Do you need to get your book in the news?
Introducing the only resource that shows you, step-by-step, how to create your most important book promotion tool.
“An extremely useful and practical guide for creating pitch-perfect press releases. I will recommend this to all my students and fellow writers.” – Monica Bhide, author of Karma and the Art of Butter Chicken
But before you can do this, you really need to … announce your book!
You need to write a press release. There’s a right way to do it, and a wrong way to do it. The good news is: Doing it right is easy! So what’s holding you back?
1. You don’t know enough about press releases. When you don’t understand what a press release is, how it’s used by journalists, and how you can use it to gain widespread attention for your book, it’s pretty hard to write one. You need to know what it will do for you before you can create one, right?
2. You don’t know how to begin. You might know what to say, but you’re not sure how to say it or how to organize your thoughts. You end up staring at the screen because you’re just not sure what you should and shouldn’t write. Maybe you could try to copy what somebody else wrote in their book’s press release. But where would you find one to copy, and how would you know it was even a good example to follow?
3. You don’t know what it should look like. If you’ve never seen a press release, how can you be expected to write one? You suspect there are rules to follow, but you don’t know what they are. The good news? With a little help from an expert, you’ll never have to worry about the purpose of your book’s press release, how to write it, or what format to follow so that your release is successful.
