How do I get my book discovered? Its a question every writer asks, whether its their first book, tenth book, or if the book still needs to be published.

Every year the amount of books published grows exponentially and your story only gets lost in the shuffle. You know you should be marketing, so you start a website, maybe a newsletter or blog, but youre really just talking

This is one of the best books that I've read about marketing, and in just the right moment to help me out. It is a fast read, just a few hours, on the point and full of useful information about building your platforms. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about creating a growing platform, not just for authors, it has helpful information for everyone. I had to underline almost the entire book, so many good examples are there.

Tydligen så är detta bok 2 i en serie. Riktigt lärorik, lättläst och nu väntar jag med spänning på bok 3. Det ämne som jag tyckte togs upp mest i den här boken var att skapa en mail-lista och skicka ut information till dina följare.

Riktigt läsvärd!

Once again, Mandi Lynn and Bethany Atazadeh nail some well needed advice for authors trying to grow and expand their platform, and as someone thats planning to expand this summer, this came at the right time. They speak as youre in a convention session with you, trading advice with each other. And they address the one flaw of social media, despite its power to reach billions: it can all go away tomorrow, and if you dont have your own site, etc, youre finished.

Thankfully, its not that hard to get

This is a must-read for writers looking to build and grow their online presence which will equate to creating superfans and selling your book. They break down specific strategies on a variety of social media platforms. I wish I had this book when I first started writing!

In this second installment of the Marketing for Authors series, Mandi Lynn and Bethany Atazadeh build on the foundations laid by the first book. With evidence of their charming personalities speaking through their words, it is as if we are all sitting together and having a conversation.

This time, the focus is on building an author website and social media, specifically how to grow your author platform. With special care given to YouTube and Pinterest, this book offers great advice to writers

So my true rating is like a 4.3, as I thought it was better than book 1 of the series, but not a 5/5. This book definitely offers some advice that i've never heard of and expands on the principles of book one, "How Your Book Sells Itself". I have already implemented some of Lynn's strategies on my website. For example her advice to have a contact form instead of offering your email to avoid spam bots finding you. I am also considering upgrading my pinterest to a business account and starting to ...more

I knew I was going to buy this book right after I finished reading "How your book sells itself".
Mandi Lynn and Bethany Atazadeh are two successful authors who speak from their own experiences and approach marketing differently.
The main author of this second book is Mandi and I can tell she is very knowledgable about SEO, websites, newsletters and search-based tools. This book made me rethink completely my author platform and taught me so many things! I recommend this series to all my fellow
