JA Konrath: Your Book Marketing Plan Won't Work


JA Konrath is back, being his uusal grumpy self. He's talking about marketing again, and not in a very encouraging way.

And yet... read this.

Maybe it is simpler than people think. Maybe it really has to do with reaching out and making fans. And well... with luck. But we can nudge that luck a little.

See for yourself.

A gem from the comments:

I can write, without straining myself, about 370k words per year. About 1k a day that's worth keeping.

And he makes a comfortable living from this.

That is ALL it takes.

Well, and a fan base, and a genre with lots of readers, and some judicious marketing. But it starts with writing 1k per day.

Slay those words. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Having many books out there is the best marketing.
See what sells and write more of that.

That's a very solid strategy. emoticon

I don't have enough books out yet for a good statistical analysis, though. emoticon emoticon
