The new year will soon be upon us and you no doubt want to make a renewed commitment to yourself, to change or eliminate addictions, stop negative thinking, and avoid inertia when it comes to how you lose weight and keep it off, balance the checkbook, switch jobs, and get your relationship on the right course. Or maybe it is the year you change one habit, whatever it is. And it is the year you will support your commitment to being an author who gets published and takes control of your book publicity and book marketing.
Perhaps this book marketing and book publicity tool kit will help you make 2013 a banner year: http://bookmarketingbuzzblog.blogspot.com/2012/12/book-marketing-book-publicity-tool-kit.html But no matter the tools and resources at your disposal, nothing will happen until you make a choice to move forward.
For 2013, commit to:
· Promoting yourself every day, no matter how small or big the task is.
· Marketing your book with a purpose and a passion that drives you to go the extra mile every day.
· Improving your base of knowledge as it relates to the book industry.
· Hiring someone to help you do the things you don’t like to do, don’t know how to do, and don’t have time to do.
· Doing three things you say you would like to do but do not seem to find the time to do, such as blog, utilize social media more often, or revamp your Web site.
· Keep writing more books – never put the pen down.
· Building your brand.
· Networking more than you have.
· Making your writings more marketable by creating content that people truly demand.
2013 and beyond will hopefully bring you new challenges and rewards, both as a writer and as a human being. 2012 may have had its pitfalls and triumphs but it will soon be in the rare-view mirror. May your new year bring you happiness, health, fulfillment, and a hunger to want to do more, learn more, and share more.
