Author Launch Masterclass - Lesson 2

Marketing That Sells Books: The Author Mythology

It's basically impossible to sell a book. You have to create a mythology around your characters, your story world and around yourself as an author, and let the mythology sell the books for you.

This seminar is taken from the wider set on Marketing for Authors, so it does lack the context, but you will get the idea behing this critical understanding.

I hope you love it!

Helping Hands

"Writing, like driving a car and making love, is one of those activities which every man thinks they can do without instruction. The results are, of course, usually abominable." 

Tom Margison's words are good fun, but also sadly accurate. So I am going to step you through everything you need to know about storytelling, marketing and the industry to get you published AND to sell books. It's life changing knowledge you need if you want success. 

Making love... I can't help you there, but other websites are available... So I'm told...

From Seminar Delegates

"The course was very informative and easy to follow. I can see now how an understanding of Knowledge Gaps and Storification is just what is needed to craft a great story. I was able to take what he has said and apply this to my work. I give David's course 10/10." 

"Great! I wish we had time to dive deeper. David explained everything every thoroughly and I loved his examples. I am still wrapping my head around some aspects, but I already feel a difference in how I watch a film and what I notice - the knowledge gaps and when I'm storyfying!" 

"David was clear, fun, insightful and kind. It was really useful to be able to talk to him. He was very approachable and gave everyone really clear feedback."

"Thanks for all your input David, this was all really useful. I love your style of presentation and your humour. On the whole I found your theories easy to understand." 

Marketing:- Mind. Blown. The difference between what I was doing and what I should be doing left me gobsmacked. And it's so obvious! What David taught will change what I do from now on for sure. Thank you David."

"10/10! I've never deconstructed a story in such a way and he makes it riveting and funny so kudos David!"

"The workshops were unbelievable. David knows - he just knows - how the story is working (or not!) and the way he dissects a story in real-time straight after the pitch - impressive."
