Useful info in this short book

This is actually a very short book, followed by two hours of excerpts of Melissa Caudle's other audiobooks. So, be forewarned, you're not getting four hours of marketing advice. That said, though, there were lots of great tips and ideas that I will use. The narrator over-enunciates, and takes a little getting used to.

Loving these Ideas

This book provides a step by step blueprint for writing, marketing, and publishing your book in a short period. I've been wanting to write a book forever and now that I'm equipped with a proven formula for success I feel motivated to get my ideas out to the world. I finished reading Book Launch in one evening then I sat down at my laptop and started brainstorming a book idea that's been in my head for at least two years.

Useful Tips

As an aspiring self-publishing author myself, I will use this book to a great extent. The process of actually releasing a finished book is very vague. I had a somewhat basic idea of how to hire freelancers for cover designs, but needed clarification and guidance. This book is loaded with practical advice and a clear roadmap to get your book released!
