Editorial Reviews

Charlotte Boyett-Compo
Lida Quillen's Practical Tips for Online Authors is a must read! At a time when ebook authors are eagerly searching for ways to promote their works in this new medium, Quillen has come up with a definitive guide for newcomer and old hat authors alike. ...You'll find timely tips from bestselling authors and professional explanations for everything you will ever need to succeed in online publishing. Run, don't walk, to buy this book. You'll be glad you did.
Kim D. Headlee
While unabashedly geared for the "prepublished" ebook author of speculative fiction, much of the advice crosses genre boundaries and proves useful to writers aiming for traditional print markets, as well. In fact, with the Internet becoming a major force in the world of book marketing, authors at all rungs of the literary ladder of success will benefit from this handy and well-organized reference. The hypertext references make it easy to skip to specific topics...

"...the information for unpublished authors is a treasure trove...saving you countless hours of Internet time trying to network and find the sites to help you in your quest to get published. This book is a must buy for writers!"
Sandy Cummins
As a book reviewer, I pride myself on the speed with which I can read a book - not this one. It took me HOURS to read. Why? Because I had to stop every couple of pages, dial up the internet and visit links that were so pertinent to my career that I could not wait till I had finished the book.

I am not exaggerating. Every new topic combines invaluable advice and really clever tips with absolutely awesome links. ...Practical Tips for Online Authors is worth its weight in gold.
