My assignment for Book Editing class is to go to a book store and search online to find out how books are marketed, to search out a niche for a book, and gather market information on that niche. It will be a hardship but I will be going to a bookstore today. Since it is such a stressful assignment Vicki and Beth have volunteered to accompany me to make sure I don’t become overwhelmed. J
In all seriousness, I’m excited to do this as I think it will be a good way for me to consider market research as part of the books I am writing and hopefully promoting. Going to a bookstore is never a bad thing and seeking out how I might promote one of my books and where it might get placed in a bookstore is a good thing.
I’m going to focus on marketing my Moon Affirmations book. I will be self-publishing this soon I think. It will be good to make sure the market research I’ve already done hasn’t changed much. It will also be good for me to develop some sales tools for when it is published. It might work nicely for developing a web site or other avenues of promotion.
