Carol Hoenig is no stranger to the promotion of books. Having worked for one of the largest book retailers in the world and now an award-winning author, herself she speaks from experience in the world of author events.
In her newest book, The Author's Guide to Planning Book Events: Tips and Tools for Bookselling Success, she opens her vault to reveal tried, true and new techniques for putting an author's book in front of the readers who want to know and be in-the-know.
Written in an open and inviting voice, Hoenig puts the new authors'questions to rest and for the repeat authors, she offers up-to-date methods of self-promotion that will be a sell-out of every book at your event.
As an industry professional, I highly recommend every author to purchase a copy of this timely and valuable companion to self-promotion.

I am a first time writer and profess to having stacks of self-publishing books.Author's Guide to Planning is unigue,and truly stands out from the rest. Hoenig "thinks outside the box" which is imperative in today's marketing. Her methods for marketing are refreshing,easy to accomplish.My whole marketing plan changed after reading this book!
Hard work on our part as a writer, has always been part of the deal,but with Hoenig's suggestions,it means real success!

I was absolutely delighted with this book. It was far more practical and helpful than I expected, with advice from pre-publication right down to the nail biting book launch.
If anybody is wondering what to buy their writer friend or family member then buy them this book. They will love it and you!

This is the third time I purchased this book. Each time I gave it as a gift, I rceived such glowing reports, beyond the usual "thank you for the gift," but they went off on what a great book it is. So I re-read it and I found passages that were so vivid I marked up my book. Something I've never done before. This book goes on the shelf above my desk, for ready reference.
