So, the 8th question is “It is difficult to market books to readers who don’t usually read spirituality/religious books. Yes or no?”
1) Author #1 : Todd Johnson
I’ve had hard time to market my book do to financial funds and nince.
3) Author #3: Sandra Lott
To Yes, it is, but I believe I have been led to write all the books I have written. So, If indeed God gave them to me, then He in His time, not mine, will also lead me to the right avenues, or lead the people who need to read my books, to them. You focus on your passion to write and not on book sales, you are a lot happier.
4) Author #4: Sharon Farber
I don’t know. I’ve never marketed a book before. My publisher, agent, and I are marketing the book to people who are interested in spirituality and mediumship.
5) Author #5: Mitch Gannon
Yes. Some people feel turned off my spirituality/religious books because of how they grew up with organized faith and religion. My book is for anyone, whether atheist, agnostic, or a follower of a religion.
6) Author #6: Hemal Radia
The aim would be to target it to someone who is seeking this and at least open to it. Even if someone doesn’t read spirituality books but have a desire and openness then the right book and information will land in their lap, which is what I often hear about in relation to my book. I hear stories of people who have manifested their 12mth goals in 1 month after reading this book and lots of other inspiring stories. So even if someone isn’t usually a spiritual reader they still have desires and if they have an open mind then a spiritual book that shows them how could open up a world they had no idea of before. That is also what I aimed for when I originally wrote my book… that if someone was open-minded and wanted this information but was very new to it they could still enjoy it and learn it from my book. The aim was to write it in a loving, warm, gentle, reassuring, soothing and supportive style which brings alive someone’s spirit in transforming their life.
7) Author #7: Brina Tharishinee
I guess, it is!
8) Author #8: Barry Rice
Yes. However, when the writer begins their writing by relating to concerns that the reader may be searching for, and the title leads the reader to be curious, i.e., The Power and Blessings Of A Sunrise, getting the potential reader to purchase has overcome the reluctance of some conceivable buyers/readers.
9) Author #9: Chris Batts
Yes. I’d like to reach as many people as possible.
10) Author #10: Syl Sabastian
No, not particularly. One simply has to shift the point of connection to one which is Relevant and Pertinent to them, and then move them from there in steps to where you are at.
11) Author #11: Donald Smith
I can’t say yes or no because I truly don’t know
12) Author #12: Rabjot
No. The quality of the content should be good and that will be enough.
