Tag: book launch
New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tim Grahl joined our January #BBchat Twitter Chat to discuss how writers can plan their own successful book launch.
If you want to publish in time for the holidays, your plan should include room for all the production processes and your publicity push. This self publishing timeline will get you published and ready for holiday sales.
The longer your book is available for pre-order, the more time you have to send readers to Amazon and the other stores to accumulate orders. All these orders count as sales on your release date, giving you a good chance at cracking some top-100 best seller sub genre lists in sites like Barnes & Noble and Powell’s. Note: this is not the case with Amazon’s best selling list. They count pre-sales orders on the day it’s actually ordered, not all combined on the eventual release date.
Part 1 of our Print On Demand series focuses on your POD publishing timeline, the importance of the pre-order sales period, how "on demand" works for the retailers, and how you can maximize book sales with your printed book.
Think you're missing out on the Christmas rush? Maybe not. Self-published authors stand a better chance of sales in January and February. So get ready!
