So, you’ve worked on your book for years and now it’s time to release it. Now What? How do you “get it out there?”
Here are my tried-and-true tips on how to launch a non-fiction book in glamour and style:
- Plan a captivating book launch event: A book launch event should be more than just a book signing or a simple speech. It should be an experience that showcases the essence of your book and engages your audience. Plan an event that includes keynote speakers, music, food, and other activities that are relevant to your book’s theme. Make sure your event stands out and is memorable. Be extra.

2. Build anticipation: The key to a successful book launch is to build anticipation for your book. Use social media platforms, email marketing, and other promotional tools to create a buzz around your book. Share snippets of your book on social media, release teasers, and host giveaways to keep your audience engaged and excited about the launch. Oh, and don’t forget to write, distribute and pitch your press release to key media contact. Need help with that, I got you.. see http://quickmediacoverage.com.
3. Collaborate with influencers: Collaborating with influencers can give your book launch the extra push it needs. Reach out to influencers in your industry or niche who have a significant following and who are likely to resonate with your book. They can help promote your book, attend your launch event, and even write reviews to increase your book’s visibility and credibility.
