I was given an advance review copy of this book - but I then went on to buy the paperback anyway, because I loved it so much and knew I'd want to refer to it again and again. Debbie Young writes in an engaging and authoritative manner, and clearly has many years of experience helping clients sell their books. Even though I know quite a lot about this topic already, and have tried many of the tasks in the book at one time or another, I still found lots here to inspire me and many techniques or ideas that I haven't yet tried.
This book is informative, eminently useful to any author - self published or not - and manages to cover a wide range of topics without skimping on detail. An absolute must-buy for any new author, and a valuable resource for all.
She leads the reader through topics such as, targeting markets, selling locally, harnessing the internet, pitching to a bookshop and much more. Well worth buying if you want to construct a proper sales campaign and give your book the push that it deserves.
I've never written a book, but I am interested in marketing, particularly indie books.
Too many authors do all that hard work - write and publish their novel - then sit back and wonder why it isn't selling.
There wasn't anything ground-breaking in Debbie's advice, but I'm not necessarily the target audience. I do know that indie authors often need to have the obvious pointed out to them.
Creating an online presence is essential - be it a blog or a website. We live in the age of Google and there's nothing more frustrating (to me, a potential customer) than finding `zero results' when I want to learn more about an author before I turn my cash into copy.
So when should you buy this book? When you're about to publish? No! Buy it during the writing process. There are days when you need a break from your book and what better distraction could there be than to plan your marketing campaign? Many of Debbie's recommendations need to be in place before you finish writing and when the going gets tough, I think you will be inspired and motivated by her ideas.
Me? Well, I so enjoyed imagining myself at a radio interview, grinning from the cover of a local magazine and being toasted at the champagne-soaked launch party that I may need to write a book of my own...
Debbie writes with authority, especially when she reinforces the need for reviews, particularly those published on Amazon. She cautions against the over the top, five-star-written-by-friends review. And she's right to do so - but this book deserves a five star review, so that's what it's getting!
The answer is to market it, to get the word out - and to do that, this delightfully written "How To" book could be your answer.
Written in a friendly, simple, manner it is full of hints, tips, do's and don'ts. Every Indie author should have a copy!
I recently spent £90+ on a seminar to learn about self publicity for authors when all I had to do was buy this book - it taught me a lot more for a lot less money.
This morning I was dreading the next stage of publishing my book, now I'm actually looking forward to putting her advice into practice.
