Recommends it for: All writers
As a professional writer I wondered how many of these tips would be "old news" ... the answer is that this old dog has learned a lot of new tricks!

This was a remarkably informative and fast read, slowed down only by the author's extremely helpful inclusion of links to allow the reader to act immediately on the advice given. I found at least half a dozen things I could do right away. I'll do several more over the next few weeks and months.

The writing is clear and accessible, and I would recommen

An awesome resource for any self-published author, or an author looking to build her platform. Laura speaks to writers in a personable, accessible way, and shares a plethora of easily-digestible tips. This book was at my side when drafting the marketing plan for my next book, and I'll keep it handy for inspiration and tips throughout the process!

I've been researching ways to build my following so that when I publish a book I'll be ready. I read this book figuring I'd find a few ways to find potential readers that I hadn't heard before. While there are some things that I knew, like using social media, there were also ways that were very out-of-the-box ideas focused on marketing toward READERS and not just other WRITERS. That is something that makes this book stand out for me as a go-to resource.

77 Ways To Find New Readers, produced by Laura Pepper Wu of 30 Day Books com is a small pamphlet created to answer the typical author’s concerns on how to find and target new readers (and not just fellow authors).

I quickly read this book in one sitting, whilst awaiting a dental appointment. The tie-in of expected pain (dentally) and in my future adventures in publishing seemed compatible, although I felt slightly a charleton without as yet having an actual book ready to try out some of the liste

Laura Pepper Wu presents numerous ways to promote a self-published book, ranging from traditional in-store book signings to virtual book tours. Use the non-alphabetic glossary of ideas as a checklist to validate your current promotional strategy or add one or two more new tactics.

This is a book I read in bits and pieces. Sometimes I found something to dip into and try. A draw-back for e-book readers, at least with my Kindle, is that the illustrations come up very tiny and quite impossible to read.

There wasn't anything new in this book for me. I'm going to hang on to it, though, just in case.
