Planning Your Book Launch Party

You’ve got a book (or it’s this close), and you’re wondering how to commemorate the big occasion, make a big splash, and sell some books, right?

I’ve launched almost thirty of my own books so far, and I’ve done everything from have a huge party to, well, almost nothing.

What should you do?

For your first (perhaps only) or one of your first books, I encourage you to celebrate BIG! Publishing a book is no small accomplishment! If there was ever a time to throw a party, it’s for the launch of your book.



The Day of the Big Event

Now don’t shoot the messenger, but your launch party is simply the beginning. Marketing your book lasts for the rest of your life, so settle in for the long haul. And remember to enjoy it! Being an author is great fun!
