     I’m a fan of Randy Susan Meyers. Ever since I heard her speak at the 2010 Backspace Conference. Here first novel, The Murderer’s Daughters, is exquisite. I’m 100 pages in and I can’t wait to get back to it. So when I saw she co-wrote What To Do Before Your Book Launch I had to pick it up.




    Randy Susan Meyers and M.J. Rose provide an intimate portrait of what happens to a writer during the book launch process. It reminded me of what Anne Lamott’s book Bird By Bird does for the writing life.




    They provide real life examples and insights from insiders in the business. They help authors manage expectations and learn when to speak up and how to put their best foot forward.




    I appreciated their chapter on manners for authors–it’s really about being nice. Genuinely nice.




    The writer’s launch “ten commandments” are rules every author should live by.




    Once my book is published, I know I’ll be re-reading her chapter on consolation for bad reviews, where she doesn’t shy away from talking about the pain of reading them and how hard it is to not be hurt by them.




    Many authors will find her timeline for the year before publication useful. If you’re not a great planner, it’s an indispensable guide to when things need to happen.

    Useful, practical information

    I wish I had heard about this resource sooner - the advice was very practical and useful, and a fun easy read to boot. I'm hoping it helps when my book comes out :)

    Great Read

    As a newly published author, I found this book extremely helpful, along with helping me think outside the box in how I can market and promote myself and my work.
