It’s 14 days till my novel Below the Moon—book two in The 8th Island Trilogy—is released! I am freaking out a bit. 14 days might sound like lots of time, but it’s not ladies and gentlemen. It’s not. 14 days is a breath! It’s going to fly by, and I have so much to do!
I know, I know. I’m being dramatic!
Seriously though, there is real stress here lol. As an “indie” author, aka “independent” author, the buck stops with me. I feel the pressure to do everything I can to launch my book into the world as successfully as I can, just like I did with my kids at the beginning of the school year one month ago.
I feel this is a fitting time to update the people in my life of exactly what goes into a book launch. This also serves to help me organize myself, which helps with stress (win-win), AND can be a tool for other writers and authors looking for a handy checklist (win-win-win). PLUS (!!), I am a graphic design junkie, so this proved another opportunity to make something pretty! Yahoo!
Fill out your name and email below and I’ll send you my Book Launch Checklist that outlines the must-do activities for:
- 6 months pre-launch
- 3 months pre-launch
- 1 month pre-launch
- Launch day, and
BONUS: I’ve included a hand BOOK PARTY PREP section in this checklist too.
If you’re an writer-author, download and enjoy!!
If you’re a friend or family member of mine, PLEASE DOWNLOAD AND HELP ME!
(Now that gives me an idea: Make a “Friends and Family Support Checklist to Help the Author in your Life” graphic. Stay tuned on this!!)
