Congratulations! Your book is in print. It’s time to party.
Ok, do you literally want to have a party where people come and celebrate this significant milestone with you? If so, read on.
A book launch is an event that occurs on or around the official release date of your book where people come together to celebrate your book publication and learn more about your book.
You can host a book launch at a local bookstore.
If you’d like for your book launch to happen at a local bookstore, the first step is to find a bookstore that hosts events and has staff who support events. The second step is to pitch to them. Bookstores struggle to find audiences for book events so your job will be to convince them that you have an audience. For most writers, that audience includes your friends, neighbors, and colleagues. This is why it’s easiest to have a book launch in the city or town you live in.
