Melissa started Networlding Publishing, a ghostwriting and book marketing organization, because her top value is "making a difference." She found that she could make the biggest difference by following her "Power-of-Ten" Networlding process.

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.

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.
