I just took my first vacation in three years. Just as vacations are meant to do, I got some much needed rest and relaxation.

But also — thanks to a change of routine and distance from my day-to-day to-do’s — I also had an incredible brainstorm. And I think my new idea is going to help many authors breakthrough the book marketing roadblock.

As you may know, I offer authors book marketing courses. You may have seen that one of these is a coaching workshop where I work directly with authors to guide them through the book marketing process.

While on vacation I was thinking about the coaching course and taking some notes. On the same page, I was also noting some ideas for marketing my next book.

And that’s when the brainstorm struck — kind of like that old “You got peanut butter in my chocolate; You got chocolate in my peanut butter,” Reese’s commercial — if you’re old enough to remember it! (This isn’t the exact one, but you get the idea.)

I thought: What if I combined the two? What if I market my book right along with the authors taking my coaching course?

As I pondered this innovative idea, I wondered: Could this work? Will the authors like the idea? What will the authors gain from this format that they cannot get any other way?

What Authors Will Gain From Innovative New Book Marketing Coaching Workshop

I jotted down a list of what authors can gain from this unique learning approach. The benefits I thought of include:

  1. Authors will overcome the crippling “paralysis of analysis,” in other words, constantly second guessing themselves about marketing their books.
  2. Authors will surmount the self-defeating missteps that are all too common in book marketing today — where there are so many voices sharing their opinions and pulling us in dozens of directions.
  3. Authors will work alongside an experienced and seasoned marketer so they will not only learn how to do it, but also see how it’s done.
  4. Authors will gain razor-sharp focus and motivation to take every step along the book marketing journey
  5. Authors will accelerate their book marketing steps — so they stop wasting valuable time.
  6. Authors will learn to embrace, even love, book marketing when they start to see actual results from their efforts.

What do you think? What could you gain from this exclusive and unique learning opportunity?

Unique New Coaching Course Will Launch Soon — Secure Your Seat Today!

Since my brainstorm, I’ve outlined and planned the entire course. It’s going to be jam-packed with everything you need to create the most effective and powerful book marketing system for your book.

Among the truly inspirational additions to the workshop are a one-on-one private online chat with me about your book, an over-the-shoulder step-by-step view of my book marketing activities, and a private Facebook group to gain insight and support from other authors in the course.

Here’s just some of what you’ll gain in this workshop:

  • One-on-one private online chat session with me about your book’s marketing potential
  • Direct email access to me for fast answers to all of your book marketing questions
  • Regular updates about my book marketing activities and results
  • Detailed author questionnaire to help you target all of your promotional opportunities
  • 12 weekly deep dive lessons into critical book marketing topics, including tutorials, worksheets, videos, and resources
  • Daily to-do’s to help you build book marketing momentum and discipline
  • Motivational tips to keep you fired up and focused on your book marketing
  • Six group challenges to inspire you and jump-start your book marketing tasks
  • Private Facebook group where you’ll collaborate, share, and gain support from other authors
  • Weekly bonus materials for early-bird registrants

Ever week of the 12-week course we will dive deep into an essential book marketing topic — from strategy to social media to publicity.

Hi Karen:

Would this course be suitable for if I published my book 3 years ago?
If so, how much will the course cost?



Karen Jonson February 12, 2015 at 9:53 am

Hi Suzanne, Great questions. Yes, it would be suitable for you book if you want to build sales. Today, books don’t have to be new to be successfully marketed.

The course this time around will be either a one-time payment of $247 or three monthly payments of $99. You save $50 with the one-time fee. Plus, the price could go up in the future.
