Any authors and readers who’ve checked out Kindle Fire Dept.’s blog and Facebook page will know that they not only have the latest great books, Kindle Fire apps, and games, but they’re also very professional and super fab to deal with. So I was honoured recently when they asked me to contribute to their new book about marketing for authors E-Book Marketing Today – An Author’s Guide. Along with some really helpful and fantastic info, there are also contributions from other authors…
About the book…
In an increasingly competitive e-book market, authors who understand how social media and online promotional techniques work have a distinct advantage. E-Book Marketing Today features the inside scoop on advertising from one of the biggest e-book promoters, extensive research into the tools and techniques authors are using to reach readers online, and marketing tips from a number of best-selling and up-and-coming authors who all together have sold well over 1,000,000 copies.
I wish I had more time to spend reading all those books out there on marketing. Another twenty-four hours in the day should do it, or failing that, a clone! But this is one that I would definitely recommend you get your hands on.
It’s your turn out in WG2E land! Which marketing books would you recommend? Have you used any unusual techniques to gain readers and sales?
Happy Marketing! Sibel XX
