Get 100+ laser-focused social media prompts and learn EXACTLY what to post to build your audience and sell your books.

When it's time to promote your book, it can feel like you're totally alone. Where do you even start?

Most authors start marketing through social media. It makes sense. You’re already on it to share bits of your life with family and friends. So naturally, it’s the first place that you turn to in order to find your readers.

But how do you make that shift from just messing around on social media for fun to using it professionally to promote your books? And what do you post about? You’re a writer! Not a social media expert. How do you even begin to reach an audience online?

Every day millions of readers discover their new favorite books on social media.


Is yours one of them?

By reaching your audience on social media for your book launch, you’ll have the power to:

Do these problems sound familiar? Do you…

After years of helping picture book, middle grade, and young adult authors reach their audience, the result is…

An easy-to-follow, launch and pre-launch social media framework that gives you a crystal clear, *can’t fail* roadmap for building an engaged audience of readers without wasting your precious writing time.

Organized into 5 sections, this pdf guides you through the social media posts you need to promote your book. You’ll learn how to…



Getting to Know You
How do you build a fanbase when your book isn’t published yet? Your unique personality and perspective are what make you standout online. In this section, you’ll find prompts on how to connect with readers (and your fellow authors) over shared interests in writing, reading, and the fascinating hobbies that make you light up.


Introduce Readers to Your Unpublished Story
Just because your book isn’t out yet doesn’t mean you can’t talk about it! Sharing behind-the-scenes content about your story is a great way to attract the right readers who are most likely to purchase and enjoy it.


Promote Pre-Order Sales
Many books are available for pre-order a few months before the book’s release date. Pre-orders help create a sense of anticipation. Readers who pre-order typically share their excitement online through conversations about the book with the author (you!) and other readers who share a love for similar stories. They become a recommendation engine even before they’ve read the book! Prompts in this section show you how to engage those readers and trigger pre-order sales.


Convert Followers to Buyers
How do you convert social media followers to genuine book buyers? Some readers are willing to buy straight from a tweet or post, but there’s no guarantee your audience will catch every one of yours. But you can use an email list to overcome this barrier. Offering a freebie in exchange for readers’ email addresses gives you the opportunity to reach them from multiple angles (both social media and email!) when you want to invite them to fall in love with your book.


Launch Your Book to Excited Readers
It’s a thrilling moment when your book is released. Years of hard work, often alone, finally pay off as your story is released to the public. Posting about your launch is about more than introducing your book into the world. Launch content is a combination of celebrating the achievement that is your book and sharing exciting teasers that intrigue readers to pick up a copy. In this section, you’ll find prompts that help you intrigue readers and inspire them to finally pick up a copy of their own.

Plus, you get these

Or you could invest $27 in an easy-to-follow social media marketing plan (made just for kidlit and young adult writers) that provides you with the EXACT content ideas you’ll need to promote your book on social media through your pre-launch and launch phases.

Investing in yourself and your writing is a huge part of pushing your author career forward—and continuing to grow in a direction that will ultimately lead to more book reviews from readers and more book deals from publishers.

Especially once you have found the right book marketing strategy for YOU.
