Helpful Tips for Authors: Book Launch as a self-published author

Hi! It’s been a while since I have posted on my website. I have been super busy trying my best to do my homework for my class. Another thing I have been doing lately is finishing up my courses both in Author Accelerator’s Book Coaching Course and Mark Dawson’s Ads for Authors course so that I will be able to get the ball rolling when it comes to my book coaching services and doing ads for my books. This week, I had an assignment to do when it came to marketing my books: Planning a book launch and marketing my writer’s platform. One was for a thirty day book launch, the other a monthly book launch, and the last one was for a marketing plan to promote my writing platform throughout the year. This was a very interesting exercise.

If you want to see a quick sample of what I wrote for my class assignment, you can sign up using the contact form below. Make sure that you put in the message that you want a free download of my marketing plan (or otherwise, it will be used for signing up to my mailing list and getting a free short story and NOT the marketing plan). I will admit that this exercise has given me the motivation to plan a book launch sometime this year with both the third book and the previous books as well.

While I was doing this assignment, I just happened to stumble upon a question: How soon should an author do a book launch or even hold a virtual book party? So, I searched on the internet and I found a website that talked about the differences between promotion for a self-published author vs promotion for a traditionally published author.

Love to chat but I have to revise Courtney’s Redemption right now. See you soon.

Several years later, she decided to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Fiction Writing from Columbia College Chicago. After pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Administration, Dominique decided to go back and pursue a degree she had always wanted: An MFA in Creative Writing which she is now pursuing at Southern New Hampshire University.

My first love has always been writing since I was eight years old. After getting my Bachelor's Degree in Fiction Writing from Columbia College Chicago and struggling for years trying to get published the traditional way, I decided that the only way to promote my work was to promote myself which is why I am self-publishing my paranormal romance The Truson S.E.T. Series.
