This book bundles lists of all the popular book promotion sites and resources into one place, complete with links. You could probably come up with your own list that includes many - maybe even most - of these resources, but doing so would take many, MANY hours. Here, the work has been done for you, all for the princely sum of 99 cents.
If you place any kind of value on your time (and you SHOULD), you know that that's a steal. Additionally, the author promises to periodically update the book for free... all of which makes buying this little book a no-brainer.
"You can ask your reader who is getting a free book to consider leaving a positive review, or no review at all if they don't like it, which I think is fair. I mean, you gave them a free copy. If you can't say anything nice... don't say anything at all, right?"
I am still on the fence on this issue of "free book = appreciative review" or "friendship=happy review". After all, the free book was given in hopes that I would review it on Amazon. If only positive reviews are included, then the whole Amazon review system is of little value to someone in the decision of spending their hard-earned money. (I know gaming happens but it isn't that hard to spot fake positive reviews for the most part). At the same time, authors are real people with real feelings and everyone deserves to be treated respectfully.
I appreciated the comment about proofreading and also not spamming the link to one's book everywhere. It did bother me that the book isn't really what will be updated, it seems it is the website that will be updated. In the age of monetized clicks, that brought out my inner cynic.
While this little e-book wasn't really a lot of help for me, I agreed with the author that for the technology-challenged, having a vetted list is much better than the mess that can result from a poor Google search. If you fall in that category, at 99 cents or 1.01, it is probably worth it.
As you can see, my annoyance was worth only one star, since I gave four stars for an easy to use guide, that promises frequent updates. How about updating those 99 cent remarks?
I had already ferreted out many of the sources mentioned and I totally agree with the author. It is very time consuming. The book is worth the three bucks to save all that drudgery.
The simple fact here is that all the hard work of finding sites and links has been done for you, you'd be nuts not to spend a lousy 99c to get this. You spend more on a coffee and don't even blink at making that decision so save several (at least) hours of your life, get something that DOES help you promote your work and get out there and do it.
