Story Marketing - Have Fun with Your Book Marketing

Does the thought of promoting your book turn you into the world’s greatest procrastinator? Or are you disciplined in your book marketing efforts, but frustrated by the lack of sales from all that work?

You’re not alone.

Thankfully, there’s a better way to attract readers without turning into a salesperson.

Your audience doesn’t want another email from you asking them to buy your book. But they do want to immerse themselves in a great story. In Story Marketing: How to Have Fun Marketing Your Fiction Book, learn how to use your creativity to allow readers to further explore the characters, setting, and other aspects of your story to make them hungry for your books.

You’ll learn dozens of Story Marketing ideas like:

  • Having one of your characters write an advice column answering your readers’ questions
  • Setting up a Twitter account for your character and tweeting as if you’re them
  • Sharing photos of the location where your story is set
  • Asking your readers to suggest which actors should play your characters once the book is made into a movie

Story Marketing is more enjoyable for your readers to consume.

It's more fun for you, the author, to create.

It also helps you write better stories.

If you’re tired of traditional book marketing and you’re ready to grow your audience, it’s time to try out Story Marketing.
