Launch Your #1 Bestseller
Launch Your #1 Bestseller:
Book Marketing Success Strategies
My purpose for writing this book is to share how I executed my Amazon Kindle book launch plan for my book: Work It Out Together!: A Step-by-Step Guide for Implementing a Peer Mediation Program. Work It Out Together! became a #1 International Bestseller by hitting #1 in six categories in three countries. This was my first solo book launch and I am sharing my success strategies with you! The strategies and examples can be applied to YOUR book launch. I am a co-author in six books… all six became #1 International Bestsellers in multiple categories.
A successful book launch requires preparation, vision, commitment, a positive mindset and follow through. If you want to watch your book climb to #1 in one or more categories on Amazon, you will want to focus on three phases of a book launch. The three phases are:
Phase 1: Pre-Launch
Phase 2: Book Launch
Phase 3: Post-Launch
My goal is to break down the book launch process into small manageable action steps, complete with an Action Steps Journal.
The Action Steps I share are the roadmap you need to Launch Your #1 Bestseller!
For the last three years, Jerri Eddington has been an active and enthusiastic member of our success-focused author community. Jerri took the “Book Marketing Launch” ball and ran with it. Each day, for months, she drew from a time-tested book marketing strategy and applied it to her book launch. The results were astounding and led to her book ranking #1 in 6 categories on Amazon!
In addition to the brass tacks of diligently marketing her book, she did so in such a way that drew in and included a community of new and old connections. This is one of the wisest book launch tactics. By embracing community and including them in the activities and the results, Jerri created a raving fan base. Then, when the day came of her official book launch, the community linked arms and together we spread the word of Jerri’s book and cheered her on towards her goal of becoming a #1 International Bestselling Author on Amazon!

Even though I have been involved with publishing for decades and published my first book in 1985, moving publishing to the virtual platform as an Indie Publisher has been a challenge. Sometimes, even an albatross.
What do I do now? What do I do first? Oh, no! I should have done THAT before THIS!
Then, a miracle happened.
In the midst of struggling to virtually launch my first book, “MindShift On Demand”, Jerri Eddington reached out and asked if I would like to be a beta reader and reviewer of her upcoming book, “Launch Your #1 Bestseller”?
My response? Well, yes! I need that and I need it now!
Today, she shared her book full of marketing success strategies that are clear, concise, and are laid out in to-do lists. I devoured her book in less than two hours… the best time I’ve ever spent!
I’m amazed at what I have overlooked and how simple it is to fix my oversights with Jerri’s step-through process… I love how she explains a process then outlines with action steps that are quick and easy.
Believe me. Regardless of your age, your experience, or your goals, Indie Publishing is the right place for authors to birth their babies. The problem is you need a publishing midwife. From my point of view, Jerri Eddington just added a new expertise to her credentials!

As an aspiring author, I have been fascinated with learning how to take a book from its conception to best-seller status. I concluded that becoming a success in this arena is not just a matter of learning the craft of writing, but also mastering the art of effectively targeting one’s book to those who will want to buy it, read it, and benefit from its message. In my quest for information I have participated in a number of classes about how to write and promote a successful book. I have invariably found myself feeling stressed and so inundated with information that I didn’t know where to begin.
“Launch Your #1 Bestseller: Book Marketing Success Strategies” by Jerri Eddington Ed.D. is the first book I have read on this topic that takes what can seem like an overwhelming task and breaks it down into bite-size pieces that are easily digestible.
Dr. Jerri’s book pulls it all together by sharing a system she has personally tested with amazing results. She guides the reader on a journey through a step-by-step process that prioritizes each task along the way. She gives clear examples starting with a pre-launch list including: selecting the right title, mastering the world of social media, creating a platform of fans and supporters, to strategically planning a stellar book launch and post-launch follow-up with the newly created fan base. Dr. Jerri has proven that the system she advocates really works because she followed it to attain #1 International Best Seller status in multiple categories for her first solo book, “Work It Out Together! A Step-by-Step Guide for Implementing a Peer Mediation Program.” Her new “how-to” book is an excellent source for writers who are serious about doing the leg work to create a seamless upfront marketing plan, rather than leaving the success of their book projects to chance.

As an author, myself, I can appreciate the rewards and challenges producing a winning manuscript that addresses a need, desire or professional objective. Dr. Eddington continually amazes me with her succinct ability to get to the meat of an issue, whether it be the step by step processes outlined in this fine read, but heart-centered and love-filled tomes of which she has also contributed.
Everyone has a book in them, because our uniqueness tells us so. Take the plunge if you have ever considered writing a book, and use this as your means by which to accomplish your dream.

If you’re serious about wanting your book discovered and having it reach the bestseller list quickly, “Launch Your #1 Bestseller” is an incredible find. I wish I’d found it BEFORE I wasted so much money on high priced bestseller book launch programs.
It covers everything, from preparing the book to getting it listed on the most important sites to ensuring the all-important reviewers and “early adopters” see it, and more.
I’m not the greatest fan of having to schlep around and market my books, so the exercises at the end of each section made it easy to tackle the marketing side in simple bite-sized steps.
I highly recommend this book to beginners and seasoned-pros. After all the passion, we put in to create an amazing book, we certainly want to be sure it reaches the largest audience possible. For me, “Launch Your #1 Bestseller” is the blueprint I’m now using to make it happen!

The author has covered everything in this book. She’s been there and done it. The book is straightforward and clearly written. The action steps are very useful. The links kept me from having to track down the resources myself, and I like that! I am doing a soft launch with my new book, “The Growing Up Years: Easy Family History Journal” (Volume 1). The principles in “Launch Your #1 Bestseller” still apply, and I will be referring to it again and again as I go through the launch process. This is a great resource for anyone who is self-published or intending to be.
