During the process of releasing my humor book, Musings on Minutiae, I did a ton of research on how to market it and find a readership. As previously mentioned, I read a lot of great books on the subject, learned a ton, and built a pretty solid foundation for myself.
Recently, I had several readers ask me what books I would recommend. After several times typing out the book titles, why I liked them, and what I learned, it made sense to devote an article to my Top 5 favorite books about book marketing. And yes, I realize how redundant that sounds.
So in addition to my previous articles on how to promote your book via social networking, I introduce a new article devote to my favorite marketing books:
5 Titles on Book Marketing and Promotion that You Need to Read
Like all others, this article is sure to receive updates as I find a new volume that I find to be especially informative. I still have several more installments of the “Social Networking” series planned, but if you have suggestions or feedback on any of them, let me know. Unlike your best friend, I actually WANT your honest opinion!
During the process of releasing my humor book, Musings on Minutiae, I did a ton of research on how to market it and find a readership. I read a lot of great books on the subject and what felt like a million websites trying to absorb as much as I could on the process.
What I realized is that while there are a ton of ideas out there, a lot of them are just rehashes of one another, and many marketing techniques require quite a bit of money that most authors do not seem to have just laying around.
I decided to write a series of articles about my personal experience with marketing my own book which will detail techniques that have worked for me and led to sales of my title. My word is by no means professional or the best advice, but what works for one person typically works for another. I hope you’re able to make a million dollars, and I can’t wait to see the film adaptation of your book.
The newest installment, Promoting Your Book Online through Paperbackswap.com, is available now!
More articles to come in this series! If you have suggestions or feedback on any of them, let me know. I promise I’m not like that one guy you work with who just doesn’t want to hear it!
