I'm not only going to re-read this book regularly but I'm also going to contact Rob to help both for me and for my other authors.
There are chapters on a variety of strategies, and even if some of what Eagar teaches is not for you, there will undoubtedly be some that is. Some of the topics covered include establishing your expertise, making your mark with an author brand, websites, interviews, using amazon, social networking tips, working with publishers and agents, selling books through public speaking, and creating newsletters that get results and help sell books. The final chapters includes some extra marketing tips for fiction.
The strategies contained in this book might not be easy, but they can be effective. Some of them are not cheap, so if you are working on a shoe-string budget, you might have to pass on some or wait until you have a little more cash flow. However, other strategies can be done, and should be done, by any author who desires more sales.
After a quick read through, this book should be handy on the writer's shelf to use when working on marketing plans and strategies. It's a good guide with principles that will help authors that implement them. Even if you have other marketing books for writers, I suggest you add this one and use them all.
