As working authors, both of us know the increasing importance of a strong author platform and creative marketing plan. When we were publishing executives, we sat in lengthy acquisitions meetings and debated the merits of proposal submissions. Even then, questions arose with nearly every proposal about the author and the marketability of the book.
- Who is this person?
- Why is he/she an expert on this subject?
- Is the author going to be able to sell books?
- Does he/she have any public speaking experience?
- How are we going to get the word out about this title?
The questions, like the meetings, went on longer than they should. But they were valid and they still are. In today’s volatile, evolving marketplace, it’s critical that you know how to sell yourself and your book—both to the publisher and to the end reader.
