I've been busy the past few months putting together a book for authors called The Tao of Book Publicity: A Beginner's Guide to Book Promotion, which I'm happy to announce is now available on Amazon.com.
The Tao of Book Publicity outlines the basics of book promotion and explains how the business of publicizing a book works. Designed for beginning authors but also useful for those with some experience in book publishing, The Tao of Book Publicity provides information on the importance of writing a good book and the need for developing a platform, as well as how-to explanations for developing publicity material, including front and back cover text, press releases, Q&As, media and blog tour queries, and newsletter and media lists.
The Tao of Book Publicity also covers social media, book pricing and sales, book tours and media interviews, and author websites. In addition to explaining how book publicity works, this handbook explores practical topics such as publicity costs, timing, and considerations when hiring a publicist.
Simple, straightforward, and informative, The Tao of Book Publicity includes expert advice on all aspects of book promotion and is a go-to reference guide for beginning and experienced authors alike.

I hope you find The Tao of Book Publicity a useful addition to your writing reference bookshelf, and that you'll take a moment to share any thoughts you might have about it on Goodreads and Amazon.com.
