Simple, practical advice from a pro
"As an author of 3 books (Most recent: Who Moved My Mouse?: A Self-Help Book for Cats (Who Don't Need Any Help)), I have read a lot (A LOT, A LOT, A LOT) of "how to promote your book" books. My take on Patricia Fry's new book is that it's got a little something for everyone, from the nouveau author to the seasoned professional. For me, I spent a lot of time/money sending out promo mailers to libraries, so it was cool to discover here how I could check and see what libraries across the nation actually carry my book. The book includes sidebars from authors with their real-life stories of how they use promotions and what worked and what didn't. The layout of the book is clean, simple, and easy to follow. I also like the friendly conversational style of writing of the author."
- Dena Harris, author of 3 books
