How to host a book launch party

I have discussed this here on the blog before, but I still get people asking me for tips, so I think it’s worth doing again. Plus, it’s good to mention the differences between doing a launch party in a major store (like a Barnes & Noble) and an indie store or other venue or even online. So I hope this will be informative.

Basically, there are three ways people do a Book Launch Event.

1) In a chain store
2) in an indie store or non-store venue
3) online

I’ve done them all and I can say that while online launch parties are wonderful, they just aren’t as fun as physical events. Your best bet is to combine them. Do your physical party in the evening, and your online event the following evening. Why? Because you *might* have leftover goodies from your physical party to add to your online event giveaways. And yes, there should be giveaways. What’s a party without goodies?

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!
