market research update: katie klein

I emailed Katie Klein asking her about her eBook sales success, and how she had initially gotten the word out. She very kindly replied! Thank you, Katie.

Katie shares: “The truth is, I didn’t do any major advertising/promotion when I released my books. I released them quietly in the middle of the night. :)”

This was not the response I expected… but seems to be perhaps an encouraging sign. Maybe there is an element of “if you build it, they will come” in this business.

  1. You’re welcome! In the case of Cross My Heart, word of mouth had more to do with generating sales than anything I did. I do keep a blog/twitter presence, but I think the key is to write a book that resonates. Not everyone’s first book will be a “hit,” so it’s important to keep writing. Your “breakout” novel might be the third, fifth, or tenth one you write. You just never know! 🙂
