Can You Be A Book Marketing Gladiator?


For many authors, it seems like it would take a Herculean effort to have their book marketed well and promoted successfully. It is almost as if authors need to channel a superhero in order to get the job done. Writers may need to develop their inner book marketing gladiator!

What does a book marketing gladiator look like or do?

The looks like part is easy to answer. He or she is you. Yes, you look, right now, in the mirror, and you must see a book marketing gladiator.

This means you will become:

* Resilient
* Assertive
* A Fighter
* Confident
* Resourceful
* Courageous

You will build up the muscles needed to defeat the enemies of fear, laziness, or negativity as it relates to promoting your book. A dark knight will not appear out of nowhere to save you. No, no. You are to become the gladiator, ready to go to battle to get your voice heard, your message embraced, your book sold.

Like the gladiator, you must buck the odds. You shall feel alone on the battlefield. You may feel lost in unknown terrain. But you will become who and what is needed to get the job done.

How do I know this?

Because you have no choice. You must step up or be stepped over. I believe in you. Sometimes you won’t win your battle, but you will live another day to try again.

You are the book marketing gladiator — and tomorrow you shall be victorious.
