    Interesting. but dated

    First of all, this book was published in 2001 and a lot of technology and sources has changed since then. However, there is still a lot of good information to be taken away on the generalities of promotion on-line. I just wish that when it said it was an updated version, that it had meant that it was a current update, not 2001.

    Timeless Marketing Advice

    With technology changing as fast as it does, I was a little hesitant about spending time in a book published nearly eight years ago. However, there is some timeless marketing advice in this book that makes it well worth reading.

    Tired of Browsing for Web Sites?

    This book has saved me hours of trying to find good web sites to promote my own book. It has to be one of the best books on web sites around, and it is filled with accurate information. Excellent information on web site and web hosting strategies, using email, electronic newsletters, and selling your book online. If you are in self-publishing or thinking about writing a book, buy this one first!

    Worth Repeating

    Ditto to the praise and compliments given to the authors of How to Publish and Promote Online. Practical advice told in a common sense manner that prompts one to think creatively towards publishing. The book sets the standards in helping others accomplish their goals without feeling intimidated by the process. In a line ¿ it¿s not a book but a bible for those looking to self publish, promote and find the time to keep writing.

    My copy is dog-eared and ragged!

    Jam-packed with practical suggestions, this book is essential for every writer who has a computer! In addition to the chapters by M.J. Rose and Angela Adair-Hoy, the book includes success stories from other prominent online authors. These 'how-I-did-it' essays are inspiring for both new and experienced writers. I found many new resources and unusual ideas in this book (it contains over 500 links). The 58 chapters plus author comments are short and focused, and the index is extensive so you can easily flip to topics such as 'author chats' and 'book reviews.'

    Want Momentum & Success Online?

    The VA Festival of The Book changed the direction and momentum of my livelihood; that is where I met MJ Rose, co-author, of `How to Publish and Promote Online'. This meeting was long before this current book came out, and I began researching all I could find on how MJ Rose did what she did regarding publishing and promoting her own writing and achieving such success from it. MJ was, and continues to be, even in the current book, exceedingly generous in her help to all of us pursuing the business end of our writing. I followed her suggestions and ideas. They worked and continue to work. It was while reading and printing the many pages of Internet information on MJ , that I was then introduced to Angela Adair-Hoy and Angela in her own right, also extemely successful. Once again, I studied Angela, and followed her suggestions and ideas....They worked, and continue to do so. And now these two women, have co-authored a book, giving all writers interested in publishing their own words, especially online, with off line application as well, the how to's and the inspiration to do so ! It is quite clear, within the reading, that these two writers, followed their own instincts to their success, some against the norm; they share it with us in this offering. They have given us a template to success in our own writing, self-publishing endeavors. A template flexible enough to fit our own ideas within it, streamlined by MJ & Angela. `How to Publish & Promote Online' is presented with the sensitivity towards the writers of us , who choose the business of our writing to be as exciting and creative as the creating of the writing. Other leading writers, self publishers give their experience, within this book, which only adds to the already wonderful flavor of Rose & Adair-Hoy. In one condensed offering, we are given places to go to promote online, how it works, and continues to work for others. Real experiences from both MJ and Angela, leave no doubt in the readers mind, that as this information is applied, success is emanate and with momentum. I personally attest to the fact that the information contained within these pages is excellent, factual, extemely inspirational, efficiently presented and helpful. I have been applying some of it prior to the release of this edition, only due to my in-depth' research of these authors. And now to have it all plus so much MORE that I did not have, and did not even know I should be looking for is quite a literal writing , publishing gold mine. If you want a college course in success in Online publishing and promoting yourself, while having the fun and affection of the business end of your writing. This Book is One to Have ! My Momentum has catapulted. To Your Success ! Susan James, Author of: `Manifesting 101 :Essays & Tools for Creating' (Paperback) & Soon to be released from in E-book & Paperback, `17 Seconds to Wt.Loss/The Guide'.
