Summary:

If You Want People to Read Your Book,
Writing It Is Only the Beginning

There has truly never been a better time to be an author. For the first time, authors have direct access to the public via the Internet—and can create a community eagerly awaiting their book. But where do new authors start? How do they sort through the dizzying range of online options? Where should they spend their time online and what should they be doing?

Enter Fauzia Burke, a digital book marketing pioneer and friend of overwhelmed writers everywhere. She takes authors step-by-step through the process of identifying their unique personal brand, defining their audience, clarifying their aspirations and goals, and setting priorities. She offers advice on designing a successful website, building a mailing list of superfans, blogging, creating an engagement strategy for social media, and more. By following Burke's expert advice, authors can conquer the Internet and still get their next manuscript in on time.

    I honored to be the first one to review this, as I'm truly surprised no one else has yet! I am a first-time, self-published author that really needed the wisdom and guidance that Fauzia provides in this book in order to learn more about effective marketing in 2016. I have two jobs and a marriage to balance, so even finding the time to read is difficult, but I took a chance with this audiobook (although, not really because I did some research and found that this book had multiple 5-star reviews from other websites) and I was thrilled with how much content was squeezed into under 3 hours. It's an audiobook that you'll need to listen to again and again in order to gain the most from it, similar to The 7 Habbits of Highly Effective People, another book that I strongly recommend to writers in need of more organization and planning skill development. Fauzia even has interactive worksheets on her website that you can use to further your progress, so you're really getting a program out of this and not just a book. I'm excited to apply what I've learned so far and I hope that other authors will be able to benefit from the wisdom and knowledge shared within it. It's really good stuff!
