Marketing A Book When You’re Made Like Martha

My guest this week on the Book Marketing Mania podcast is my sweet friend, Katie Reid, author of Made Like Martha: Good News for the Woman Who Gets Things Done.

If you’re a do-er like Martha, you’ll love this episode with Katie Reid, author of Made Like Martha: Good News for the Woman Who Gets Things Done. She’s sharing how she’s marketing her book, her tips for pitching podcast hosts, and how her ministry to business mindset is allowing her to make money so she can pay to do even more things to promote her book. It's all happening on episode 17 of the Book Marketing Mania podcast with Kim Stewart.

In this episode, Katie shares:

  • How she approached her book launch with a Martha mindset
  • Her tips on planning your book marketing long before you think you need to (even if traditionally published)
  • How hosting a podcast can allow you to keep sharing about your book (without always ‘talking about the book’)
  • Her tips on podcast pitching (from a host’s perspective) even before your book is ready
  • How her ministry to business mindset helps her make money to “do” even more book marketing

Katie M. Reid is the author of Made Like Martha and A Very Bavarian Christmas. She is the co-host of The Martha + Mary Show podcast, and a singer/songwriter. She has published articles on Focus on the Family, MOPS, HuffPost, TODAY’s Parenting Blog, and YouVersion. Katie inspires others to live out their God-given purpose with tenacity and grace, as they stand on truth and walk in freedom. She lives in the middle of Michigan with her handsome hubby and five lively children and is a fan of musicals and cut-to-the-chase conversations over tea.
