So you wrote a novel. Now what? One of the things you will need to do is market your book. Part of marketing requires you to send your book and information about yourself to bloggers, reviewers, interviewers, etc.
The process can be made a bit simpler if you prepare a publicity package before hand. This way when each person asks for these items you will have them all in one place.
Attached each of the following in a separate document and place in a file on your computer:
Author Bio – Give the readers a little personal information about yourself. They want to get to know you!
Photo – Yes your readers want to see what you look like! Your relationship becomes more personal when they can put a face with the name.
Book Blurb – Set up a document with a blurb about each one of your books. (The back cover blurb works perfect for this).
Cover Art – Save each of your covers into a separate file.
Excerpt – Save an excerpt from each book into separate documents.
How to connect – Create a document with all the information about how to connect with you on the internet: email addresses, facebook pages, twitter accounts, etc.
Buy Links – Create a document with information/links on where to purchase each of your books.
ISBN – Create a document with your ISBNs.
Trailer Links – Create a document with each of your book trailer links.
If you have these items saved on your computer, you will be able to easily access them when the information is requested by a reviewer or blogger. You may consider creating a document also, that has frequently asked questions and answers.
Hope this helps you as much as it has helped me!
