I’m getting ready for blast-off! My book has been proofread and the last few errors (I hope) are being tidied up. Soon I’ll set up a pre-order campaign, when I’ll be offering a free bonus gift to everyone who pre-orders my book: a collection of photos that illustrate the journey I write about in Confessions of a Middle-Aged Runaway: An RV Travel Adventure.
I’ll be busy the next month or two putting all of the book launch pieces into place including:
- Uploading the book files to Amazon, Ingram Spark, and Smashwords.
- Taking care of the business end of things like getting a business license, credit card reader, and resale certificate.
- Writing a press release.
- Planning a launch party and marketing campaign.
I’ll also be sending my book off to reviewers and, in fact, sent off my first review copy to a book reviewer for Escapees magazine. Keeping my fingers crossed that it’s positive.
