The Aspiring Author's Guide: Write Your Marketing Strategy: Four Exercises to Help You Think Strategically About Your Book Marketing Kindle Edition

Top customer reviews
This is less of a guide and more of a workbook. Luna provides some exercises to make an author think through what her marketing assets are, what her goals are, who her target audience is and how she should communicate with it.
At the end of the book is a list of extremely useful resources for the aspiring author.
The book is well set out and the exercises build on one another in a logical way. They are not particularly taxing, but do require some thought and will give someone who works through them some good ideas about where to begin with their marketing strategy.
My one criticism of the book is that some of the exercises are not as clear as they might be, particularly the ones concerning the target audience. It was only when I read this for the second time that I realised how it worked. Counterintuitively, I really enjoyed the exercise in which the author is instructed to compare herself with authors who have inspired her. This should lead to utter depression, but is, instead, fun and affirming.
This is useful book for those who are new to marketing their work and will repay the time anyone spends working through the exercises.
I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review. As an aspiring author, about to publish my first book, I can say with certainty that the author covers a lot of the critical aspects needed in order to be a successful author. An excellent book if you are a new author starting out and clueless about where to start. It’s packed with tips and exercises to really help you focus and map out a marketing strategy that will work for you. The author has really done the heavy lifting… you just need to settle down and follow her lead. Definitely worth adding this to your collection if you are trying to kick-start your writing career.

This book helps you come up with that plan, with well-thought out exercises and encouragement at every step. Recommended.
A must read for any aspiring self-publisher or published author. A simple doable systematic guide on getting yourself out there and seen.
Very well written by someone who know what they are talking about and who is doing what they are talking about.
This is such a nice change – someone who is practicing what they preach!
This is a systematic approach to creating and managing your online persona as a writer before and during publication to ensure visibility for your published prose. From your Author Platform to other usable and useful social media platforms to getting noticed. The need for an e-mail list and a few gentle hints of or for usable software and services.
With its well-thought exercises, this book will help you set a pretty awesome marketing strategy, which includes defining your audience and planning ahead. It will also show you how to get an overview of a book’s market situation, kind of like seeing a forest from above. It's not an approach you find in many similar books, and it shows that the author really knows what she's talking about. An absolute must-have!
It’s not a how-to book, though, and sometimes it will lean a bit too much toward an ineffable, inspirational approach, kind of what you’d find on self-help books. I find that cool, but not exactly what I prefer in my education books. Still, The Aspiring Author’s Guide will certainly help all newbie and to-be authors set their goals and get where they want!
I'd definitely read more from this author, and I'm looking forward to next installments.
