That’s the header for a new review for How to Self-publish and Market a Book.
Here is the full review:
Hank Quense has done a very thorough job with this book, “How to Self-Publish and Market a Book.” He has made it simple to follow and not overwhelming for the average self-publisher. Don’t know how to start with Twitter? He breaks it down. Don’t know the difference between a packager and publisher? Don’t know what the average costs are? Quense knows that too.
It’s clear from reading this book that Quense knows what he’s talking about from personal experience, and the things he’s figured out along the way. Perfect for the newbie who isn’t looking to reinvent the wheel.
I recently read a self-published book by an acquaintance and am now wondering if she really checked all these boxes. Could she have had better results selling her book if she’d taken the time to put the books in hands of actual beta readers and not friends? Did she try to speed up the timeline? Did she tick all of the marketing boxes? Did she weigh the pros and cons of ebooks and hard copy?
If I ever get around to finishing the manuscript I have, I will be following the steps Quense outlines with a six-month timeline, to ensure the work is worth the effort.
I loved the information about how to get an ISBN, something I’ve never really understood. I also loved how he talked about websites and setting up blog tours to really get the most out of your book launch.
