Here’s an excerpt from this week’s episode:
Q: Jane, what do you find is the biggest hurdle for authors when it actually comes to writing marketing copy?
A: The biggest hurdle is that authors don’t like to talk about themselves. They have a hard time of creating their persona to describe themselves in a way that’s going to get the reader to say, “Oh, I want to read their book.”
The first thing we have to remember is that the book is the product of the author; the author is really what you’re marketing. You’re marketing this person’s talent, you’re marketing this person’s wisdom, you’re marketing this person’s creativity, and so the book just happens to be that little product, that calling card. The biggest hurdle is to get the author to understand that they are marketing themselves, and not the book.
