I've made a few videos about how I build big lists of targeted readers before I launch a new book, but I'm getting better at it all the time so I thought I'd share the latest… this giveaway will probably get 5K subscribers for a couple hundred books (readers who like my target genre). I use KingSumo and targeted Facebook ads mostly, but also tag the other authors I included so they share, and used some trending hashtags for maximum visibility.

Hey there – I'm Derek Murphy. I'm a fine artist who became a book cover designer, then started writing young adult scifi and fantasy. I've spent almost 20 years living abroad, have a PhD in comparative literature (revolutionary politics in Paradise Lost), and have been featured in CNN for renting castles to use as writing retreats. Although I'm not working with clients anymore, I've built a ton of resources to help indie authors write, design and publish bestselling books.
On this channel, I talk about writing, publishing and creating personal freedom with unconventional business strategies and providing value. My videos are unpolished and a little raw, because we travel full-time and I focus on content, not production quality.
