WRITE BRAIN/LEFT BRAIN
Bridging the Gap Between Creative Writer and Marketing Author

Marketing is a very scary prospect for authors. It seems like a foreign language meant to be spoken in a far off land without an embassy to help explain the culture. None of this is true. It isn’t marketing that’s the issue—it’s a fear and general misunderstanding of marketing in relation to an author’s talents and skill set.

Authors are creative people who solve problems within their imagination. Just because they’ve never been creative within the marketing universe does not mean they can’t. In fact, the more creative a marketing author is, the further they step away from the competition and ineffective marketing strategies, and the more book sales success they will find.

Write Brain/Left Brain is the goose with the golden egg. These pages open doors to thinking outside the box and away from the noisy competition. It encourages authors to see the bigger book buying world, imaginatively seek out broader audiences, and always trust their creative nose to accomplish their book sales goals. This book is designed to remove an author’s fear of marketing and replace it with the inventive possibilities specific to the book marketed.

Authors, open your mind and take the empowering leap into the astonishing, imaginative marketing playground.

FINDING AUTHOR SUCCESS, Second Edition

Even the Odds with this Unique Guide to Author Marketing Success!

The news is full of stories about the state of the publishing industry. Change is everywhere. Publishers, large and small, are leaving the tasks of marketing and promotion to the author. If you’re not already a best selling author, what’s a writer to do? They need to do it themselves.

While authors are aware they need to promote and market their book, they have no clue how to go about it. There are hundreds of resources teaching a writer how to create character and develop plot, how to format a book proposal and how to pitch to literary agents and publishers; but very few on how an author implements success AFTER the book is contracted and about to go on the market. The questions can be overwhelming and locating the answers, even trickier.

Welcome to Finding Author Success: Discovering and Uncovering the Marketing Power within your Manuscript.  On these well organized and encouraging pages, an author learns how to develop a strong Book Business Plan; the power of creating effective, targeted platforms; the basics of publicity, marketing and promotions; how to use the unique elements within their book to locate and reach new and expanded markets; and how to stand apart from the noisy crowd of other authors.

Finding Author Success removes the mystery about gaining book sales and increasing exposure for your book and you as a professional author.
