Overview

How does an author best get book reviews? What of interviews, blogs and social media? How can a new author expect to be seen while crowding the lane with other authors of his/her genre?

Marketing Your Book on a Budget is tiny for a reason; any author can afford it. But be prepared for the endless information enclosed. You'll never wonder again about the best ways to speak up about your book, get free advertising, or learn why postcards can help you get the word out faster and easier than any other way.

It's easy to say you're going to market your book, far more difficult to actually do it, but this handy guide will help you every step of the way, even while your heart is pumping wildly the first time you have to speak about your book to someone else.

    I received this free for an honest review.

    The Good
    The ideas are simple and easy to implement in the small amount of time most authors have between
    writing and editing. While a few are the same techniques preached over and over, there are many I
    found new and creative.

    Not only are there a multitude of great ideas to use, there are a number of resources listed that the
    reader may not be aware of. This is so much better than some of the other books out there that tell you
    to find out where your readers are, but don't give you a clue where to start looking.

    The Not-So-Good
    To be honest, I didn't find anything I didn't like about this book, except maybe that it was shorter than I
    would have liked. However, the simple fact that it is a short book makes it great for quick references.

    The Overall
    I would recommend How to Market Your Book on a Budge by Kathryn Elizabeth Jones for any writer
    looking for a quick reference guide with fresh ideas.

    As a small business owner and an author, marketing is always on my mind. To be honest, I was hoping for but not expecting something new from this book.

    It's true that I had seen many of the tips before, but Jones expanded on them in new ways.

    The author not only gives ideas of "what" to do, she gives the "how" and even the "why." There are helpful links throughout the book, as well as tips to find others.

    This is a book I will refer back to over and over.

    As a professional editor, I feel compelled to mention that there were some grammatical errors throughout--but reading is still smooth, and they don't detract from the excellent resources in the book.

    I recommend this to anyone needing a motivation boost to start or continue the marketing journey.
