    Sell More Books – Book Marketing and Publishing For Low Profile and Debut Authors – Rethinking Book Publicity After the Digital Media Revolutions. There it is.

There it is. The complete title, including subtitles. Why on earth would anyone want such a long title, anyway? Well, for the answer, read this book! In fact, read this book for every other reason you can think of to address the myriad of questions that the title raises, because - pardon the cliché – this really is a must read for low profile and debut authors. J. Steve Miller is thorough, inventive, practical and even entertaining in Sell More Books. Not only will you want to keep reading, you will want to re-read this book, making it one of your ‘go-to’ books on marketing. In fact, I plan to buy a print copy so that I can mark it up, even though I already own the e-version. It’s that good! He covers all the book marketing basics, beginning with a solid foundation in publishing itself. (Something he advises you need to understand in order to understand the marketing end of things.) Every chapter is full of easy to read and follow ‘how-to’s’ , is full of examples, and then ends with an action plan. As a successful, multi-published author he goes on to add even more credibility to his ideas by referencing and calling on other experts in the field, and he has provided for changes in the industry by linking to additional information and expanded chapters which can be accessed online. There are lots of great resources out there, but Sell More Books by J. Steve Miller is currently my favorite. I can’t recommend this book enough for anyone who is at all interested in marketing books – low profile, debut or just ‘wanna-be’. It is worth every word.

    Most marketing books are pretty much the same verse over and over with perhaps a few new ideas thrown into the mix. While this book is very much in the same vein as most of the best of book marketing advice out there, it’s more thorough and actionable than a lot of it and with a firm focus on marketing offline as well as on. Definitely worth the read and not outdated as yet.

    Let's face it. If you're an author, you want to sell books. Whether it's for monetary gain, enrichment for others, gaining exposure, or whatever, the bottom line is that you want to sell books. And there's nothing wrong with that. But the publishing and book arena has taken a huge hit ~ which isn't news to anyone that has been breathing. eBooks are taking the industry by storm. Traditional publishers are trying to keep up with the new lower price of eBooks and still trying to sell paperbacks. Self Let's face it. If you're an author, you want to sell books.

But the publishing and book arena has taken a huge hit ~ which isn't news to anyone that has been breathing. eBooks are taking the industry by storm. Traditional publishers are trying to keep up with the new lower price of eBooks and still trying to sell paperbacks. Self publishing has seen a dramatic increase because it's easier than ever to get your books out there. Nowadays, anyone can get their book published. But the key is selling that book. You can have fifty books to your name and have them published, but if they're not selling, what's the point? J. Steve Miller has written an excellent resource to help low-profile, not-yet-famous authors... Sell More Books. Utilizing today's social media potential, J. Steve Miller has compiled a comprehensive manual on what you should try, why you should try it, and how to git 'er done. I highly recommend this to author who are serious about marketing.

    Valuable information This book is jam-packed with creative marketing ideas. It covers the gammut from choosing a publisher to social media promotions. The only complaint I have is that it's a little out-of-date. The authors refer the reader to numerous websites and so many of the links are no good (even the book's own url) that I stopped looking up the sources after the fifth chapter. In other words, the book needs a major overhaul. Otherwise, I'd have given it a perfect rating.

    Steve Miller is a part of my Georgia Writers network, and I attended his workshop this past weekend. I purchased this book (the paperback version) for one reason: it is chock full of tips, ideas, instructions, data, testimonies, etc... on marketing and publishing, and it's invaluable to have access to this information all in one place. I like that Steve collaborates with other noteables, such as John Kremer and Blythe Daniel.

    "Sell More Books!" is a great resource for authors. It is the type of book you will refer to again and again for new ideas...especially when you feel stuck in your book marketing efforts. I love the appendix, "200+ Ways that Low Profile Authors Can Market their Books" - that lists out tons of creative ideas for authors of all personalities.

    Extremely helpful I have read a number of book marketing resources over the past year. Most of them regurgitate the same advice with no really actionable advice. This one blew me away. I redid my marketing plan because of this book. If you want to sell books, you have to read this.

    I needed to develop a long term marketing strategy for my books and this resource was extremely helpful. Especially helpful were the chapters on getting blurbs from influential people and publications, building an online presence including a press/media page and finding alternative locations to promote one’s books. This is an invaluable resource full of ideas and practical advice.

    Many great tips and examples As someone who wrote and published my own book last year, I'm familiar with many tips. But there are also more tips that I was not aware of before. So I would highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't yet published a book or has already published one.
