Curious about all the things a book launch entails? Join us today on #realitycoachingforwriters today as we celebrate Eddie’s newest books release and all he has done (with the help of Tammy Karasek email@example.com ) to create a successful book launch. #booklaunchsecrets
Here are some of the things we covered in today’s episode:
* Announce that today is launch day
* Thank your followers
* Send reminders about signings, interviews, blog post appearances this day and follow days
* Email launch team and ask for reviews
* Email influencers and remind them to mention your book today
* Repost social media posts from others with “thank you!’
* Announce winners of giveaways
* Update social media headers with book cover and where to buy
* Double check distribution and price at online resellers
* Change any previous text that said “pre-order” with ON SALE NOW!
* Post any blog posts announcing your book’s release
* SHOW UP for media appearances!
* 1-3 posts on each platform, on release day, could do 1 in morning, noon and night. Make each post different, something different about the book, but same post can be shared at same time of day across platforms
* Join groups on your platforms and share your posts to your groups—some require self-promotion on one day of week, fyi.
* Create an interactive post, can provide fun facts or ask questions, then want to learn more? read this book…
* Follow and share posts made about your book by launch team, publishers, reviewers
* Trying to make people think about your book more, way to get word of mouth engagement is sharing and posting.
* Author live event on Facebook or platform of choice
* Offer to read out loud a passage from the book.

If after watching you have questions, ask!!! We love helping authors work around the gatekeepers Amazon and Ingram that continue to squeeze authors.
How do we turn our preaching into caring content? It starts with:
Empathetic Storytelling: Weave relatable anecdotes that showcase your understanding of your audience’s experiences.
Understanding Pain Points: Identify the challenges your readers face and address them with genuine concern.
Practical Solutions: Offer actionable advice that stems from a sincere desire to help your readers overcome their issues.
Authenticity Matters: Share personal stories of growth and learning to connect with your audience on a human level.
Active Listening: Engage with your audience’s feedback and respond with empathy and insights.
Subtle Advice Integration: Integrate advice into relatable scenarios rather than stating opinions outright.
Walk in Their Shoes: Write from the reader’s perspective, acknowledging their emotions and concerns.
Open Dialogue: Encourage discussions that allow readers to share their experiences and insights.
Tailored Solutions: Offer customized solutions that cater to your diverse readers’ needs and preferences.
Positive Impact: Keep the focus on helping and inspiring your readers rather than instructing or preaching.
Community Building: Foster a sense of community where readers feel cared for and supported.
Sincere Tone: Convey your message with a genuine and caring tone, showing that you truly value your readers’ well-being.
