"I hate marketing!"
If I had a nickel for every time a writer said that, I would be living debt-free on a 2000 acre ranch in the Montana mountains. :)
The fact is...book marketing doesn't have to be hard. Yet many writers hate it for one (or both) of two reasons.
Coming from the corporate world, I'm an avid proponent of the "low-hanging fruit" strategy.
- They don't know exactly what to do. I'm hoping to help you take the sting out of this obstacle as we proceed through this 12-week workshop. You may not be an expert when we're done, but I want you to at least have an understanding of the options available to you.
- They try to force an uncomfortable marketing strategy to fit them and their book. There is not a single marketing approach that's right for every book.
