52 Ways to Sell More Books

Appetizer **** of ******
Writing a book is like giving birth to a child. It takes a long time, enormous effort, pain, sensitivity and commitment but it's really only a first step. Next comes the hard part and you're in it for the long haul. Raising a child takes 20 years but fortunately marketing and selling a book won't take nearly as long, especially if you read Penny Sansevieri's book, 52 Ways to Sell More Books. I think that this lady is a dynamo and that the hints, tips and direction she gives would help you sell ice to Eskimos. Sansevieri is well versed in traditional ways to market a book but she also teaches you how to promote it in so many innovative ways, from face to face, one on one, blogging, social media, using traditional media and making your book stand out from its competition (which she also tells you how to identify). Want to sell your book? Of course you do - you didn't write it to sit on your own bookshelf and give away to dinner guests. Follow Sansevieri's advice and you will sell your books!
