Banyon Publishing is proud to acknowledge the fine work of Francine Silverman, as well as her dedication to the writing world in general.
In an alphabetical format for ease of use, Book Marketing from A-Z is packed with unique ideas from Advertising (Pros and Cons) to Zero Promotion (when the book sells itself). Whether the author of one or 100 titles, self-published or traditionally published, these contributors are brutally honest about their pleasures and pitfalls.
Hailing from all over the English-speaking world, they present their first-hand experiences with honesty and humor. “The nice thing about the book is the format – it’s not just names and addresses, but a brief personal narrative visit with a number of real writers, people like you and me who have experienced the glory and the gory side of pushing a product,” says reviewer Barbara Scott. http://www.curledup.com/bkmarket.htm
Readers will learn by their mistakes and adapt ideas in promoting their own books.
“This book contains everything a new (or even experienced) author needs to begin marketing,” writes book reviewer Jeremy Hoover. http://hooverreviews.blogspot.com. “Authors might be surprised to learn that there are many free things they can do to market their books!”
The 400-page paperback is available at http://www.buybooksontheweb.com (Category: Marketing).
