While this book does have some legitimately helpful tips for marketing your book, I would also say it's for EXTREME beginners. Many of the tips include step-by-step info on how to set up an author website, author page on Amazon, Twitter and Facebook profiles and the like, which is (to me) way too basic. If you don't know how to do these things already, you don't have a big enough platform to be publishing your own books and trying to market them.Read more ›
The subject matter of the book is arranged in an easy to read progressive order. I was highly impressed with the sections on doing your own keyword analysis, and SEO optimization of your website. My only dislike in the book is the not overwhelming, but frequent references to visit a website owned by one of the authors, which specializes in book marketing services. Other guides I've read frequently do the same, but generally, the links take you back to the publisher's website where they host the content. I have no knowledge why they chose to host the reference material where they did, but personally I do not like being sent to a website that sells services to get reference material. Others may feel different. Despite the links, I highly recommend this book.Read more ›
NOT SO WITH THIS BOOK. This is a clear, well written, and engaging instruction manual taking you step by step through the mysterious and scary (to most authors) process of doing your own marketing. Which, by the way, you have to do even if you're a mid-list author at a large publishing house.
If you write books, or even if you're just planning to write a book, this is something that belongs on your shelf (or on your Kindle). I've been marketing my own books for years and in the first 30 pages alone I learned all sorts of things I should have been doing all along, but never have. I'd never even thought about it -- because, of course, I'm always thinking about WRITING, not marketing.
This book has helped me past that. Marketing your book can be as creative and rewarding as the actual writing. Especially in this new phase of publishing, this wide open world where it seems anything is possible, where opportunity and danger lies all around like land mines, you need to think of the marketing you do for your book AS PART of the book itself. It's part of being an author. This book drives that home, helps you wrap your head around it, and gives you a clear path forward.
And as you can probably tell by the tone of this review, it makes you excited to do it, as well.
