Sometimes marketing a new book release can be overwhelming, so a few weeks ago, I started a series of blog posts to help simplify the process. We’re talking about what pieces should be the core focus of a launch, depending on what type of book launch you’re doing.
You can see the launch plan for a Debut Novel here.
Today, we’ll cover a sample launch plan for your 1st-in-series book or a standalone title. I consider these as comparable when it comes to planning the launch, because you already have readers from previous books, but you don’t have the momentum of previous books with familiar setting and characters to drive read-through sales.

I’m starting something new…Marketing Group Coaching!
I love working one-on-one with authors, but there are only so many hours in a day… And I also believe there is great power in small-group learning!
Over a 10-week course, we’ll work in groups of about six authors, diving deep into the following topics that are critical to effectively marketing books:
- Find your Target Reader
- Grow Your Email List into a powerful tool
- Build an effective Launch Team
- How to get more Amazon Reviews (and why it matters)
- How to find and work with Influencers in your target audience to widen your reach
Through a combination of videos and group chats (as well as a private Facebook group), you’ll receive in-depth training, actionable feedback, and built-in accountability to help you succeed in each of these areas.
Each coaching group will be open to 6 authors, and this first group will begin within the next few weeks. We’ll schedule the live sessions at a time that works for each group.
I’m offering a 50% discount for the first group, and wanted to give you, my blog family, the first opportunity.

Some days it can feel like we’re drowning in marketing ideas and suggestions. Especially for new authors, the overwhelm can smother us to the point that it’s hard to act at all because of the barrage of tasks.
To help lessen the overwhelm, I’m beginning a series of blog posts to talk about what pieces should be the core focus of a launch, depending on what type of book launch you’re doing.
Today’s post covers a launch plan for your debut release, both the big picture goals and the details. Read the rest of this entry »
