How historical fiction author achieved steady book sales and top rankings on the best seller list
Elaine Cougler is the author of 5 books, with work spanning multiple genres including both historical fiction and non-fiction. Elaine’s historical novels comprise The Loyalist Trilogy and The Loyalist’s Daughter, which celebrate Canadian history and depict the lives of settlers in the Thirteen Colonies who remained loyal to Britain during the American Revolution.
Elaine’s creative non-fiction book, The Man Behind the Marathons: How Ron Calhoun Helped Terry Fox and other Heroes Make Millions for Charity, shares a different kind of history. The book recounts the inspirational true story of Ron Calhoun’s life and journey, as the remarkable unsung hero behind Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope.
Excited to spread the word about Calhoun’s life and legacy, Elaine worked with Book Excellence to promote this book.
“I wanted to be known for all of my books…I wanted great speaking gigs, interviews and sales of all my titles.”
“I found placing my books in stores like Chapters was mostly a losing proposition. Consignment deals had me taking all the risks, doing all the promotion and having my books placed so out of the way even I, who was looking for them, could not find them on the shelves.”
“Sales were zilch.”
The Book Excellence team knew that a more focused sales approach would help Elaine reach readers in a more effective manner.
“I took back control…selling on Amazon was much preferable to the in-store agreements I had to make.”
How Book Excellence Helped Elaine Become A Best Seller
“The Book Excellence crew knew their jobs. I got value for my money in various ways.”
In the first week of promoting the book, The Man Behind The Marathons hit the #1 spot on the Amazon Best Seller List in 8 categories, outselling New York Times’ bestsellers such as Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson, a book that was made into a major motion picture starring Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx.
“I am ecstatic to be an Amazon #1 Bestseller.”
“I am known by readers and other writers as someone who is out there succeeding. Others see my marketing and my book sales are steady.”
Elaine’s writing journey has also led her to share her work at international book fairs, cruises, and writing events around the world.
