I was working with a Miller Mosaic client on Skype for a book marketing brainstorming session. The author mentioned he was the first in his family to publish a book and he knew nothing about the book publishing world.
It has been four years since I threw myself into learning as much as I could about the online marketing world in general and book marketing in specific. I pondered how today I would recommend a new person start to learn about this arena.
I came up with this short list of recommended information sources (note that these are NOT affiliate links):
To subscribe to Carolyn Howard-Johnson’s newsletter (scroll down on right-hand side)
Digital Book Today (new blog posts on home page)
Joel Friedlander’s blog (new blog posts on home page)
Although there are many other online marketers I admire and follow, I wanted to make this a short list so as not to overwhelm people new to these topics.
Advanced info: For those of you who are interested in learning how to convert your own books into ebooks, I recommend the blog series starting with this post.
