With all these pieces in place you’ll be READY to make that SPLASH with your book launch. As you can see there is a lot more to birthing a book, than just the writing of it. If you want your message to go out into the world, make an impact, get more speaking gigs, build your business or get more clients – it’s a super important component to the process. PLUS I'm sure you really want to reach MANY people with your message.
Remember the Universe aligns with your intentions AND actions. :-)
So how did you do? Add your points together for each one, and total it up. (if you scored 5 in one question you'll add 5 to your score, if you scored 2 in another you'll be adding 2...and so on)
YOUR TOTAL: _______________
Now see how you've scored. This will show how far you've come on this road to becoming a successful published author, and reflects what might still need to be done. :)
If you scored between 60 - 75:
Woohoo! You’re rocking it, and already well on the way to launching your book with a big SPLASH! Chances are you’re doing fine on your own, have a plan and are really in the flow. Your list is building nicely, your Social Media communities are really growing, and you have a lot in place to help promote your book before and during the launch. You’re a launch pad ROCKSTAR. You might want to ask yourself - is there anything more I can do that will help me make this an even bigger splash? Perhaps something from this checklist will resonate that you hadn't thought of yet. Keep up the good work!!!
If you scored between 35 – 59:
You’re on your way! Things are happening, but perhaps a bit slower than hoped. Perhaps things are a bit haphazard, lots of balls in the air with some overwhelm happening. OR you know what to do, but might be getting stuck. You ARE doing some things, so well done on that!! The key is to get the results you’re looking for and be consistent in your efforts with a clear plan. If you’re struggling and need helpthis or know you could be doing this better , I would encourage you to get support asap.
If you scored between 15 – 34:
Uh oh! Either you’re just getting started (all good here - we all have to start somewhere, right!?), or you just don’t know what you should be doing, and you might be feeling overwhelmed and unclear. The key here is to make sure you have a do-able plan. AND to get HELP! Don’t go this alone. We weren’t given a digital download when we were born or like Neo in the Matrix, of all the things we need to do to get ready to launch a book, right!? ;) Give yourself permission to be GREAT at the writing of the book, and then have someone GREAT give you the coaching and guidance you need to help you build your platform and get you prepared for your launch. Doing this isn’t a bed of roses, but with the right support, all will be well. I encourage you to reach out to me, or someone you trust to help you do that. Here’s to you making a SPLASH with your launch. You can do it!!
Phew! So much to think about right? More than you thought? It can feel like a lot.
If you’re curious about how you can get support with this, and you feel ready – I’d like to invite you to connect with me. I have different levels of support and investment available for authors – to help you on your way. Whether you need a touchstone, accountability, cheering, place to ask questions, to full on customized support to create the visibility you need, with the methods and strategies in place for you to launch your book. I really want you to have a big following for that moment when you launch your self-published book, or when you submit that proposal to a traditional publishing company.
As a seasoned radio show host I even have ways to help you get ready for radio show interviews, get interviews. AND I just LOVE helping my clients create freebie offers - either in a professional ‘done-with-you’ way to get your freebie opt-in gift done (and cool exposure with it!) or brainstorming with you around the ones you'll be creating. You don’t have to try and figure this stuff out on your own.
Just click here to set up an appointment and we’ll take it from there. There is no obligation – this is just a get to know each other conversation to see how you can have a successful book launch. The fun part is that we'll start to build your strategy. I know you'll get a lot from this chat together. Can’t wait to talk to you.
I wish you well on your journey of writing and launching your book. It’s with people like you in the world that we will influence more healing, transformationand and create happiness in a much bigger way. I’m so thrilled that I get support your journey - even if it's just this checklist!
Much love, and to your shining success!
