AUTHORS: Learn how to SELL YOUR BOOK from a bestselling author/former Marketing Director!
So you wrote a book, or are
currently working on it. That’s awesome!
But writing your book is only one
part of the process. It’s a big part, don’t get me wrong, but if your goal is
to actually make MONEY doing this, to make a living or, at least pay a few bills,
then you need to take the marketing part of your novel seriously.
Most writers aren’t marketers. That’s where I come in.
I went from being a single mom on
welfare after my divorce years ago, to an award-winning, bestselling author
making a 6 figure income on ROYALTIES ALONE. That’s right, ALL of that comes
from book sales.
I don’t say this to brag, not at
all. I’m not a New York Times bestseller (yet), or a household name (yet), but
I am a successful mid-list author who has hit a few bestseller lists and sells
consistently, particularly the titles I published under my own imprint. (Why I
believe SO MUCH in being your own publisher, but that’s a story for another
While I have a lot of books out,
the first 10 are with a publisher, and I have very little say over marketing,
so they don’t sell a whole lot. My recent books starting this January were
under my imprint, allowing me to control the marketing, and they TOOK OFF! I’m
now having months where I make more in 30 days then I did in a whole freaking
I’ve been a marketing director for
a small press, worked for a publicity company, and owned my own marketing and
design company, and through it all I’ve learned a lot about how to sell books,
how to brand authors, what works and what doesn’t.
I don’t take clients anymore, but I
recently got offered a chance to teach a class with the lovely and talented Rebecca T.
Dickson on marketing basics for authors, and I jumped at the chance.
Why? Because I love marketing, and
I want to share that love with you. I love writing too; I’m one of those weird
hybrid freaks! lol My husband (Dmytry Karpov) and I are a team. We write and
market together, this whole business is ours, and we love love love it!
And it’s not as hard as you think.
In this class, the first thing you’ll get is instant access to a bonus tutorial
where I’ll teach you one simple super secret trick that will help you improve
your sales on Amazon. You’ll learn how to get your book listed on up to 7
bestseller lists (depending on how it’s selling), and how to use that to make
more money! This is so ridiculously easy, but almost no one knows how to do it.
I’m going to show you how as soon as you sign up for this class.
Then, on September 14th from 1-4
p.m. EDT I’m going to teach you everything you need to know about how to
build your platform and all the tools of social media to find your fans and
sell your book (and get THEM helping you to sell your book.) These days,
book sales are about word of mouth and tribe building, and by the end of this
class you’ll have all the tools you need to do it like a pro and HAVE FUN
while you do it.

When it comes to writing and
publishing and marketing, we have to work together. There’s no shortage of
