How do you launch a book?

Launch a book-make new friends!

My mystery series book one aka Disk of Death is about to be re-released into the world. I want it in the hands of as many people as possible. The question is, what do I do now? Where do I start? How do I craft a book launch that will really help my book take off?

The tornado of activity that surrounds a book launch can go on for a long time. It can be an experience that makes your head spin unless you have a plan. And sometimes, even with a plan, you can get over your head. I would love to hear your suggestions on what has worked for you. There are a lot of really good books coming out in 2016 so I will be in good company.

But for now, in preparation for my book’s kickoff early in 2016, I am hoping to gather a bit of info to make it successful. One or two things I already knew–

1. Write a book launch blog post
2. Send a book launch email to your subscribers
3. Send out review copies to interested readers.

So, I am officially calling this my pre-pre-pre launch blog post. This is the official notice for you that I am soon to release a mystery novel called Disk of Death. It is a re-issue of my old series from 2008. Edited professionally, new cover, and all new branding — it’s like a whole new book.

Since my site was hacked, I lost all my subscriber info. I would love to handle number 2 and number 3 all with the same post, so if you are interested in getting a FREE ARC of the book, in exchange for a review, all you have to do is leave me your email address and I will get it to you.

The subscribe feature is located in the sidebar. And thanks you guys, this has been a rocky month. I am so looking forward to 2016! The cover reveal will be coming soon!
