This week's podcast is all about my virtual book launch. A much shorter episode than usual, that is filled with so much love and gratitude to you the listener and reader. I really appreciate you! :)
Now through Friday is the virtual launch of my new book, No, wait… You do look gay! The 7 Mistakes Preventing You from Selling to the $830 Billion LGBT Market. (www.nowaityoudolookgay.com) It is a really unique book packed with marketing and sales advice to any business owner or professional looking to reach the widely untapped LGBT market. My goal is that this book becomes an Amazon Best Seller during this time frame.
At the time of writing this podcast post, it is sitting at #7! Can we get to #1, together??I could use your help so that I actually have a shot at achieving this goal. Would you be willing to share posts on your social media between August 21-22? As an incentive to purchase during the virtual launch, I am offering a super low Kindle price ($5.99) during those 4 days and I am giving purchasers free access to my online training course 'Defining Your LGBT Target Market' (normally $97) completely free.
There is something beautiful about having just bumped into the first page! None of this would be happening if it weren't for this incredibly supportive network of friends and colleagues - thank you all from the bottom of my heart, I really appreciate you!

Jenn T. Grace:
Well hello and welcome to episode number forty of the podcast. I am your host, Jenn Grace, and today is going to be an extra brief episode because I am in the middle of launching my second book, 'No Wait, You Do Look Gay: The Seven Mistakes Preventing You From Selling to the $830 billion LGBT Market.' And I have been talking about the book launch for a while, but today is the day. Actually this past week has been the week. So on Monday I began reaching out to folks in my network asking them if they would be willing to post something on social media, whether it's on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, maybe send something to their audience in an email, newsletter, whatever it happens to be. And I personally have the goal, and the goal still stands because the launch is from August 19th through the 22nd, and today is August 20th, and the goal is to make it to number one in the Business and Money category on Amazon in the Etiquette section. So I have picked a really broad topic, or a broad category, trying to rank in on Amazon. And right now as it stands of this recording, I am in the number nine slot. So I have made it to the top ten bestselling list on Amazon, and I can't even being to explain how super excited I am at the moment. Right before I was about to hit record on this podcast I happened to do a refresh, and I went from number fourteen up to number nine. So my goal is still really strong of trying to get to number one. When I first started this out I had no idea if it would be even remotely attainable, but now looking, sitting here in the number nine slot, I feel like it's possible. I just have a lot of hope, it's possible. I just want to say thank you to those of you who are listening who have participated in the sharing of this information. It is amazing,
