Dear Writers Write Followers

This is the week when we ask you to help support and grow Writers Write. If everybody reading this gave $10, our fundraiser would be over in a few days. We are a small company that carries the costs of top website servers, staff, and programmes. We think Writers Write is special. It is a library for writers. Everything you need is on the site. If Writers Write is special to you too, please take a minute to donate to keep us online and growing. Thank you!

Day 29


Welcome to Day 29 of Hooked on Writing, your free online writing course. This online workbook will help you create a writing habit in 31 days.

Back to reality

Aim:

To make you think about how you would market a book.

How:

  1. You work in the marketing department of a publishing house.
  2. You have six new titles:

a. My 10-Day Affair With A Reality Star (Romance)

b. Desperate In Dainfern/Dundee/Denver (Chick Lit)

c. Hillbrow Hell (Police Procedural)

d. The Sword Of Flyon (Fantasy)

e. The Border (A Soldier’s Memoir)

f. The Whisperers (Psychological Thriller)

  1. Choose one of the titles.
  2. Remember that your goal is to get as many copies of this book reviewed and sold as possible.
  3. Write a press release/blurb that you would send out to the media to get them interested.
  4. Makes you think doesn’t it?
