If you’re a writer, you know how hard it can be to write a book. If you’re a published writer, you’ll also know that marketing that book is harder still. How I Sold 80,000 Books by Alina Rutkowska takes some of the mystery out of book marketing. This is a comprehensive breakdown of how the author uses social media and other methods to get books in front of readers, and get them to buy—again and again. Not all of the author’s methods will work for everyone, but there’s sure to be a nugget or two of pure gold here for you, whether you’re just writing that first book, or you’ve already published one or more.
Included in this book are links to book review and promotion sites, a video on the author’s marketing methods, and interviews with other successful indie authors. This is a useful guide to self-publishing that should be in your reference library.
I give this one four stars.
