Best Selling Authors Need to Be Hands-on Marketers To Triumph
Most authors would rather write than market. Unfortunately, books won't magically fly off the shelves just because you write them. It takes ongoing and systematic marketing and promotion to become commercially successful.

PRLog -- INTERNET — Too many authors feel that once they’ve completed their manuscript and its been published their work is finished. Unfortunately, the real work is only just beginning. Self-published writers are joining the ranks of authors like Stephen King and Mark Twain, also self published. Would we have ever heard of them if they had just sat back after they published the book? No way!
Book marketing needs to be an ongoing process if you want to build a readership. It needs to be systematic and organized. It does not, however, need to be costly, unpleasant or complicated.
Lynnette Phillips, the author of the ‘The Confessions & Secrets of the Avid Book Reviews Blogger’ series of book marketing guides is unveiling her book marketing services to help resolve some of the promotional and marketing questions authors may have.
Long involvement in successful promotion projects has taught Ms. Phillips one basic tenant; the big difference between advertising and marketing is money. There are many realistically priced and even free marketing methods that will help get the ‘buzz’ going for your book and by taking the initiative you might even find book promotion to be enjoyable.
Lynnette is waiting to share her tips, techniques and strategies on subjects like:
• News Releases And Sell Sheets
• Making The Best Use Of Your Marketing Dollars
• Social Media Networking
• What To Include On Your Website Or Blog
• Points To Be Considered For Your Marketing Plan
