HOW TO SELL A NOVEL
How do I sell my novel? I’m tired of having a garage full of books.
How do I build my author brand? I don’t know what platforms to use or how to use them.
How do I make a website and manage social media? It takes so much time.
How do I book signings and speaking events? Will those help me sell books?
Does this sound like you?
Many writers get stuck when it comes time to sell their book and market themselves as an author. They’re sick of having a garage full of unsold books, and feel that their writing career will never truly take off.
We help authors to launch their writing careers by helping them to develop a brand, create a marketing platform, build out their social media and website, and develop strategies for booking speaking engagements so they can get their message out into the world. In short, we help authors find their fans and get sold.

I just want to be an author. I don’t want to have to market myself.
We hear this from authors time and time again–and while it’s a common feeling, not wanting to market yourself is simply an unrealistic expectation in today’s publishing marketplace.
How do authors market themselves well?
The reality of the publishing marketplace today dictates that your publishing house will give you some marketing support. They will also expect you to do some work on your own. How much support and what work will vary from publishing house to publishing house, but one thing will always remain true:
It’s never too soon for an author to start marketing him or herself.
But how? Where should an author spend marketing dollars and invest marketing time? In the Writing Gym’s comprehensive author program, we help you to build out your author brand and find your audience as you move toward publication. We show you what makes you attractive to gain publishers and readers and walk you through the process step-by-step. You’ll still have to market yourself, but you’ll have the guidance to get you where you want to go.

The Writing Gym Difference
Here at the Writing Gym we want to get to know you as an author so we can help you build an author platform that’s right for you.
There is no cookie-cutter solution to marketing because each author has their own unique identity and brand. That’s why no book or online course is going to teach you what you need to know when it comes to advertising–and that’s why the Writing Gym works closely with each of our authors to walk them through the entire marketing process. From website building to social media presence to booking speaking engagements, we develop a uniquely tailored marketing strategy so you can find your readers and sell your book.
Are you ready to stop wasting time and money on PR agents, website designers, and marketing consultants that don’t ever help you sell more books? Are you ready to have the expertise and support you need to market and sell not only your novel, but yourself as an author?
The Writing Gym is accepting select writers to join our community of successful, published authors.
If you’re serious about selling a novel and starting your writing career, and ready to make the commitment that it takes, book a call with a member of our team. We’ll spend about an hour talking about where you are, where you’d like to go, and how you can get there.
