For the authors who just want to create
Are you a busy author? Doing too much work for your own good? Can't find time to create your marketing plan for your book? Are you stuck and can't come up with any marketing ideas? Or do you have too many ideas?
Introducing Busy Author Marketing
I create custom book launch plans tailored specifically to your book and/or series that include everything from social media content ideas, to suggested book blogs and podcasts to contact, and how to utilize your marketing budget of any size.
Who Am I?
My name is Cady Hammer, and I have been a published young adult fantasy author since August 2020. I have six books out in the epic fantasy and magical realism subgenres. I am currently working on projects that will branch out into NA fantasy and mythology. Additionally, I run Fluff About Fantasy, a blog I started in 2019 to help educate writers who were just starting out about all the aspects of writing a fantasy novel. My content has helped so many writers on their journey to starting their first book. It took all of the content out there about writing fantasy and distilled it down into easily digestible, step-by-step tutorials. My author platform has grown over the last four years to include my personal website, my blog, and followings on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Pinterest. I manage all of this while being a full-time graduate student and working as a graduate research assistant.
I spent three and a half months before the launch of my first book creating a database of blogs, websites, podcasts, etc. within my genres in order to reach out to everyone I possibly could to have the perfect first launch. I continue to do a lot of research into what social media trends are hot right now, what readers expect to see on an author's website, and how to take the work you have already done for your book and turn it into something marketable. My presence online continues to grow, and I am trying new ideas all the time to entice readers. I am also very adept at working on a budget. As a student, I don't have a lot of money to launch my books with, but I have learned to maximize the types of promotions I am doing and have a pretty good sense of where to invest money and where to invest time.
I want to continue my efforts to help writers take all of the content out there and actually figure out what ideas will work for their book. I think it is one of the most difficult parts of the publishing journey, and anything I can do to help those who get bogged down in research, who get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of possibilities out there, or who simply don't have the time to come up with a marketing strategy, only to execute.
