I wish I would have read Madi Preda’s book before I spent 3K for a Promo Specialist! I am going to address the merits of this book from two modes; one from a newbie author and the other from an educator’s point of view.
As a newbie author I find myself literally drowning in all the social media world and especially for an Indie Author. I can’t say enough about this book and what a powerhouse of theory, research and tools are listed here. The book is packed with real links to some of the best sites and resources for all authors. Coming from an educator’s view I can honestly say that this book is very easy to read. The format is very organized and it flowed very well.
How to Promote and Market Your Book is my new ‘GO TO’ manual now for all my writing needs. Thank you Madi Preda for writing this book!

I'm going to start with a quote “You can write the most wonderful book in the world. But if people don’t know about your book they won’t know to buy it.”~Madi Preda

Madi has written a must-read book. This handbook is crammed full of useful ideas, step-by-step instructions and case studies full of helpful information.

Writing a book is a HUGE dream for most people and achieving that dream is like climbing a mountain. Now it's easier to write a book and with self-publishing, hitting the button and seeing your book takes minutes. Yet this is only the beginning. Publishing a book, Madi says, is like "Opening a Small Business", and a writer needs to look at marketing themselves as the product rather than just focusing on the book. Readers follow authors not their books. Just think about some of the great writers and let that statement sink in.

There is a great piece written for this book by book reviewer Lynn Worton which I really appreciated. Madi and Lynn encourage authors to make book reviewers and book bloggers feel special because they are an important part of book sales. This just backs up my recent book review challenge series where I promoted the need for more book reviews.

Even if you haven't self-published, publishers no longer take your book and do everything else for you while you sit back and write the next, authors are expected to market their own books and there are a whole world of ideas and ways to do this inside this gem of a book. I don't hesitate to give it 5*'s and it should be a part of any writer's promotional plans.

I picked this up on Smashwords following the recommendation of a friend. As an aspiring author I've been reading everything I can get my hands on regarding marketing/promoting books sales. I found this book to be helpful in a variety of ways. For instance, the author explains how to develop a marketing plan and includes a case study for a children's book complete with links to related blogs, groups, magazines etc. She covers all the bases with information and insight from writing a synopsis to organizing pre-order campaigns and advertising. I would recommend this to anyone interested in learning how to market their own books.

I have not only read, but have had the good fortune of Madi Preda applying the very techniques she mentions to my books. I can vouch that she knows what she is talking about. Madi has put her experience into an easily understood format that will IMMEDIATELY help every author. If you want book sales, I highly recommend her book.

Read in July, 2014

This is a great guide. The introduction is simple: “Have you ever wondered why some authors make a fortune on their writing while so many others who have written wonderful books seem to struggle?”

My advice is: read the entire book; digest it and study it again, chapter by chapter. If this had been around at the time I self-published my first book, my own story as an author might have a happy ending! Yet, I struggled through various strategies, alone, with little or no advice - and at a time when the only tips came from forums. So yes, there are strategies in this book which I have stumbled across anyway (through networking on Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads) for example, some of the suggestions for getting reviews.

But for new authors, maybe not so.

This guide combines excellent PR techniques with strategic marketing: just about everything you need to know from how to write a press release to social media networking, and filled with case studies, which show real examples of the theory being put into practice. The one thing I should warn however, is that following a guide like this requires time, effort and patience. It’s maybe not something you can easily fit around a day job, as I’ve found myself doing, but a concentrated campaign akin to running a new business. So new writers take heed - if you crave success, then this guide is definitely for you!
