When it comes to gathering publicity for yourself and your book, I have two big questions for you:
- Do you sometimes feel absolutely clueless as to what goes in a press release … and for that matter, why you should care?
- Do you know what’s the difference between authors who write timely, helpful press releases for their books and other news events, and authors who don’t?
And drumroll … how about these answers:
- Thousands of dollars in free publicity.
- Top ranking in the search engines.
- Paid speaking engagements.
- Bulk orders.
- Consulting assignments.
…and lots more
How many ways are there to write a press release? As many ways as there are to write a book.
How many types of press releases can you write? Dozens.
But most authors don’t bother. They don’t know how to write press releases and don’t want to embarrass themselves. Or they can’t find a formula or set of guidelines to help them.
Join me for a very special free webinar from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, July 20. Joan Stewart, The Publicity Hound, will give you detailed guidelines on how to write a press release for your book. I’m co-hosting a free webinar with her on “How to Write Press Releases that Get Publicity, Build Your Brand and Sell More Books.”
