Write with More Confidence and Greater Satisfaction

How to Launch a Book the Smart Way!

You’re thinking about writing a book or maybe you’re already working on your masterpiece and plan to publish…

But you’re concerned no one will ever hear about it, even if you do find an agent and publish the traditional way. Any sane writer would be concerned about this.

That’s why you need to know the key to launching your book smart.

You. Need. A. Network.

You need a network of peers who you can reach out to and ask them to help you get the word out about your book.

The easiest way to create a network:

1) Start a blog in a specific field that relates to your writing or whatever your book is about. If you write about scary haunted stuff, maybe start a paranormal or ghost hunting blog or a blog about writing about scary haunted stuff.

Seriously, such writers can offer tips on how best to scare readers, late at night, under their covers… Ok, that’s a little creepy.

2) Build relationships with fellow bloggers who write in your niche. You can do this by commenting on their blog posts, engaging in discussions with their readers, offer to guest post or become a regular contributor.

You want to become an overall valuable member of their community. It sounds like work, I know, but it’s also very rewarding, and not just for material reasons, you will build lasting friendships you’ll treasure.

3) Support your fellow bloggers whenever you can. This is easy, they’re always trying to get the word out about their latest blog posts, infographics, and well, you guessed it, book launches!

4) Ask them to support you. When it’s time to launch your book you’ll have a reliable network of bloggers and readers who are ready, willing and able to help you get the word out.

It’s never been as important to network, and frankly, it’s never been as easy to reach as many like-minded people as it is now.

Aspiring Authors

Even if you haven’t started a book yet you should start networking, and honestly, you’ll be hard pressed to find a quicker way to do it than blogging.

Established Authors

Even if you’re an established author who has published several books already, you still need a growing network to launch your next book.

For example, my friend, Jeff Goins, who has already launched a national bestseller is launching his latest book with the help of his network. We are bloggers, who, as a group, have enormous reach. (Of course, it doesn’t hurt that his books are awesome.)

In fact, Jeff’s latest book Real Artists Don’t Starve is now available for preorder.

See what I just did? And, I’m not finished. He’s become a good friend, so…


If you pre-order Jeff’s book by 11:59 PST June 6, 2017, you’re eligible to receive three special bonuses worth over $200.

Bonus #1: The Real Artists Don’t Starve Online Course ($100)

In this 12-part video course, Jeff teaches how to make a living off your art, elaborating on the principles in the book and sharing his own knowledge and experience.

Bonus #2: All the Expert Interview Transcripts

Learn from the hundreds of experts and Thriving Artists Jeff interviewed during the research of this book.

Bonus #3: Exclusive Community Access

Get special access to a private Facebook group where Jeff will answer your questions regularly and you can connect with others reading the book.

To claim these bonuses:

1.Go to THIS LINK.

2.Follow the instructions on the page

3.Enter your email and receipt number

4.Collect your bonuses

It’s that easy!

Start building your network today.

That way, once you’re ready to launch your book you’ll have a network of bloggers like Jeff has, ready to share your work with the world. With the world, I say!

When you get started you’ll discover it’s not that difficult, because blogging is all about networking, while providing quality content for readers.

Have you already started a blog? If so, share your link to your blog in the comments. If you haven’t started a blog yet, do you plan on starting one soon? If so, what will it be about?

  • Karen Sargent

    Thanks, Bryan! I just pre-ordered Jeff’s book. I participated in one of his webinars about a year ago and learned so much about how to make my blog work for me. I’m still learning, but I can definitely say my April 4 debut book launch was a success because of my blog and loyal followers. I write inspirational women’s fiction, so my blog is for moms: karensargentbooks.com/blog

  • Judy Peterman Blackburn

    Hi Bryan,
    You are right, I need a network. I get scared that I won’t be able to keep up if I once get started. I know there are others out there with the same thoughts.

    I have two blogs. My first one is about my life with horses at purplesagewesternridinggear.com My new blog is about my writing. I started a series of how I came about being a writer. judy-blackburn.com I’m posting weekly at both blogs, or at least trying to.

    Thank you 🙂

  • Laurie Turner

    Thanks for the helpful blog! Lauriesnowturner.com

  • A.S. Akkalon

    I write fantasy novels and I’ve started a blog as part of my online presence at https://www.asakkalon.com. My blog is more humorous than my novel, and touches on reading, writing, cats, dragons and terrible life advice. I have my doubts how much it will help me when I finally publish a book, but it has helped me make friends with some wonderful people and has been totally worthwhile just for that.

    • It looks to me like you’re already doing it, networking. Book Club Mom is a good example on your latest blog post. Keep it up, because networking works like a snowball, but I know how it can create doubt as it does take time to create these relationships.

      • A.S. Akkalon

        I really appreciate you taking the time to check out my blog. I’ll keep working on making new online friends – at least there’s no particular rush because my first book won’t be out for some time.

    • Reyna Favis

      I also blog humor https://reynafavis.wordpress.com/ I am subscribing to your blog. Give mine a try and maybe we’ll have a love connection.

      • A.S. Akkalon

        Hi, Reyna! Very nice to meet you. I’ll definitely check out your blog.

  • I own a crime resource blog for crime writers and readers, but I could always use more subscribers. http://suecoletta.com

  • samcarter44

    Not sure how much this will help with publishing a book, but I’ve made some great friends through my blog on Christian topics. https://alisarussell.wordpress.com/ It’s also helped me write my own story and helped me with my faith so it’s been a great way for me to express the words I can’t say.

  • Stasie Tillman

    You make such an important point here. I wish I’d known this a year ago as a fledgling blogger getting numerous rejections from agents and publishers. I would’ve focused on developing my blog. I did eventually, by default, lol. But I would’ve liked to have spent my time more intelligently then. Check out my faith & lifestyle blog http://www.astoiclife.com where I write about the journey of learning to be stable through all the chaos and busyness of life. I encourage moms to practice self-care and to maintain a mind, body, and spirit balance.

    Hi Bryan. Thanks for the opportunity to share my blog on your site. It’s http://www.lifeandwhim.com. It’s mostly about the joy of living a purposeful and intentional life in the beautiful small town of Traverse City, Michigan. I had my first book published last summer (business non-fiction for lawyers) and working on number 2, which should be released next summer. I also have a blog, http://www.simplystatedblog.com, that is geared toward lawyers and legal marketing professionals. Life and Whim is my passion project and Simply Stated is my blog that supports my professional endeavours. Thanks again – always inspired by your work!

  • Great post Bryan 🙂 I’ve discovered that by consistently sharing what I’ve been learning about storytelling and self-publishing, has helped me grow in the craft of writing as well as introduced me to so many wonderful people I most likely wouldn’t have met otherwise. I interview and share thoughts on stories on the blog and podcast over at my website, http://www.lornafaith.com. Thanks for encouraging us to share a little more about ourselves… and bring us out of our caves to connect with others Bryan! BTW, I Love what you’re doing to help writers stay inspired…. thank you 🙂

    I’ve been blogging since 2010. It’s been a critical component to my success with my books and with my freelance career. http://www.TheWriteConversation.com. But I have to say this, NO ONE does it better than Postive Writer. I never miss a post!

    • Amber Schamel

      Edie, I follow your blog and it has invaluable information as well!

      • EdieMelson

        Thank you Amber! You made my day!

  • I’ve recently started a blog at my own little site: http://www.galwithgloves.com First thing most notice about me are the gloves I wear. I wear gloves them often, due to rheumatoid arthritis, so why not make it part of my writer brand? I am still in the “sorting out my blog focus” stage as I work up the courage to pull stories out of my mind and heart out through my damaged hands. Hope you enjoy!

    I publish a weekly devotional blog. http://www.thekingdomthinking.blogspot.com. This has been ongoing since 2012. Thanks for letting me share.

  • Your inspire contest is what lit the fire under my feet to finally get the blog of my dreams going. http://www.rachelrumbelow.com. I thank you so much for that.

    My husband and I ran an indie film company together and I was always behind the scenes. I was happy that way, my husband and I were a great team. Unfortunately, he passed away last year and at first I didn’t know what to do with myself.

    I started a makeshift blog that was anonymous to get my feelings out in that first year (survivingwidowhood.blogspot.ca) but as I have evolved and grown with my grief I have come to a place where I am ready to be me, out in the open. In the front lines.

    No more behind the scenes for me. Writing communities like this are so valuable and seeing all of our incredible and unique stories is so inspiring. Thank you for what you do!

  • Caroline Sciriha

    I’ve just started a writing blog aimed at teenage writers: https://carolinesciriha.wordpress.com/ I’m a teacher of English by profession and have come across creative and talented students who already show an impressive ability to tell a tale, but lack basic knowledge of craft. I hope to fill that gap and share what I’ve learnt, as well as give them a platform where they can upload their work for their peers to read and discuss.

    Hi! to begin with, I was going to click on every link. But it was after 10.00 pm when I started–so decided to defer to later. I am very thankful to Bryan for this opportunity to share my blog with others. I’d taken a sabbatical from blog posting while trying to determine the direction I wanted to take in establishing my writing career. Bryan’s invitation to share my blog with his readers was the catalyst I needed to relaunch my blog. Here’s the link: http://areednotbroken.blogspot.co.uk
    I hope some of you will find it encouraging, even amusing at times.

    • Margie Hord

      Like your title. Congrats for sticking with it, the novel, that is. I totally understand your difficulty on deciding on a focus.

  • Margie Hord

    My blog is, so far, focused a lot on crosscultural living. http://margiehord.com/

    • Dalletta Olena Reed

      Margie, I appreciate your blog. How can i follow it? In the meantime, I’ll add your website to my favourites.

  • Thanks for the opportunity to share! My blog is about healing and real life struggles- http://www.beautifullybrokenliving.com

    Ironing the Preacher’s Shirts: Lessons, Laughs, and Love behind the Scenes at the Preacher’s House gives my readers insight into how the Lord is working in my life. I am quite transparent in my writing, and it’s great fun. I’ve recently committed to writing one blog a week. Sometimes, near the end of the week, I begin to panic. However, the Lord has given me material every time! I’m nearly finished with a book manuscript, an inspirational look at the power of praise. Although the topic isn’t identical to my blog, my style and motivation are the same: a closer walk with the Lord.
    I hope some of your readers will enjoy my blog.

    https://thecatswhiskersonline.co.uk/paul-balm-column/ Not sure it counts as a blog, it’s more a series of articles I’ve written over the years about my local ice hockey club (the Nottingham Panthers hence the name) or ice hockey in general.

  • Rebekah S Fiore

    Great idea to share blogs and I will def explore. I write whatever comes to my mind as I don’t have a particular subject and write when i can. As English isn’t my first language and writing blog helps me to improve my written works. https://htnsl.wordpress.com/2017/05/18/head-shave-for-cancer-charity/

  • Jane Rucker

    Great post! As an editor and coach for more than 12 years I’ve helped lots of authors get published. That’s the easy part. Getting out there and selling copies is the more difficult undertaking. Blogging and networking are essential to a book’s ultimate success. Thanks for sharing!

    Interesting post. I have been following for several months and almost ready to start thinking about publishing. My blog is a variety of posts on things in my life besides writing. http://dwaneknott.com.

  • Stan Stinson

    My blog is called Peculiar Perspective because that is what it started out as but took a detour for some local school board / political issues and for the last 6 months or so has been on an unscheduled, undefined hiatus, primarily due to my day job, where I have only posted a couple of posts. I want to get started back but am trying to understand what I should focus on when I do. http://blog.stanstinson.com
