Book Marketing: Develop A Book Marketing Plan | Book Club Reading List.
All book authors need to learn book marketing. I found this out the hard way. I had no previous experience with book marketing and couldn’t rely solely on a publisher. Learning book marketing skills is imperative to get books to the market. I am delighted that LinkedIn has Writers Groups that focus on these important issues.
I signed up for a email marketing class with The Company Corp. and a 12 week Webinar course with Rivka Kawano, a book marketer and partner in a media company. I have met Rivka. She did an wonderful book review of my first book “My Name is Butterfly.” Rivka even came to WI to meet me. She is good if any of you other writers are looking at learning how to sell your book.
Happy book marketing Butterfly Woman Publishing friends.
It has been an ordeal that I don’t ever want to repeat. Cleaning out a house, basement and garage of a life time of accumulation is enough for anyone to learn the lesson, “Less is Best.”
The computer, phone, printer and copier are all ready to go now. I joined a writers group at Fitchburg Senior Center. They are happy to produce a book of their writings and are satisfied with that. Me, I like marketing and getting my books out to the public. Not sure how long I will spend with the group. I am ordering The Monarch Butterfly Coloring Book, my book, to send to Michelle Darmanin, Australia. She lovingly organized an event for authors to contribute children’s books for an impoverished school at Viwa Island, Fiji in 2012. I can’t say enough about Michelle and her husband Michael. They have been unselfish in orchestrating the project with contributing authors from not only Australia, but from the United States and other countries also.
Michelle is starting another book drive for other schools on Viwa Island.
“Sharing this post from my FB friend – Apenisa Rokobaro.
“Michele Darmanin…she has done a wonderful job/project in providing books for the Island of Viwa-(Yasawa)…now Michele and her husband and some of her friends are embarking on similar project on a bigger scale…with your help and your friends help,we-(all of us) would hope to donate a book-(or two or three or a box would be greatly appreciated)…that combine would add up,and Michele is targeting some of the Schools in Fiji that has never received any assistance in terms of Library books…kerekere…get your fingers working and ring up your friends or share this post on FB,Twitter,LinkedIn,Google+ or other social networking sites you have your friends in….Vina Du Rixi”
If any of you authors out there write children’s book, you may wish to contact Michelle directly through Facebook. We know that children’s education is what can lead to a better and more successful life. Let’s put our hearts into having a hand in making the world a better place for those less fortunate than ourselves.
Be well Butterfly Woman Publishing friends where ever you are.
