Show Notes

Planning your book launch? Listen in to hear what you should or shouldn’t do when leading a book launch. 

Welcome to Your Best Writing Life, an extension of the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference held in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mts of NC. I’m your host Linda Goldfarb. Each week I bring tips and strategies from writing and publishing industry experts to help you excel in your craft. I’m so glad you’re listening in. During this episode, you’ll learn The Do’s and Don’ts of Leading a Book Launch Team. 

My industry expert is Karen Sargent. After the launch of her debut novel, Karen discovered how overwhelming launching a book can be and never passed an opportunity to join a launch team to support her fellow authors. Soon authors began asking her to lead their teams. When a publisher advised her to start a book launch side hustle, she did. Since 2019, Karen has helped Christian authors of all sizes—from indie to authors with big publishers—launch their books. A retired educator, Karen gets her fix by teaching writing workshops and coaching aspiring authors. 

We cover the following questions:
When it comes to launching a book, what are some common mistakes authors make?
What are some best practices authors can implement to increase their launch team's success?
