Deciding how to launch your new novel can be a huge pain in the butt!
Marketing and promotional activities can be just as challenging as it was to finish writing the book!
Novel Launching PlansNow that your novel, novella, novelette, or short story is ready for publication, how will you introduce it to the world? Every author has their own idea about what they want to accomplish during the initial launch period.
Whatever your objective is (announcing the release, promoting a discount, obtaining reviews, etc.), you won't be able to accomplish it without having some kind of launch plan.
You'll need to decide which services to use, whether you choose the ones that are free, affordable, or downright costly. Personally, I suggest a combination of all 3 (or at least the first 2).
Follow this rule of thumb, namely that it doesn't pay to put all your eggs in one basket. Even if you think you've found the perfect book marketing service or website (like NovelLauncher.com), it doesn't hurt to hedge your bets.
In other words, try to utilize as many book marketing and promotional resources as possible. Don't leave things to chance when it comes to the successful launch of your new novel, now that the "hard part" is over. [Yeah, right!]
