Frequently Asked Questions
Can’t I do this myself?
Yes. Absolutely. I would even encourage it. In 2015, I self-published a novel on Amazon Kindle, and I was able to generate a small buzz on my own. It’s what comes next that defines how successful your efforts will be. If you keep writing, pitching media, and building relationships directly with readers, you’ll see some success most likely. In that case I can build you a site if you need, and I can explain how I got my self a speaking gig, and how I found more readers.
How do I sell more books?
I nearly sold my way into the top 100 in International Mystery & Crime on Kindle just by telling friends, and pitching random people at coffee shops and bars. The truth is that $15.00 is a relatively insignificant amount of money for people to cough up if you have the pitch down. Getting those people to read, and then to tell more people to buy it is the harder part.
How do I get reviews?
You can submit your book through Kirkus if you’re confident. That can open a lot of doors if you feel good about your book, but you can also find reviewers on social media, and Google. Why not pitch them directly? This works. It’s a pain, and you’ll put in a lot of effort up front, but it works if you focus your efforts.
So how do I do that?
You might already be better at this than anyone else you can hire. The question you need to ask to get that first round of people to spread the word for you is why do these people give a shit about your story? It doesn’t matter if it’s fiction or non-fiction, what matters is why someone identifies with what you’re saying. Once you have that down, you have a leg up on most people. The thing is: the best way to figure that message out is by getting people to read your book and give you feedback. That’s way harder than getting someone to fork over $15.00.
So now that you have feedback what do you do?
Once you know what people are saying about your book, you need to pitch bloggers, reviewers, and media to help you build a buzz. And it won’t happen overnight (most likely). I did this for myself by finding different communities of professionals and press I could talk to, and that led to me getting an op/ed published, my first podcast interview, and a book reading at SXSW in Austin, TX. Pretty much anyone can do this, even if they’re nobody, though you have to reach out a lot until you get your first big wins. The thing is: it’s a longterm play, and you won’t become a bestseller even if you get these things, so you have to be prepared to get these first wins and invest in your next book, or some other goal to keep building success.
Are you writing a book?
Tell me about it.
We can discuss anyone of these packages, or I can tell you more about how I won myself media coverage. If you're curious about one of the packages, I'm more than happy to answer any questions you have.
