Why You Need a Plan to Market Your Book

Most authors aren’t marketing experts. If you’ve started writing as a creative hobby, I’m guessing you didn’t plan ahead to getting your books published, let alone marketing them? It might have been a vague dream which became a reality once you realised you could afford to self-publish. Let's look at why you need a plan to market your book in this article.

Congratulations to Pauline Tait who spoke at the Brechin and Angus Book Festival this month.

Fiona Boyd featured in the Sunday Times as part of the Borders Book Festival.

Award-winning author Rosie Hewlett will be taking part in an event at King's Rochester School in January 2022.

Having been shortlisted and reaching the final three titles in the Fiction Category of the prestigious East Anglia Book Award, Heather Peck was delighted to receive the following from the category judge, Kate Weston of UEA: "Unmistakably East Anglian in its setting, Glass Arrows, explores a dark side to rural communities and agricultural crimes, and tackles such issues with realism and sensitivity, from the personal impact of a bird flu outbreak to the challenges of recognising modern slavery. It keeps the reader engaged from start to finish, with remarkable attention to the details of a criminal investigation by Peck. A page-turner that, as a reader, would be enjoyable on screen as well as on the page." Congratulations, Heather!

William Duffy is a finalist in the Independent Author Network Book of the Year Awards (Finalist in "Non-Fiction Religion" and "First Non-Fiction").
