A number of my colleagues have hosted Facebook events to promote their books and announce the release of their books,however, I really like calling it a party!...and inviting other #authors too... So why not, connect with other authors in your genre and host a party.
If your book helps authors, experts, or professionals write, market or build authority, post below and let's host a party together!
Here are tips to run a successful Facebook party for your book.
1. Length of time: Most Facebook parties are run on one day. I’ve seen parties that run from 9 am to 9 pm Pacific (12 noon to 12 midnight Eastern). I think that’s a bit long. I ran my party from 2 pm to 6 pm Pacific (5 pm to 9 pm Eastern), only four hours. I like that short amount of time because that allowed most of my guests to participate the whole time.
2. Have special guests: What makes this party so much fun is that you don’t do it alone. By that I mean you get special guests—other authors—to come to your party and also give away prizes. In the several Facebook parties that I participated in I was asked as a guest. I was there to celebrate that author’s new release and also to offer a giveaway, usually an e-book copy of one of my books that related in some way to the authors book.
