Marketing for Authors
How I Went From ZERO Readers to Bestselling Author in a Year
How I Went From Zero Readers to
Bestselling Author In Less Than a Year
Feel like you’re not cut out for promoting your books?
Have no idea how to begin? Need to find more readers besides your Mom?
Back in 2013, I was right where you are. I had 0 book sales and 0 readers. Unsure where to go, what to do.
I tried every option out there. Book tours, publicists, and social media for starters, followed by networking at conferences and using book promo sites. During my self-publishing journey, I learned what worked and what didn’t.
Now I’m sharing those things with you.
In this 7-module course, I review everything from social media to newsletters to getting more reviews. You also get 2 freebie bonuses, which are an extensive listing of Facebook Groups for Authors and Books, and another comprehensive listing of book promotion sites (both free and paid options). How cool is that?
“This is a very readable, well-organized course which gives self-publishing writers an enormous amount of help in increasing their readership.” — Author Richard Hernaman Allen

Elaine Calloway has been telling stories her entire life. In 2013, she took the plunge into the murky self-publishing waters and has never looked back. Incorporating years of writing experience, speaking at conferences, and trial/error of various methods to write books, get readers and self publish her two series, she went from 0 readers to bestselling author and 1000+ readers in less than 18 months.
Every one of her books has earned out its costs, and her ebook royalties have paid for numerous writing conferences and retreats in places like New York City, San Francisco, and more. Often sought out to speak on self-publishing and marketing, Elaine has shared her knowledge with various writing chapters across the Southeast USA as well as DragonCon, the world's largest multi-media, popular culture convention. Helping authors reach their full potential is her passion! For more info, visit her website at www.howtoselfpublishyournovel.com and www.elainecalloway.com.
