Book Releases: What do I do now?

Hey everyone and welcome back to the channel. I am Kim Smith, author of the Shannon Wallace Mysteries and my new book release, In the Holler, comes out on April 15.

I have had about 14 releases now. So, I sort of know how it feels. But let me tell you, the feeling stays pretty good all this way through.

IF you are a tiptoe from being here, at book release time, and you really don’t know what to do now, check out this video for some tips.

BOOK RELEASE

Here are a few extra tips for your book release.

  1. Ask for reviews
  2. Put it on PREORDER
  3. Blog about it in advance
  4. Add a link to it in your email signature
  5. Go to your social media sites and change your profile or bio to include it
  6. Create teasers and excerpts

These things will gain interest in your book and help you share with your fans and friends and followers.

NOTE: Try not to check your Amazon page every hour. Trust me on this one!
