    Worth Every Penny (and then some!)

    Larry D. Bohall, author of Martyr's Cry (ISBN 1591295327): This book, along with The Complete Guide to Self-Publishing by Tom and Marilyn Ross, should be in every author's library (I have them on the corner of my desk) and need to be referred to often. If an author will do what Kremer suggests (do something everyday to promote their book), they will sell books. And Kremer has enough suggestions in this volume to keep an author busy for years.

    The Classic Reference Book for Book Promotion

    John Kremer hits a home run with this spectacular classic reference on how to market books. Whether you are an author or a publisher, this book is a must! Every useful promotional idea you might think of is included here, from the most traditional methods to guerrilla marketing techniques. In fact, this book is so packed with creative ideas for marketing books that it's easy to make it part of your marketing campaign. Everything from book cover design and redesign tips, to web site listings in directories and search engines, to getting yourself onto television programs (even news programs sell books) is covered. Simply make a commitment to implement two ideas from this book each week for a few months, and watch your sales soar! What I love the most about 1001 WAYS TO MARKET YOUR BOOKS is the way it inspires me to ask myself, 'What am I willing to do to promote my book?' Kremer makes the point that any good book can become successful when it is properly promoted so buyers know what it's about, why they need it, and how they can buy it. If you are looking for the very best reference on promoting books, look no further. This is it! ....................... ........

    An insider¿s guide to publishing success

    I read this book from cover to cover when I first bought it (over 700 pages!). The inside of my copy looks like a rainbow from all the colors of highlighter pen I¿ve used. Every page is jammed with vital information. Kremer provides essential pathways to success for every facet of publishing promotion and marketing. Applying his pragmatic tips to your particular book is an easy process because he includes so many different types of books and book markets in his detailed descriptions. I have been using many of the provided ideas to generate sales for my small press. 1001 Ways to Market Your Books has been one of my best investments and I highly recommend it to anyone who has made a commitment to increasing sales.

    Great book for authors

    Reviewed by Ted Lea, author of 'When I Grow Up I'm Going to be a Millionaire (A Children's Guide to Mutual Funds)'. This book has helped us sell many books - it is loaded with ideas both for authors and publishers. It could take a lifetime to follow up on all the recommendations and suggestions that John Kremer has provided. If you are an author - buy it, read it and read it again over and over again. Great stuff.

    Fabulous Guide to Marketing

    So packed with details,ideas, and options, I find it difficult to imagine that there are ONLY 1001 Ways included! This book should be in the library of anyone thinking about writing a book, self-publishing a book, or looking to make their book successful with a 'real' publisher. If you are not a marketing type, cruise through this book with a highligter and you will find things to fit your temperment. And for those who are eager to market, by revisting Kremer's book regularly you will be reminded of some strategy that you can put into motion today. 101 Ways to Market Your Books is even a fun read, filled with tidbits about real books, authors and publishers.
