About This Class

Your audience doesn’t want another email from you asking them to buy your book. But they do want to immerse themselves in a great story. In Story Marketing: How to Have Fun Marketing Your Fiction Book, you'll learn how to attract more readers by helping them further explore the characters, setting, and other aspects of your story to make them hungry for your books.

You’ll learn lots of Story Marketing ideas like:

  • Having one of your characters write an advice column answering your readers’ questions
  • Setting up a Twitter account for your character and tweeting as if you’re them
  • Sharing photos of the location where your story is set
  • Asking your readers to suggest which actors should play your characters once the book is made into a movie

In this class you'll learn the four easy steps to quickly create your own Story Marketing content that will skyrocket the number of readers passionate for your books.

Story Marketing is more enjoyable for your readers to consume. It’s more fun for you, the author, to create. It also helps you write better stories. If you’re tired of traditional book marketing and you’re ready to attract more readers, it’s time to try out Story Marketing.

This is amazing, I was always overwhelmed by the thought of marketing my book... But now I'm looking forward to it... Can't wait to get my characters to life!
This is a good class that gives a nice overall introduction to the idea of story marketing.
