With more than 400,000 books published a year it is harder than ever to get attention for a book.
But there are things you can do as an author to help your books sell.
Nothing sells books like word of mouth. But how do you get word of mouth started? How do you get the first 300, or 500, or 2,000 readers?
No one ever buys a book they never heard of. No one walks into a bookstore or a library and says “I want to read a book you never heard of and I never heard of.”
So how do you get people to know about your book?
There are many, many ways, and that’s what Buzz Your Book is all about! Self-published, traditionally published, these 7 webinars, taught by best-selling author and founder of AuthorBuzz.com M.J. Rose, will help you buzz your book.
