Thanks for the great responses this week! I love the easy marketing tips you added to the conversation. I’m also so glad that those of you who don’t have a book out yet are going to put these ideas to work in your book proposals.
One of the comments from two days ago brought up marketing to book clubs. Today, I’d like to invite you to discuss how you could market to book clubs.
How do you go about finding book clubs and presenting your book to them as a potential selection?
Could you write discussion questions or a reader’s guide for your book? How would you get these materials to the book clubs? Would it be best to offer it for free?
Would you be willing to do Skype or phone interviews with book clubs?
I look forward to your thoughts on this! I honestly don’t know the answers to all of these questions, so I hope you might have a little bit to offer either from experience or through research you have done–or from your book club’s experience.
