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.

USING YOUR WORDS FOR MARKETING, HOOKING THE RIGHT BOOK BUYER, AND GROWING AUDIENCES
