With this book, you’ll develop a strategy that will get articles about your self-published book in newspapers, magazines, on radio and television programs, posted on blogs and linked to on websites, while landing you book signings and readings, all at virtually no cost.
Simply set aside seven minutes a day – between classes, in the morning before your family gets up, or during lunch at work. In that time, take a minute or two to read one “step.” Then for another five minutes write as instructed in the You Do It section that follows.
Each task you complete in the You Do It sections builds upon the previous one, allowing you to quickly self-publish your book.
This book has repeatedly topped Amazon.com’s bestseller lists for writing guidebooks.
