Sadly, books don’t sell themselves.
I know. I know. They really should.
A good book should find its audience easily, it should impress readers and make them rave about it. And send them scurrying to buy more books by you, and make you rich. Right?
And it can.
Thing is… people have to find out that your book exists before all that exciting stuff can happen.
And that is where marketing comes in.
Yes. That dreadful word. That sleazy word. That horror.
Because most marketing we’re exposed to is horrible. It’s as simple as that. We all know those authors on FB and Twitter who post nothing but BUY. MY. BOOK. *sigh*
You hate it. I hate it. Everyone hates it.
The trick is not to do that. Instead, we can do something else.
And I’ll tell you in the video.
So yes, this takes some brains and some creativity. Which you have, since you’re an author. You got this. All you need to do is think outside of the box, and stop doing what you’ve seen “everyone else” do.
And here’s some tapping to help you get really creative in how you tell people about your books.
Even though I utterly dread marketing, I’m totally okay the way I am, and I’m now open to the possibility that talking about my book can be fun.
Even though I hate having to market – my book should sell on its own! – I’m still okay the way I am, and I now give myself permission to make marketing fun.
Even though I can’t really imagine pushing my books on people, I’m still totally okay the way I am, and I now choose to make this stuff fun and entertaining – and enjoy it myself!
How do you feel about marketing?
What would you like to share about your book? (No ads – Ahem!)
What happened while you were tapping?
And finally – are you using tapping with your writing?
Please share in a comment.
