it was ok
bookshelves: how-to

I probably would have appreciated this book more if I hadn't spent the last 2+ years working as a publisher. The information is good for anyone just getting into self-publishing, but it was a little to cheesy and evangelical for my taste.

Ariah How are the details on "marketing" in here? I need some ideas for http://cleanwaterforelirose.com

E. Chris Meh. The marketing section is more about how to go about finding a distributor, how to sell to universities and libraries, and selling to specialty stores. It is all pretty basic, but everyone needs to start from square one. So if you are looking for basic info, pretty good. If you are looking for more creative marketing strategies, not so good at all.
