Preparation is essential when entering into a book publicity campaign to promote a printed book or e-book — you’re wise to begin planning at least six months before your expected publication date. In addition to talking to book publicists like us, it’s wise to start familiarizing yourself with the various promotional opportunities that exist. On the top of the list: media coverage.
Over relying on one or two tactics is seldom as effective as a multi-faceted campaign.
Any coverage you receive from print media (newspapers and magazines) ends up online, as do most TV interviews today, and podcast episodes typically live forever online. Nothing matches the power and influence of earned traditional media coverage. It provides authors credibility, builds author brands and can spark book sales.
