After discussing the Self Vs Traditional Publishing option and your digital marketing mediums, the next big goal is Hype. Actually, it's more of a dream goal than a realistic one, but hey reach for the stars right? You've gone through the painstaking process of writing, editing and promoting your novel. All that's left is to think/dream big and plan for the Hype. A dream without a plan remains a dream. So what is Hype exactly?
Many budding authors are often faced with this dilemma, should I go the self-publishing route? A process that is getting simpler by the day, or should I seek to get traditionally published? A significantly more arduous process, that entails finding an agent that will know how to submit the proper pitch to publishing houses that stands head and shoulders above the ever-mounting pile that publishers have to sift through.
