Completed your first draft? Do this next.
Once you've completed your first draft, publication of your first novel is a real and actual possibility! Which means that it's time to take the first step towards the marketing of your novel, and create a launch page.
Launch pages are a great way to collect potential purchasers, while sharing some information about your novel. You want your launch page to include the title, blurb (short description or sales copy about your book), and a place where interested parties can be notified when your book is released.
Want a real-life example? Check out one that I made for a recent release here.
Below is a video that shows you how to create a free launch page in only six minutes.
Note: The video tutorial uses MailerLite, which is a newsletter provider that I highly recommend. Here is a link if you'd like to sign up with them for free.
