Social Book Launch

Launching books at bookstores or hotels are no fun. Especially, when readers don’t turn up! Most book launches have become vanity affairs where an author invites his friends and family, and gives away copies of the book. What’s the point? The entire launch experience is limited to the people who are physically present at the venue and contribute to few photos on Facebook and twitter. Many authors have told us about this problem.
Social Book Launch is a way to reach more people by combining your book launch with Facebook’s social reach. This launch tool is unique to Notion Press and helps in building awareness about your book among readers.

Here is how it works.

  • A sales page is created for your book with all the vital components needed to spread the right message about your book to its audience.
  • Targeted readers are driven to the sales page via Email Blasts and ads on social media sites.
  • Readers who visit this page are then given the option to start reading the book by sharing the message about your book launch on Social Media to their friends. This way real people help spread the word about your book.
  • Once readers share the message, we allow them to read excerpts or sample chapters from the book before they decide to give the book a try.
  • Tip: As an author, you could also allow select readers to read the complete book online to encourage them to post a review. We usually find such campaigns get more traction than the ones with just few sample pages.

    About: Steve Catto is an old man, or at least that's what it says on his birth certificate. He was born in Yorkshire, but his parents took him to Australia when he was six years old and he grew up there, sometimes racing cars across the desert.

    He was never very good at school, but the one thing he did learn was how to learn, and he started writing programs for the computer at the local university, much to the disdain of his teachers who told him that he would ‘never make a living out of that rubbish'. In his late teens he returned to the UK, and his parents followed him – which wasn't what he wanted because he was hoping to get away from them. His first proper job was in the computer department of an infamous Oxford publishing company, and he subsequently went on to write software for electricity control systems, and simulators for the military. He started to fly gliders and wrote programs to analyse the data from aircraft flight recorders, where he also learned to fly, and crash, lots of other types of aircraft as well – which was the best part of the job. At various times in his career he has also lived and worked in France, Switzerland, and Canada, and he now lives in Scotland. Since appearing in school plays as a child he has performed almost continuously on the amateur stage, and spent a few years scuba diving. These two things have nothing to do with each other. In terms of his pedigree as an author he has written many technical manuals and filled in countless timesheets, so is well versed in the art of conjuring up works of fiction, however he has never written a novel before, especially not one that involves a blonde girl and a man with a bow and arrow, but he did once spend three weeks working in a factory that made handles for buckets.
