3 Things To Consider To Build Hype For Your Book

If you aren’t excited about your book why would anybody else be?

There are legit ways to make people interested when you drop a title. Some of the ways include a little more work and others don’t require as much time as you think.

Why is hype so important?

People Follow Fads

I know it’s a bit sad but it also makes sense. A lot of consumers follow fads.

One of the main reasons is because no one wants to waste their time on a bad product. So the more people are interested in your book the more likely you are to gain a new reader.

People Want To Be Entertained

People like to be entertained and so if your book is gaining hype then they may be inclined to give your a book a chance.

Now you will have to follow through by writing a good book but if you’re looking for hype you’ll need to have this done anyway.

Creating a story that gets people talking is one of the best ways to create hype.

But are you willing to push boundaries?

To Be Controversial Or Not Be Controversial

Now I’m not necessarily for being incendiary.

But I will say this, the more you can get people talking about your book because of its content the better the chances are that you will gain hype.

But What Are You Trying To Say?

What conversation are you trying to spark?

These are the things that you need to think about in advance before even considering writing controversial books. Because if you want the heat, there will always be people out there willing to give it to you.

In other words, are you willing to back up your point of view, whether non-fiction or otherwise?

What Is The Number One Way To Build Hype?

By creating dynamic characters that take your breath away!

Where are your characters from? What is their upbringing? Who are their parents and are they generally weak or strong in nature?

What kind of friends does your leading character roll with?

How vicious is your antagonist?
