Tell them about your book and when it will be available, provide a link where they can buy it, ask them to review the book on Amazon and Goodreads, and ask them to tell their friends about your book.

2.      Use social media. Facebook posts and tweets on Twitter with an image of your book, a link to where to buy it, and a word or two about it can reach a wide audience. Make sure to ask people to share or retweet to broaden your reach.

3.      Hold a launch party. Invite your friends, your personal network, and their friends. Celebrate your book’s publication, sell some books (Don’t forget to ask buyers to post reviews.), and ask for the guests help in publicizing the book.
