Advice From A Friend Over Coffee,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months! (Kindle Edition)
I just finished reading Locke's "How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months!" and when I was done, it had felt like I had just sat with a friend at Starbucks to get advice on publishing success. I deal with book marketing advice all the time and I sift through good and bad. This is a book that doesn't go into great detail on all the specifics you can do to publish and market your book, but Locke nails the fundamentals regarding book marketing in this new publishing era.
His tips will guide authors to simple things they can do to get the word out about their books. While the advice is relatively simple, it does involve work and commitment on the author's part and Locke makes this abundantly clear. He lays out the secret to his success and does it in an easy to understand way and without pretension.
If you're looking for a magic bullet to create your best seller, then "How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months!" is not for you. If you're looking to be impressed with a textbook filled industry slang, case studies, and pretty charts and graphs, then this is not a book for you. But if you want to sit at the table with a man who has done the improbable and pick his brain for his secrets, then you'll enjoy and cherish this little gem.
