I was shopping at Barnes and Noble this week and decided to check the writing/publishing section to see if my books are there. I was surprised to find such a small section of books for writers and authors and nothing—nothing—on book promotion. Still, one of the largest sections in nonfiction seems to be diet, dieting and cooking (in other words, foods).
I now have 6 five-star reviews for Talk Up Your Book at Amazon. Check them out. Here are some quotes:
“Talk up Your Book is jam-packed with helpful hints for the beginning as well as the multi-published author. You’ll find everything you need to know about building a platform, using social media, and how to prepare for author appearances. Ms Fry doesn’t just tell you how to land speaking engagements, she tells you what to say. This helpful resource belongs on every author’s shelf.” Bestselling novelist, Margaret Brownley
“I recommend this effort highly, especially for writers and authors who feel a need for greater personal engagement in the marketing process.” Lucinda Crosby
“An excellent comprehensive guide for authors.” Nancy Barnes
If you have a book to sell, you need to pursue the kind of exposure you get from personal contact—public speaking, radio interviews, face-to-face socializing, book festivals, interviews and such. Talk Up Your Book tells you why this is important and it walks you through the steps and presents the resources you need in order to be a more effective sales agent for your book.
