Ok so you think you have a good idea for a story do you? Is your story unique? Is it something people will read? Maybe you want to write your life story. If that’s the case is your life interesting? Do you have the ability to make it humourous or dramatic? You need to grab attention.
The best way to initially grab everyone’s attention is with the Title. Your title should be something which relates to your content and something which makes a statement. This statement should grab people’s attention and have them wanting to know more. Hence book sales!
Don’t go bananas doing too much else about getting your book onto the shelves until you have written at least half of your book amd have the whole thing mapped out, chapter by chapter. You need to know exactly where you are going with it and to get halfway through writing it and have spent lots of money before it is finished can leave you exasperated. So before you spend anything on advertising, printing or anything else make sure you are almost ready to go to print.
Whatever you do, don’t tell everyone anything about your book until it is ready to be published whether you are self publishing or sending it to a publisher. Keep it to yourself! It’s ok to tell anyone you are writing a book but that’s it!
When I wrote my book I knew exactly where I was going with it and had done my homework but I will tell you more soon.
Stay tuned for more….. and good luck.
