Every author dreams that one day their books will go viral. It is the ultimate accolade of success. Having a book go viral tops getting published or even making the ever growing number of best seller lists. It is the elusive dream for the majority of authors, yet with the right foundation and approach to marketing the dream is more achievable than it ever has been.
As authors we all know the amazing sense of achievement that comes with publishing our first book and for a while we find ourselves basking in the ‘twilight zone’ of being a published author. Then comes that rude awakening when we find our book sales are nowhere near our expectations.
Fortunately there is much we can do to meet our dreams, but above all else we have to be visible and today that means a powerful social media presence combined with publishing knowledge that is always ahead of the curve. It simply isn’t enough to have a great book if your potential readers have never heard of it.
At BookViral we focus our energy on discovering new authors and those you may not have yet heard off, because this is where we excel and we are passionate about the books that shape the minds of readers across the world.
Our spotlight reviews are attracting thousands of new readers everyday and if you have written book that deserves the best in promotion we want to hear from you.
"The book to read is not the one that thinks for you but the one which makes you think"
With continuing innovations in modern technology and ever easier access to the web, content is king when it comes to grabbing a potential readers attention. For authors, especially those who are self-published and often have a limited marketing budget behind them, the overriding drive of content marketing is to spread the word, utilising the often overwhelming and vast power of the World Wide Web. It’s an undeniable fact that more and more authors get discovered by agents and send their book sales into the stratosphere just by posting something that hits the right note of accord at the right time. The problem is that everyone seems to be mimicking everyone else and worse still, automating it with the same content that countless others are posting. To read the full post click HERE.
Dark and riveting, the harrowing opening chapter from The Schwarzschild Radius sets the tone for this uncompromising and gripping thriller by author Gustavo Florentin. It’s not for the faint hearted, it’s tense and morally disturbing as voyeurism reaches new extremes, with each page requiring your full concentration to fully absorb the prevailing sense of malevolence that pervades within.
