That said, this has all that information in one place and well organized.
I would say I'd recommend this book to someone who has started writing and is just looking into publishing, so they can get an idea of what is ahead of them, or for a newly published author looking for something with a collection of marketing advice in one place. For those of us published and who have already scoured the internet and magazines and other sources for marketing advice, there's little new to find here.
The book is divided into three parts. Part I is about the digital revolutions and how they can help a struggling author to get better known. Part II is how to build platforms and a "cool" online presence. Part III is about how to let the world know about your book. I liked the whole book, but the particular chapters that I really felt drawn to were the chapters on one's attitude toward marketing, and the chapter on news releases. I might add that one's attitude toward the new technology has a lot to do with the success of their marketing endeavors.
I appreciated the many references to online resources in addition to what was written in the book. I looked many of them up and found them to be quite helpful. I have read many books on book marketing, but this book had a lot of ideas that were fresh and new to me and current with what is going on in the publishing world. I recommend it to any struggling new author as well as established ones. It is in keeping with the times and well worth the cost of the book -- Valerie Lull, Author, Ten Healtlhy Teas
This was just one example of the author's direct way of speaking to the reader, as if you are having a conversation with him, not to mention that I found the point to be profound, funny, and unexpected in a topic such as this. I highly recommend this book!
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.
