Book Launches Are Fun!

Have You Ever Been Part of a Book Launch?




Many things have changed today in world of publishing and marketing. Not long ago, you had to work with an established publisher and convince them to take on your book. The publisher would oversee the entire process of refining and producing your book and then shipping it out to distributors and bookstores. The publisher was very much in control of everything connected with the birth of “your baby.”


Today almost anyone can self-publish a book and maintain a lot of control of the process. The rise of the internet, social media and blogging have opened up new avenues for reaching out with your message and your product. But now you have to do much of the work of marketing and promotion to find a way to rise above clatter of a million voices vying for people’s attention. 

The strategy of a “Book Launch” has been born out of this.  Publishing houses as well as self-published authors form teams of bloggers and social media people to read, review and promote the book to their friends and readers. They employ contests, giveaways, Facebook Parties, Thunderclap Campaigns, and more to make it fun and attract attention. It’s wild, but also a lot of fun.

We’re doing all of these fun and innovative things during the launch of this book. We’d like to invite you to the party!

Thunderclap Campaign

“What’s a Thunderclap Campaign?”  Social media is an easy way to say something, but it’s a difficult way to be heard. Thunderclap is the first-ever crowdspeaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be mass-shared, flash mob-style, so it rises above the noise of your social networks. You choose to support the campaign with Facebook, Twitter and/or Tumblir. There's nothing else you have to do except listen for the thunder on January 20!
