My journey as an Author - Pravin Agarwal

My first novel was ‘8 Course Meal for the Soul’. I wrote it in three months and self-published it immediately in the year 2017. It was a motivational novel. I was not satisfied with the end-product and thus withdrew it from the market within one month. My actual journey as an author began after that. I then read so many talented Indian authors and learned from them. Simultaneously, I began writing my second novel ‘The Girl in the Dream’. It took me almost one and half years to write it.   Next, one year went into finalizing a suitable traditional publisher, editing by a professional editor, proofreading, finalizing marketing plan, etc. Finally, in March 2020 the novel got published. Since I withdrew my first novel from the market soon after its release, I consider ‘The Girl in the Dream’ as my debut novel. It took me four years of dedicated efforts, patience and focus to make a mark. I am highly grateful to all the readers for their overwhelming response. A big thank you to all for

How to market your book?

The most commonly asked question by the Authors is how to promote their book. Below are the few pointers, which I found effective. 1. Increase the visibility of your book and of yourself as an Author(both online & offline). Online is economical. The more the readers know you, the better are the chances that they pick your book.  2. Take the help of Amazon and Instagram paid marketing to reach a wider audience. 3. Get more reviews of your book on Amazon, Instagram and other relevant platforms. 4. Content marketing - Share about your book on social media. 5. Maintain discipline and write daily. The more you write the more you become known and established as an Author.  If you know any other helpful point, then do add it in the comment section so that aspiring authors get benefited from it.
