Whether you're an aspiring author or an already established one, I think the one thing you can agree on is that marketing is hard. We aren't taught how to market our books, so the whole concept of getting them out there is a mystery. That's why it's so important to have books like this, books that take the mystery out of the process and show us how to get our books out into the world to be seen, hopefully, by many potential readers. I really like how this book is set up, how it's broken into parts and subcategories to cover everything you need to know about the process. I really like how it explains not just the marketing aspect but what comes before that - the publishing process. I think this is all information that everyone needs to know before they hit publish (if self-publishing) or send their baby off to a traditional publisher. It is such valuable information that everyone with a dream to publish can surely benefit from and will want to keep referring back to throughout their career.
