This is an 88 page long book of tips and advice for anyone that might contemplate dipping their virgin toes into marketing a self published book. It's probably more use to the complete novice than anybody else. It's concise and to the point, touching on everything from the creation and formatting of your book to the eventual marketing and management of your publication, be it an ebook or hard copy. Websites and applications are recommended, some more useful than others and there are a few glarin ...more

I published a book years ago. It is still selling slow but steady on amazon and other sites. Through the years I learned much on my own. I thought I had it all down-pat. However this book taught me things I either didn't know, or forgot years ago. It is all the basics you need, and more. For example, comparing how amazon rates books with how Goodreads rates books. The book is deceptive for its simplicity...but that is exactly why it is such a valuable resource! Buy this book. It is well worth it ...more

For self-publishers, the how-to book to top all how-to books!

Let’s start at the beginning. Jamie Cawley writes in her Introduction: “As a non-fiction author that started out writing how to guides, my personal philosophy is 'why use 1,000 words when 50 will do?'”—and then she sticks to it. She “eats her own dog food,” as it were.

4.5 stars. A succinct, clear guide for those looking to self-publish, with some excellent templates. Although a paper copy is available, my recommendation for the reader would be to get the e-copy to make best use of the embedded links, and to read via computer.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

One of the most helpful features is templates for the trickiest things to write, like short author biographies, book descriptions, and press releases. There's also inval

As a hopeful author one day, I am glad to have read this book since it has opened my eyes to other means of publishing and marketing!

This book was good in that it gave me a few more wrinkles in the self-publishing book marketing process. Much of it I had read before in other similar books which shows consistency. The book also reinforced my desire to try out blogging and blog tours as a marketing mechanism.

Don't be brought in by books like this. Self-publishing takes a lot of very hard work, and time; there are no easy steps to make it in self-publishing. Yet, it's good to learn marketing techniques because the publishing business likes authors who are knowledgeable on marketing.
