Reading Time: 2 minutes

It’s easy to become overwhelmed when launching a new book. It can become all-consuming until the point where it seems your entire world revolves around this one book. But, fear not! It doesn’t have to be this way.

Learn from my experience and find a way to have a successful book launch, and still have a life. Your job, family commitments and whatever else in your daily life don’t have to prevent you from book marketing– or from being a successful author. This is especially important during this time of year, when family and holidays should be your main focus. You just have to be prepared to plan ahead.

You Can Have A Life and Launch Your New Book

The best book marketing is done over time, meaning that you plan to do a few things a month to keep your book in front of new readers, and keep your book promotion alive. Book promotion and marketing takes time, but it doesn’t have to take all of your time. You still can have a life outside of your launch!

When it comes to launching your new book, planning is key, as well as being honest with yourself about how much you can do (or want to do).Tackle the things you love and outsource the rest. If outsourcing isn’t in the budget, then plan to spend some time learning, or set the strategy aside for now until you have time.
