I've spent a year marketing my book, My Life at AOL,
and want to share with other authors what I learned about marketing.
Here's what I wish I had done differently, and first. Don't waste
your precious time and money on methods that don't get results!
I read your e-book, Best Bang for Your Book. I should
say, ?devoured it.? It's awesome. I loved it, every word. Talk about
?right message to the right audience at the right time? -- this is
exactly the kind of input I've been seeking for the past 2 months
as I've begun the process of marketing my own book.
+ You cover so many different marketing methods. I really like the
comprehensiveness of the book. The book is packed with useful tips
that are a great resource for both the experienced writer as well
as the novice.
+ I loved hearing about your experiences, especially in the ?early
days? when you tried to get the book published the ?traditional? way.
I learned a tremendous amount about book publishing just by hearing
what you went through.
+ The numerous experiences of other writers: This is the book's greatest
strength -- the way you've gathered together so many experiences of
so many writers and blended them together into an easy-to-read yet
delightful editorial tapestry.
+ I read your entire book in one sitting! Can't remember the last time
I did that. Please put me on your mailing list: let me know when you
write another book; I'll buy it sight unseen!?

"Your book was like a knowledgeable friend helping to confirm where
BEST to spend OUR OWN dollars. And secondly you helped in rewriting
my press release and what to expect of it. Wow! Where to spend your
bucks for the greatest percentage return, together with helpful
hints. Wow, again." -- Steve Knight, author, 1853 Los Angeles Gangs
+ I have to say your Best Bang book is great. I have
a long list of new ideas to try, thanks to you.? -- Bill Neugent,
