Publisher's Summary

Do you want to sell more books and reach more readers? Do you want to discover how to build an author career for the long-term as well as spike your book sales right now?

If you don't know much about marketing, don't worry. We all start with nothing.

I'm Joanna Penn, and back in 2008, I had no book sales, no audience, no website, no social media, no podcast, no email list. No nothing.

Now I'm a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of thrillers and non-fiction. My books have sold over 500,000 copies in 83 countries, and I'm an award-winning creative entrepreneur and international speaker, making a multi-six-figure income with my writing.

Learning how to market my books and my personal brand changed my life. Yes, you need to write an awesome book, but you also need to know how to get it in front of the right readers.

How to Market a Book is for authors who want to sell more books, but it's also for those writers who want to think like an entrepreneur and build a long-term income. It's for traditionally published authors who want to take control of their future, and for self-published authors who want to jump-start a career.

There are short-term tactics for those who want to boost immediate sales, but the focus of the book is more about instilling values and marketing principles that will help your long-term career as a writer.

It's also about going beyond just the book, because these methods can take you from being an author into making money from other products, professional speaking, and creating opportunities that you can't even imagine yet.

    "Excellent summary of how to market your book"

    There's a huge amount of information to take in with this audiobook, and it's an even mix of practical checklists and conversational advice, which helps to digest it better.
    Joanna clearly knows her stuff, and she evidences this throughout.
    The narrator is a great stand-in for the author, as her tone and style is very similar to the author's conversational and friendly style, which helps.
    However, be warned. There is no way you are going to remember everything here in audiobook format. Take it in chunks, as if you are like me, you may get overwhelmed with the sheer volume of information.
    My advice is to use the audiobook version to get an overview whilst on the move, but when it comes to enacting the advice, buy the book where I think the checklist style advise will come into its own.

    "I've read it twice..."

    No kidding. I wouldn't be surprised if I end up doing a third pass either. Simply put, if you want to learn the difference between selling no books because yours is lost and Amazon, and selling lots and building a killer platform, then read this book! (Two or more times!)

    The structure was awesome!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book was nicely action-oriented.


    What does Caroline Holroyd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her narration made the book more exciting!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, though I plan to go through it again, and take action on many of the steps if possible.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was a good length. It was like a complete course.

    "Fabulous"

    As usual, Joanna Penn's books are brilliant. This one was no exception. I got lots of ideas for my own marketing. Lots of big picture mindset.

    I am glad though that I also have this book in digital format because some of the names of people and websites that she listed as resources are ones I'm interested in checking out but as I listen to audio while I'm driving, I can't write down that information.
