It starts with six Foundations, which you can see in the table of contents. The first is different to most marketing books: Get crystal clear on what you want and why. I suspect this is less about marketing and more about defining success, so from that viewpoint it’s a good starting point. If you don’t know what you want, how will you know when you get it?
The other five Foundations are more predictable: pick a target market, find out what they want, give them want they want, focus on adding value (not selling), and do what works. Not rocket science, but important foundations.
He then moves on to 39 ‘strategies’ for promoting yourself and your book (actually, these are tactics, not strategies. Strategy is what you’re trying to achieve. Tactics are the tools you use to achieve the strategy). Some of these ‘strategies’ are obvious (blog, Facebook, Twitter), some are less obvious (videos, optimising Amazon listings), and some are probably only useful to non-fiction writers (webinars, radio interviews).
It’s not an exhaustive list, as he doesn’t even mention social media networks like Tumblr and Instagram (popular with YA readers), and the chapters themselves gloss over the topic. The best chapter (on using Goodreads) wasn’t even written by the author, but by a guest contributor, as thought it was a guest post on a blog. In fact, most of this section read as though it were part of a series of blog posts.
Overall, this was okay, but books like Let’s Get Visible and How to Market a Book cover similar material in a lot more detail.
He outlines in clear and concise chapters that give you a roadmap on items that you must be aware of to market your Ebooks.
I am relatively new to Ebook Authorship and Selling of my Ebooks, and Tom has done his homework. If you go to Youtube and do a search for Tom Corson-Knowles you can listen to his interviews with top selling authors and you will get a glimpse of his attention to details and approaches to get Ebooks written and sold.
I want to be successful in my time writing and marketing my Ebooks and I know my time and money following Tom's work has steadied my journey in making a income with Amazon Kindle Ebooks.
I cannot leave this review without telling you that you need to look at his other books. He has them all outlined and created in a certain way that will guide you in apprehending and comprehending the art of Ebook authorship.
I've read other books by this author and am impressed by his solid, feet-on-the-ground approach to writing and marketing books.
There is a lot of valuable information in this book (and I personally do not like the word "bible" in a title because nothing is so all-encompassing to deserve the word) and I would honestly recommend it to any author who wants a book-marketing manual to follow.
The author is a "practical" rather than an academic author - exactly what people need
