First-time author? Here are 8 tips on how to manage a book launch team

Today the book publishing world is far different than it was in 2005 when I published “Darknet” and needed an agent (Deirdre Mullane), a publishing house (John Wiley & Sons) and had to wait a full year to see it published.

Best practices for book launch teams

1. Be clear on what you want from team members

2. Be communicative, but don’t overwhelm

3. Make it easy for them to get your book

4. Ask them to help polish the manuscript

5. Give them time to read it

6. Ask them to leave a review with more upside

7. Leverage the power of the crowd

8. Show your gratitude
