My book website just went up, and now I need a launch team to spread the Good News (about Party of One, obviously), to make my publisher not regret signing me, and to send Party of One into the world come February.
Why do you need a launch team, JB?
Preorders are really important; if your book had a superlative in a yearbook, preorders determine whether you’re “Most Likely to Succeed” or “Nastiest Feet.” These preorders help decide how confident a publisher is in your book, how many copies they print at first run, and how many distributors will pick the book. (THEY ARE A REALLY BIG DEAL.) And a launch team is a great way to help boost preorders. Plus, I like people.
