Here’s what I received:

Online Marketing for Busy Authors: A Step-by-Step Guide by Fauzia Burke for review from FSB Associates.

If You Want People to Read Your Book, Writing It Is Only the Beginning

There has truly never been a better time to be an author. For the first time, authors have direct access to the public via the Internet and can create a community eagerly awaiting their book. But where do new authors start? How do they sort through the dizzying range of online options? Where should they spend their time online and what should they be doing?
Enter Fauzia Burke, a digital book marketing pioneer and friend of overwhelmed writers everywhere. She takes authors step-by-step through the process of identifying their unique personal brand, defining their audience, clarifying their aspirations and goals, and setting priorities. She offers advice on designing a successful website, building a mailing list of superfans, blogging, creating an engagement strategy for social media, and more. By following Burke’s expert advice, authors can conquer the Internet and still get their next manuscript in on time.

  • Anna (Diary of an Eccentric)

    Ooh that looks like it might prove valuable to us!

  • That looks like it could be helpful for even the non-author. A blogger could get some good tips from there as well.

  • Laurel-Rain Snow

    I would love to peek into that book, Serena. Thanks for sharing.

  • Mary

    Bet it has lots of good ideas for authors!

  • marthae

    This looks like a helpful book. I think many authors need to look at the business and marketing side of being an author…even if they would rather not. Happy Reading!

    Happy Easter! I hope you learn a lot from that book!
