“Well after publishing my book with AuthorHouse
and doing my Barnes & Noble book tour around the country, I’ve had a lot of aspiring
authors come to me and ask me for advice about publishing their own book. I always tell them
that you really need three things: the first thing you need is you need a story to tell.
Nobody wants to read a book that is boring, doesn’t have any kind of artistry or doesn’t
have any interesting information. So having a story to tell, writing it well and getting
your book edited well would be very helpful in that first step of the publishing process.” “The second thing you need to do is you need
to find a publisher that will work with you and take your concerns seriously, make sure
that you understand more about the publishing process and work with you with a production
team that will make your product come to life.” “And finally the third thing I say to people
is you really need to market, market, market. There’s no end to trying to market your
book. If you don’t market your book no one is going to know who you are or what the book
is about or even if the book exists. So doing radio shows, doing television interviews,
going to your local newspaper, giving interviews with reporters, holding events in area stores,
book signings at book stores, or even my case, we even had a red carpet event in Hollywood.
We did all kinds of marketing techniques to try and get the book out there in the public
eye.” “So having a story to tell, finding the right
publisher and making sure you market your book so that other people know about it are
three critical things you really need to be an aspiring author and making sure your work
will actually come to fruition.” AuthorHouse. Call for a Free Publishing Consultation.
