When John Kremer decided to name his book, 1001 WAYS TO MARKET YOUR BOOKS, he sold himself short. If you only came away with 1001 ideas from this massive tome, I'd say you might want to go back and re-read it.

This book is, by far, the best book I have found on book marketing. For a promoter or author to attempt to market a book without first researching how to go about it, would be insane, and that research should begin right here. There are many books available on this topic, but none so comprehensive as this one.

Kremer's book goes far beyond the basics of giving you a few pointers on how to market your book. Let's face it, no matter how incredible your book might be, if no one ever reads it, your work is lost. This book will arm the writer with information on what they can do to insure their own success. Don't make the mistake so many authors make of leaving their success up to someone else.

Here you'll learn not only about marketing your book, but how to construct a top notch publicity campaign, various ways to promote your book, the best way to advertise, gaining distribution, and even how to capitalize on your writing after your book is published.

In short, if you are a writer or publisher, you HAVE TO HAVE this book. To attempt to market your book without it would be like running a race with cement shoes.

There are a ton of book marketing books out there, but this one belongs on the shelf of every author and publisher out there.

First of all-- I have to say Im one of the most frugal people I know. I want to get a value for anything that I purchase. This book has 700 pages of great marketing ideas. It doesnt matter whether you are a beginner or experienced author or publisher in book marketing, you WILL find a new marketing ideas, and refine some of your current marketing.

Hope this helps.

Format: Paperback
Whether you are a published writer or want to become a published writer, you need to read this book. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of ways to promote, publicize, announce, advertise and get your name out to thousands if not millions of people. The ideas listed are simple, easy to understand, well researched and simply fun to complete. I was surprised at how many mistakes I made with my marketing campaign in the beginning. There are so many simple, no-brainer ideas that I could have been doing that would have helped me to market my book better. Not only are there ideas that help to raise the sales and production of your book at your marketing launch, but there are ways to help keep it going. The reason I gave it four stars instead of five was because several of the ideas in the book are for businesses or large companies who have huge amounts of money to use for marketing, massive amounts of time to travel, and can participate in events that the individual can not. However, there are still many, many great tips for the self-published author. If you want to market your book effectively read this one!

After reading positive review after positive review of the book, I eagerly anticipated the book's arrival in the mail. As the book was so thick and chock full of information, I knew that I would walk away with many new ideas on how to market my book. After reading the book cover to cover, I can honestly say that I walked away with very little. Perhaps it is because I have a background in marketing and already came up with some of the marketing ideas on my own (get mentioned in newspaper articles, speak in as many places as possible) or perhaps because some of the ideas were just a stretch to 1,001 (Open your own bookstore, use your book content to start a book and get AdSense money.

Format: Paperback
After publishing over 30 self-published titles, I have a good feel for how valuable this type of book can be. This is an enormous book (700+ pages) that will give you virtually everything that you could possibly need to sell more books. It will take a while to read, but if you have already taken all of the preliminary steps in book marketing, then this is a great comprehensive next step for any serious author. If you implement half of the things in this book, you will become much more successful.

Enjoy!

As a self-published author myself, I took this book quite seriously and literally, following many of the suggestions to help promote and market my book. While not every publisher/author will follow all 1001 marketing ideas, there are literally hundreds of options that every person can implement.

Whether you are a publisher, a self-publisher author or you've gone the traditional route with an established publisher but want to keep your book alive, this book is a must-have.
