|This certainly isn't the only book on how to
market your book, but it's one of the best. It's so good because
it has so very many ideas about marketing your book.
In fact, there are so many it can be overwhelming at first. So
start with the table of contents and get a sense of the way this
book works. Ground yourself in the first three chapters, so you
understand what marketing is all about and your place in the
scheme of things.
Next, page through the rest of the book and see what strikes
your fancy. The more often you do this the better, particularly in
the beginning. The goal isn't to try to do everything in the book,
but find the gems that fit you and your book.
Chapter 13, on distribution, and Chapter 14 on working with bookstores
are truly helpful - in fact, those two chapters alone are reasons to buy
this book long before you're ready to market your book. Those
chapters are key because you need to understand how distribution
and bookstores really work.
I give it 5 coffee cups - making it a must have for any one who
wants to sell a book, self-published or not.
Kremer also runs
BookMarket.com. It's a gold mine too, but not a substitute for
the book. It's worth spending time with both.
