Do you dream of landing a traditional publishing contract or watching your self-published book shoot towards the top of Amazon? Whether you have your sights set on a large advance from a publishing house or simply long to see an increase in royalties from your Kindle sales, you won’t achieve either without the development of a solid author platform. The days when traditional publishers handled 100% of the book marketing and sales for their authors has long gone. Today, the majority of publishers expect their authors to play a significant role in marketing their own books. In fact most publishers will not take on an author who does not already have an established author platform. When it comes to self-publishing, building your platform is imperative to the success of your book. Without a built-in platform at the time you launch a new book, the prospect of your book finding its way towards the top of an already crowded marketplace is very slim. What if you had the tools available to build a loyal following of people who would buy your next book the moment it was released? What if those same people decided to broadcast the link to your book sales page to all their connections without pause? This book will help you reach beyond your current fold of family, friends, and devoted followers, and provide you with the action steps and tips you need to find more targeted and loyal connections by way of social media marketing tailored for authors.
