5 Ways You Can Help Me Sell My Book

1. Purchase the book. Pre-orders are absolutely the best type of sales; the next best is to buy it within the first week or two after its release (September 1st– add it to your calendar now!). You can pre-order it through Barnes & NobleAmazon, or a host of other online retailers.

2. Read it and review it. I’d be so, so grateful for some great reviews on Goodreads, Amazon, etc.

3. Ask your local bookstore to carry the book.

4. Ask your local library to order it for its shelves.

5. Talk about it! With friends, family, teens you know, in person, on social media, etc. Word-of-mouth matters!

That said, I’m terribly grateful just to have the opportunity to write and be published. Thank you for anything you do– your kind words and encouragement, your excitement for me, your investment in my life– these all matter to me too. Deeply.

  1. I love posts like these because too often I think people want to help, but aren’t sure how to. Will definitely be doing my best to send Truest lots of love and readers. It’s exciting that it is getting so close!
