Promoting Your Book for the Holidays

Holiday Promotions

Was 2017 the year you finally wrote and published that book you’ve been dreaming of writing for years? Or was it the year you had a new release come out and you’d like to create some hype around it?

July Wrap-Up!

kait_webIt’s hard to believe that August is here already. I’m starting to see back-to-school sales everywhere I go. The funny thing is that every time I see one, I do a little happy dance inside. Because I don’t have to prepare for back-to-school! Because I did it! Because I graduated!

One of the perks of graduating is that I now have much more time to spend reading, blogging, and working. Speaking of working, I am excited to announce two new services available through Kait’s Bookshelf – book promotion and product promotion. In addition, I am excited to have taken on some new writing opportunities this month, and I will share more on that later. I am also very proud to share the new official Kait’s Bookshelf logo. Honestly, when I think about all that’s happened in July, it’s a little overwhelming. It is an exciting time for sure and I will continue to share as I have news regarding the website, the business, and new services.

But for now, it’s time for my July wrap-up, a brief summary of the book reviews and blog posts I shared this month in addition to highlighting my favorite title from this month’s reads. So, without further ado, my July wrap-up!

Promoting Your Book as a New or Self-Publishing Author

Stack of BooksSo you’ve finally written that book you’ve been dreaming of writing for years. And even better, you’ve now published it and it’s available on Amazon. Great! But…now what? How do you make people aware that you’ve written and published your book? How do you get people interested in buying and reading it?

But the downside to forgoing the traditional publishing route is that you also forgo the perks of working with a traditional publishing house, like having an entire marketing department ready to promote your book to the masses. So what’s an author to do? Based on feedback I’ve received from self-publishing authors, I’ve compiled the following list of ways to promote your book without breaking the bank.
