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!
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.
