In 'My Way' David has written a valuable resource for indie authors, showing us his marketing strategies. Too often this type of book is full of hype with little information but not this one. Written in the same style as his book "Wrong Time Wrong Place" this is a no nonsense look at the hoops indie authors have to jump through to make their voice heard and get their books in front of the reading public. I've been at this for 18 months now and even I learned a thing or two! Thanks for this little gem of a book, David, I'm off to implement the holes in my marketing strategy!
This is a fast and easy read with no technological jargon. I was very intrigued to read how the author had marketed Wrong Place Wrong Time and have definitely picked up a few tips I'd not considered during my own marketing journey to date. As a result I will certainly be putting some changes and additions in place. Lovely to see the author giving shout-outs to many other authors and literary people he's met online along the way too. This is a very useful guide to self promotion and you can't go wrong for 92p! Recommended.
It was with some trepidation that I approached My Way by David P Perlmutter as, often times this type of `how to' book can leave you feeling more confused and inept than ever. Not so, however, with this one. Perlmutter metaphorically takes you by the hand and leads you through the various sections (twitter, blogging, facebook etc) designed to help you market your book. The premise of the book is that Perlmutter himself is the author of a bestselling book and he is sharing the marketing tools that he used in order to achieve this. The strength of the book lies in the fact that it seems to have been written from the heart. Perlmutter genuinely seems to want to help other writers to achieve the same success and his tone throughout is warm, encouraging and sincere. I came at the book as a technically challenged, marketing disaster and found it incredibly useful. I'm not sure how much success adopting Perlmutter's advice will bring but prior to reading My Way I had done only a fraction of the strategies he has recommended. I like the way the book is set out in sections so someone like me, with not much know how, can easily refer back to specific advice. If you struggle to get your head around social media and all things technical then I don't think you can go wrong with this book.
If you are a budding author, blogger or even a business urge you to read this book about getting your work noticed.
This is written from Dave's perspective of promoting his fantastic debut book which is an account of his life "Wrong place, wrong time" this book tell how you can use various media platforms to promote what ever it is you are trying to promote.
Everything he's telling you to do is actually common sense but one thing is definite all these tips DO WORK!
