Day 5 of the NO EXCUSES 3-Week Author Blog Challenge: My book is a little like…
Hope you had a fabulous Halloween. Can you believe there are just 2 months left in 2016? Time to buckle down and finish this year’s book marketing plan while beginning to think about what you’ll do differently in 2017!
Each day, we have a prompt upon which the authors may base their posts – or they may opt to write on the topics of their choice.
The Day 5 prompt is:
Every author wants their book to be different – to stand out in the crowd. But when it comes to selling your book, it’s also important to know what it’s similar to so that you can give people comparisons they can easily understand. For instance, who hasn’t heard Star Wars described as a Western set in space? What kinds of comparisons could you make in describing your book so that people know instantly what it – or isn’t – similar to?
