Millions of books a year are published, each of them vying for public attention. Lacking marketing and public relations skills, writers often find themselves disappointed by dismal sales. Patricia Fry’s Promote Your Book offers 250 ways to cut through the noise without spending a fortune.
Fry’s tips cover the early stages of the writing process from writing book proposals to cover design and soliciting an editor. Once a book is published, she doles out sensible suggestions on connecting your book to influential readers, expanding your internet reach, and placing your book for review.
Joyce Feurring delivers a soft-spoken but assertive performance in this must-listen for new and aspiring authors.
