I’ve just finished reading, and then re-reading Melissa Wilson’s book on publishing. The key word in her title that captured my attention was ‘success’. I should preface my review by stating that I am a writer, having published four books to date and I’m currently working on a sequel to my second title. If you’ve ever self-published, you know how relatively easy it is to fulfill the publishing requirements and post your book to the world. However, what you may not realize is writing and publishing the work is the easy part – at least for me that’s been the case.

I’ve been looking for help with my marketing skills, hoping someone; anyone could give me some direction to further expand my readership. Thankfully, I downloaded this insightful eBook, which I’ve already started to put into practice. I wasn’t looking for ‘how to write’ or even ‘how to publish’, but I was looking for assistance with exposure. Just how does one go about capturing the attention of millions of readers worldwide? That’s exactly what I found in the pages of this concise guide.

In a logical step-by-step approach, Wilson launches into 101 useful, and very functional tips to get any writer on the right path to success. I would have expected it to be more for people who have already written a book, but it’s not. Even if you’ve just a single idea in the middle of a sheet of paper, this book is directed at you. She starts with blogging. I blog, but I hate it, and why? Because I’ve been doing it wrong from the get-go. I’m re-thinking my strategy as I’m typing this review.

Social Media is covered, providing useful, can-do ideas that once again...I was doing incorrectly. It’s no wonder I’ve struggled with marketing and felt overwhelmed and discouraged at times.

The world of publishing is changing and thought leaders have to adjust their approach to this new world. The traditional way of connecting with their audience has been swallowed up by faster and more efficient ways of communicating which have their own pitfalls too. The 101 tips contained in this book are easy to read, understand and implement and will help the target audience realign their understanding of marketing themselves and their books.

Publishing remains an enigma out there for some authors, but Melissa Wilson and Jon Malysiak break things down and allow the budding author to start working towards success in publishing. In this book, she gives you 101 ways to do that: from starting a blog (and how to best engage with your audience), to how to successfully utilize Twitter and other social media, and to organizing your book so that is can be competitive in the market at a first glance.

From a reader's standpoint, this is a book that is easy to understand and read. Each tip is clearly broken off in new paragraphs, and they're also organized by sections. You may find yourself not needing every single tip (though each is certainly very helpful), and the organizational aspect of this book really aids with the ease of access of these materials. I found that this book really dives deep into success in publishing because it doesn't give you just one type of advice (for example, advice just on the design of your cover or your book contents), but turns out and dives into other subjects, such as video blogging or social media.

One interesting thing I gained from this book is the knowledge on hybrid publishing. I have never heard of the term before, but the authors allowed me to understand that and give me tips to approach that type of publishing as well, should I be interested.

Overall, this is a great book for both published authors and aspiring authors alike. Highly recommended.
