For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
Here's what I'm doing and it's not perfect yet.
I'm sharing with you all during the process to give you any insight and wisdom my experiences so far can provide.
On Wednesday, May 4, 40 gifts valued over $1717 will be shared with lots and lots of folks on lists of all 40 luminaries I invited into my book launch. It's happening at http://www.HappinessQuotations.com.
Here's the first 13 gifts:

In Happiness Quotations: Gentle Reminders of Your Preciousness, you are invited to appreciate and express gratitude on the road to experiencing more happiness and joy in your life. Suzy’s 30-day Gratitude Journal is an excellent accompanying tool to do just that! Thank you Suzy, for this gift.
Celeste was Erica’s personal life coach during the writing of her book “Prospect When You Are Happy,” and her gift is to help you shift into higher consciousness leaving ego behind. Now, that is a great gift.
Marie is a strong supporter of Happiness Quotations. For you, she shares her book designed to take you through the decluttering process of self discovery, elimination and most of all moving away from what no longer works and reconnecting with your spiritual source. By using the assessments and tips, you will experience increased mental clarity, a shift towards inner alignment, and physical and mental peace.
What I did to pull together all of this activity was to work with another author, Louise Rouse, who had a good list of contributors to another self-help event. I went through lots and lots of possibilities and e-mailed those authors whose gifts I felt worked well with my book.
John Kremer says the true test of a book marketing event is: does it sell books?
So, on May 4, 2011, I will find out if the book launch for Happiness Quotations works.
I did everything myself, so far, as far as creating the content for the emails and ezine articles about the launch. It also landed me a spot in a women's magazine for the summer, and possibly an October conference for book promotion in the fall.
Since I teach happiness, though, I am committed to being happy no matter what the outcome ends up being. I am fortunate to have all these people join the team, and I feel blessed regardless of book sales. It's been a great journey.
Not previously a believer in creating a big book launch with JV partners, I'm a full believer now.
