Pat Flynn is one of the kings of the marketing world and that showed in the way he launched his 2016 Wall Street Journal bestseller, Will it Fly?

Oh, do I have a great guest for you today. Rea Frey is the award-winning bestselling author of three suspense novels and four nonfiction books with St. Martin's as well as the CEO of Writeway, a multiple six-figure business that helps connect authors to agents so they can land publishing deals (Writeway does proposal writing, query letters...the whole shebang.)

Frey also knows her way around a book launch, having built up an active Instagram through a very specific strategy and landing herself in publications like US Weekly, Entertainment Weekly, Glamour, Popsugar, Hello Sunshine, Marie Claire, Parade, Shape and Hello Giggles (spoiler: this also involves having a very specific strategy).

Listen to her share her top launch tips, her journey through the web of publishing and find out how you can get a free 30-minute consultation with her by listening to this episode.

Obviously, the length of time it takes to write and launch a book varies from writer to writer; Anthony Burgess wrote A Clockwork Orange while Junot Diaz took a decade to write The Brief, Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao.

And I know people who have written massively successful books in a weekend. But the rough statistic I've heard quoted is that if you’re going to write it yourself, expect to spend about 300 hours on the first draft.

This episode breaks down how long not just the writing but also the publishing takes.

One thing I need to tell you right off: there was no bigger snob about self-publishing back in the day than the person writing this post. My, how times have changed. This episode breaks down how.
