Read full description of the books:
This book really lost me when it told me that if I win a Nobel Prize that will increase my sales. It also didn't help that the book told me that if I were reviewed in the New York Times, that would increase sales, too. It also reminded me to spell and punctuate properly, and to carry business cards. It won't shock anyone to learn that I knew all this already.
Another problem I had with the book. The title is misleading. It really ought to specify that it offers 1001 ways to market relatively easy to market books. If, for example, you have written "The Ultimate Guide to Poodle Grooming," you probably already know what the book will tell you – attend conferences attended by those who groom poodles, advertise in poodle grooming magazines, and try to get excerpts of your book published on poodle grooming websites.
For those who write literary books, "1001 Ways" has scant few suggestions.
Also, the book is a bit out of date on some matters, given how rapidly technology changes. Fax machines are not as important as they used to be.
The information in the book was arranged in too haphazard a fashion for me to easily assimilate it, and the book actually promotes itself within the pages of the book, for example, buy more copies of this book and distribute them. I'll pass.
Writers have tough lives. Writers' most frequently received pieces of mail are rejection letters. Writers are desperate to find ways to market their work. I fear that this book makes a false promise to a desperate population.
