As a first-time author, I have devoured this book by J. Steve Miller! All authors, whether first time or seasoned, self-published or traditionally published, will benefit greatly from this guide to marketing your book. Mr. Miller has left nothing out; he starts at the beginning with a brief history of publishing, describing the recent revolution in publishing and how it affects authors.

In a clear, easy-to-understand, and friendly tone, Miller talks about everything you want to know about marketing your book, beginning with the title selection and book design. He discusses marketing before the book comes out and then marketing for the life of the book, which can be a very long time (fortunately for us author/marketers).

The best things about this book:

1. It is complete. Miller stresses that authors cannot do everything in the book, but he helps authors decide what is best for them, considering the book and the author's personality. Love the options!

2. Miller gives tons of links throughout the book. Love the links!!!

3. Miller has been through this and gives personal experiences as well as the advice of other experts. Love the inspiration of others!

Yes, there are other books on book promotion, but I find Sell Your Books to be the most complete and easy to use. Authors: This book will help you immensely!

When I read the title, Sell More Books!, I couldn't imagine anything that would help ME to sell more books. After all, I had done nearly everything that had been suggested by marketing gurus and experts. What else was there that I hadn't already tried?

Originally my marketing plan consisted of a little bit of this and a little bit of that, hoping something might work. I was so afraid that if I didn't try everything, the one thing I didn't do would be the difference maker. Why I took this approach, I don't know, except to acknowledge that marketing is far more overwhelming and complicated than writing a book.

Oftentimes we are bombarded with a zillion suggestions from well-meaning marketing folks, and being the newbie that I was, I tried most of them. What I found, however, is that many of those highly touted things didn't work (and don't work for most new or low-profile authors). Do you really need a publicist, for instance? What about all those press releases that cost a lot of money? And a drawing up a marketing plan? What would that consist of, anyway? Sell More Books! will help

Once I began reading Sell More Books! I realized what I needed were not new methods or ideas but a strategy to help me evaluate what I had already done. And Sell More Books! did not disappoint. I never thought about incorporating what had worked into a marketing plan that would fit my needs and budget into the future. I think it's just human nature, like a cow, to think the grass on the other side of the fence is greener. Whatever we haven't done is what we think we need to do because somebody somewhere says so--and we think they know more than we do.

This book really does have something for every author minus the hype that is so prevalent in books on marketing. I have read many books on writing and marketing for authors but this book is by far the most comprehensive I have seen. The author combines a well-researched, almost technical manual, with a very practical and user-friendly style. The author provides a great conversation on traditional verses inde publishing without the prejudicial view that most authors have about one or the other.

The author speaks with the voice of one who has been there through the good, the bad, and the ugly of book publishing and marketing. He tells it like it is and offers practical ideas to help those of us who are flooded with confusing and contradictory information.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. Read it once and then go back to it again and again as a reference.
