    "Packed with Information"

    As a new author starting out in my own DIY book tour, I found this book very valuable. There are ideas for venues, examples of emails, press releases and suggestions for advertising and marketing. I found the book a little heavy in the author's self promotion of her books and I couldn't tell if she felt like she needed to keep telling us about her accomplishments to secure our idea of her expertise or if she was "talking up her books" but all in all, I found many useful ideas in this book. I'm glad I have it to reference as I progress in through my book tour.
