"Over 75 Good Ideas for Promoting Your Book" is not the most original title for a book, but it's certainly an accurate one.

This how-to booklet (it's only 72 pages) is filled to the brim with tips and tricks for getting your newly published book covered in the media and read by the masses. Each tip is highlighted in bold, with an easy-to-follow explanation underneath. Side-bars provide extra insight into promoting your work; instead of just saying to write a press release, this book shows you how. Within these pages, you'll learn how to make a commercial, how to get your book into bookstores and how to give testimonials.

Patricia L. Fry is the author of 10 books, so clearly she's had practice in promoting her books. Though most of her tips seem like common sense, they're presented in a straight, no-nonsense fashion that anyone can follow.

If you've just finished writing your latest nonfiction book or novel, start preparing your partials and query letters. Once you've mailed them, immediately buy this book and map out your promotion strategy.
