New Edition: 1001 Ways to Market Your Books coming soon
I’m working on a new edition of 1001 Ways to Market Your Books – the 7th edition. I hope to publish it by July 2013. In the meantime, if you’d like to contribute to the book (via advertising and an article), email me at JohnKremer@Bookmarket.com.
I’ll be sending out email letters to contributors of previous editions, but I do expect that there will be other book cover designers, book printers, marketing consultants, Internet specialists, social media experts, publicists, editors, ebook distributors, and others who might want to contribute to the 7th edition. Let me know if you are one of them.
By the way, this new edition will be revolutionary – a completely new edition, not a revised edition, with up-to-date marketing tips and advice for book authors, self-publishers, ebook writers, and book publishers.
John Kremer Audio Program: Q&A about Book Marketing
In December, I offered a series of 5 Q&A teleseminars on how to market books and ebooks. I’m now offering the replays of all five Q&A teleseminars for only $34. That’s almost ten hours of incredible tips and insider information on book marketing, Internet marketing, social media, ebook sales, and creating selling websites and blogs.

Jennifer Miller: 6 Innovative Tips for Marketing Your Novel – http://infographicaday.com/jennifer-miller-6-innovative-tips-for-marketing-your-novel
As you might have known from previous issues of this newsletter, I’ve been creating bookographics (book infographics) for authors. If you’d like a bookographic created for you, I can still do that, but now I have to charge $100 per bookographic. But, until the new year of 2013, I will only be charging $50 per bookographic. Let me know if you want me to create one for you.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you want one for your book.
Note: Some of these bookographics have had 300 to 500 views within the past two weeks – with links to the Amazon sales page for the book as well as the author’s website.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. – Mark Twain, novelist
