A "must" for every author and publisher looking to get their books "out there"
Trepidation was the term I'd use to describe my attitude when I glanced at this 700 page "how to" book. I had just finished writing another novel and was not prepared to launch into a book of this size. However, the name intrigued me. I needed to know exactly what each of the 1001 ways entailed in order to be successful as an author.
Not long after opening the cover, I found myself drawn into the meat of this author's experiences and realized that this book contained all that was needed to move forward with a successful marketing plan for my novel. Unwittingly, my highlighter was taken up and the pages marked and referenced for my own use. John Kremer has compiled an amazing list of ideas and steps to take for any publisher or author to successfully market their inventory. The book reads more as an in-depth reference list than as a book read cover-to-cover. Indeed, that is not how the author intended it to be utilized, and wisely so. Various aspects of marketing books are presented for all levels and areas of authorship, publishing, agency, distributing, etc. The reader will be impressed with his ability to reference any area of immediate interest and find the answer listed within the pages of this book.
My recommendation is for every author, agent and publisher to own a personal copy of 1001 Ways to Market Your Books. I plan to continue utilizing the information, advice and suggestions listed within its pages now as I market my current novel and in the future as I work through the next in the series.
I have already recommended 1001 Ways to Market Your Books to several other authors I have the opportunity to associate with and will recommend it during an upcoming lecture for my local Writer's League.
Today is the day to get started on marketing your books. You can do this by following the suggestions in 1001 Ways to Market Your Books.
