From December 11th - Jan 11th I ran a Publishizer Campaign, to crowdsource the first few copies of my book. The platform Publishizer was created to give authors a chance to get readers for their books as well as land publishing deals. The campaign runs for 30 days and Publishers can show interest and individuals can purchase book copies.
I was able to successfully gain the interest of two publishers and sell 67 copies of the book. I have also ultimately decided to move forward with self publishing my book.
My editor Mellany Paynter is the one who told me about the platform and set up the campaign for me. She has been a great support system and coach throughout my book journey. Find out more about her and her services at www.mellanypaynter.com/
Although the campaign is now over, the journey has only began.
The next steps in this adventure is to get my book up on Amazon, print, sign and shipped to the first batch of readers.
My original plans were to only do an ebook and a print book. After many requests I will also be doing the audio version of the book.
My book launch party, and first stop on my book tour will be happening in NYC on February 21st.
I am super excited and can't wait for the next steps of this journey to unfold itself.
Thank you everyone for your support!
