Book Marketing Ideas

Here are some hints from “Success, Your Path to a Successful Book.”

1. Frequent bookstores and browse shelves to see what others are writing on your topic and what makes your project unique.

2. Cover design attracting attention, making you grab a book, will cause buyers to pick up your book. Be sure the size of your book and cover will fit on a shelf easily as the spine may be all that shows. Title and author should be clear.
