketing campaigns, despite any fear they feel.
  • Novelists willing to bring the creativity of their craft to book marketing.

This course is geared for authors who are ready to jump into planning their launches and campaigns and take action.


Who this course isn't for:

  • Those who think that one-size-fits-all. Your creative life and stories are unique. So will be your marketing.
  • Those who want an easy fix. Sorry there isn't one. You make your own luck.
  • Those who feel that marketing isn't their job. All artists need to market, and novelists are no exception.


Marketing is connecting.

Connect in intentional and useful ways to spread the word about your book.
