Do you want to attract more readers but hate promoting your books?

Book marketing doesn’t have to be something you dread. In fact, you can have fun marketing your fiction books. How? With Story Marketing you focus on sharing your story, instead of selling your books.

In this class, you‘ll learn seven exciting ways to attract more readers by helping your audience get to know and want to spend more time with your story characters. This will motivate them to want to buy and read your books.

This class builds upon the class Story Marketing: How to Have Fun Marketing Your Fiction Book. In that class, writers learned the basic principles and steps to succeed at Story Marketing. In the rest of the Story Marketing series, each class shares different Story Marketing techniques to help you put it into action and catapult the number of readers hungry for your books.
