How to Launch a Best-Selling Christian Book Free Saturday April 20, 2013 on Amazon
It is an exciting time to publish a new book. I have published four, and there is nothing more rewarding than seeing our brand-new book in print or e-book, whether it’s our first, second, or fifth. When we go to Amazon, Barnes, & Noble, and other websites, we want to see our rankings validate the long hours we’ve put into writing our book.
The John 3:16 Marketing Network is designed for Christian authors to receive more exposure on book launches. As difficult and challenging as the writing process is, marketing is even harder. The John 3:16 Marketing Network does exactly what the name implies: It networks Christian authors so they can help each other with book launches on social networking sites via email, twitter and Facebook.
In March we added an official launch page for the John3:16 Marketing Network at http://John316MarketingNetwork.com. Launches last from the 1st to the 16th of every month now and are treated more like book showcases or book promotions. This allows time for a book to receive maximum exposure through the network and hopefully rank in the top 100 best-selling books for its category over two weeks.
I want to encourage all Christian authors to help one another in marketing. I hope to add about thirty new members and have lowered the joining fee to $10 until we achieve that goal. The only requirements to join are that you believe in John 3:16 and have a website or blog. For more information, visit http://www.lorilynroberts.com/john_3_16_marketing_network.html.
Please check us out and spread the word. We are on Facebook, have a blog, and private forum channel. The more writers who are involved, the more impact we can have on the world with Christian literature.
Through the John 3:16 Marketing Network, I have “met” many wonderful Christian authors whom I would not have known otherwise. Those friendships and relationships are priceless. You never know who will end up where down the road, and if love is the motivating factor, I believe we can become a dynamic force and new model for Christian publishing.
Because of recent changes in how we launch books, I have updated the book How to Launch a Best-Selling Christian Book. It will be free on Amazon Saturday, April 21.
