What every author needs
The one area most authors seem to struggle with is with marketing – and selling(!) – their books. It is so easy to end up with a garage full of boxes but with no idea of how to get them to market. That is what AuthorCraft is all about.
The question is though, when do you start marketing your books? If your answer is ‘Once I receive them from the printers’ then you are already at least two months too late! At AuthorCraft we believe that you should be thinking about your marketing before you even start writing your manuscript. The first thing you need is complete clarity on who you are writing for, what is the problem they need to solve, and why they would purchase your book. If you don’t have complete clarity on this, you might find yourself writing the wrong book!
The AuthorCraft Academy is for you if:
- You are thinking about writing a book but need clarity on how to target it to your chosen niche market.
- You need impartial facts to understand all of the options open to you
- You need help to raise your profile in advance of launching your book
- You need help in using social media tools to build your followers and start creating momentum.
- You need recommendations to creative professionals to help with book design, layout, editing and proofreading
- You want to be inspired and learn from other authors who have been successful.
What you will get from the AuthorCraft academy
You will receive all the benefits of AuthorCraft no matter where you live. All of our training and support is delivered online and through webinars.
You will receive a comprehensive curriculum of practical modules covering every aspect of writing, editing, design and origination, to the production process and then to building a following and marketing your book. They will be delivered by regular email modules and supported by Zoom Training Calls. No travel required!
In addition to our long-established author networking event in London, we are in the process of forming Regional AuthorCraft events around the country. These will provide hands-on help from authors who will facilitate the training modules in monthly workshop sessions. Through all of this, we will continue to recognise our authors and invite them to share their journeys and what they learnt on the way.
The Academy will launch at our next AuthorCraft event in the Institute of Directors in Pall Mall on Tuesday 24th of September. Our London event is on the fourth Tuesday of every month except August and December.
Subscribing to the AuthorCraft Academy is just £10 per month. There is no fixed term and you can cancel at any time. You will receive by email our 26-week curriculum, one weekly module at a time. Each module will contain training videos, links to the next Zoom training call, articles, downloads and templates. You also have access to unlimited Q&As by email.
