Resources and best practices for your successful indie book launch

Welcome! If you’re an indie author preparing to launch your book, you’ve come to the right place.

Your launch should be a huge event — it can create buzz, drive sales, and set the stage for the life of your book. But this may be your first book launch, and you may not be aware of best practices or resources …

If you don’t know what you’re doing, you won’t be positioned to make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

I was barely even in the publishing business when I launched my first book; I didn’t know what I was getting into, and really wished I had access to a set of clear guidelines. That’s why I’ve pulled this information together — to help other first-time indie authors. (Also, so I don’t forget everything I learned when it’s time to launch my second book.)

I found that with even a little planning you can create a successful book launch. The keys to success are:

  1. Research possibilities (this site will help).
  2. Know yourself (I’ll explain why this is vitally important).
  3. Plan ahead (there’s a lot to do) and start early (it takes longer than you think it will).
  4. Stay organized (there’s a lot to keep track of).

With the right preparation, you’ll have a fun and memorable event with good sales volume, and you’ll launch the future success of your book. Let’s get started.
