So you’re an indie author. You’ve taken the time and effort to write that novel or book that’s been inside of you since as far back as you can recall. You’ve even paid a professional editor to comb through it to make sure it’s worthy to sell. It’s there on Amazon and Barnes & Noble for a mere few dollars—unless you want the paperback. Nothing beats that feeling of holding your very own published work in your hands.
So what comes next? How do you, the author, get word to readers around the world that your work is available, ready to be read and reviewed? If you have deep pockets, you’ll have no worries. Just hire a team of marketers and let them go to work for you. They seem to know what they’re doing, right?
Okay. So maybe your pockets aren’t that deep. Perhaps you are like a million other indie authors across the globe who cannot afford to hire that marketing team. What will you do? To do nothing spells certain doom for the hard work that went into your published novel or book. Sure, you may sell a few copies through Twitter or Facebook. You might even find a handful of readers through your own blog. But the reality of the situation says that falls short of your expectations.
Here’s a suggestion: Tap into the incredible resource known as Rave Reviews Book Club.
Just what is Rave Reviews Book Club? Well, I’m glad you asked. Rave Reviews Book Club is a growing community of readers and writers who all share the same goal: To support one another on this amazing journey as authors.
It’s a simple yet brilliant concept: Join the club, read at least four member-authored books during the course of the year, review these books, Tweet about these books, and support the authors. In return, you, as a member of the community, will find this support returned to you.
There is a catch though. You get out what you put in. If your support of others is weak, you can expect the same in return. However, if you choose to really dig in and promote your fellow members, you will most certainly find strong support for your own work.
What is this support of which I am talking? Members buy one another’s books—that means sales. Those sales translate into reviews. Reviews mean more sales—if the buzz is strong. But that’s not all. Each and every month at Rave Reviews Book Club, three books are selected as Books of the Month. There is also a Member of the Month, Spotlight Author, Member of the Week, and a #PUSHTUESDAY honoree. There are blog tours, Book Trailer Parties, and Blog Block Parties.
Did I mention the Rave Waves Blog Talk Radio programs? There are currently nine live radio shows produced by Rave Reviews Book Club. And guess what? They are open only to the RRBC membership. These thirty minute programs allow members/authors a showcase for their work; an opportunity to introduce yourselves to the RRBC membership.
Rave Reviews Book Club is here for one purpose and one purpose only: To Profile, Promote & Propel the careers of indie authors. If this sounds interesting to you, stop by the web site and take a look around!
