As an attorney who travels around the globe, Gabrielle finds a lot of story inspiration in the places she visits. With five novels and two poetry collections under her belt, she is no stranger to the writing process. But Gabrielle knew she needed a marketing strategy. That’s when she turned to the ALC for guidance.
Read Gabrielle’s story below!
When I’m writing, I know there’s value in writing about subjects that appeal to a widespread audience. However, that doesn’t automatically mean you know how to market your book to them. The marketing insights that I got from the ALC’s webinars and videos gave me a lot of guidance in creating a marketing strategy.
There’s definitely a shift in mindset that occurs when you go from writing to marketing your book. The Book Launch Tool and email reminders from the ALC help me plan ahead and ensure I’m focusing on the right thing at the right time.
I like to keep a structured writing routine, which is also where the Book Launch Tool really helps. It provides a welcome structure in terms of what to accomplish next—especially since I am often working on multiple books at different stages in the process.
My advice to other authors is to remember that once you’re finished with your story, you have to put it out there. Have confidence in what you’ve written and don’t become paralyzed by getting it “perfect”. Otherwise, you’ll never get to the publishing stage.
Mindy and Blaine enjoy a life of marital bliss in upstate New York. The fire is lit on their marriage as they experience romantic dates in the Hamptons. However, Mindy realizes that she wants more—to start a family. Blaine has many projects on the horizon including the acquisition of a new hotel out west and the family business. Will Blaine find the time to help Mindy realize her dreams now that he is more successful? Or will a move to the west coast delay their plans? Where Lives Lead is a contemporary tale of love and sacrifice as different paths attempt to unite.
