Book Publicity Tips From An Industry Veteran

What are the basics of book publicity? What do you do on a day-to-day basis? Generally, I tell my clients I prefer to start working on a book five months before publication.

Making The Most Of Print On Demand, Part 2: All You Need To Know...

The longer your book is available for pre-order, the more time you have to send readers to Amazon and the other stores to accumulate orders. All these orders count as sales on your release date, giving you a good chance at cracking some top-100 best seller sub genre lists in sites like Barnes & Noble and Powell’s. Note: this is not the case with Amazon’s best selling list. They count pre-sales orders on the day it’s actually ordered, not all combined on the eventual release date.
