    1. I am a self published author and for the sake of transparency I am one of the authors mentioned in this book.WAIT don t just assume I have given it a good rating because of this fact I received a review copy and read the book in 3 days and did so because it was very readable and very accessible and summarized in 150 pages the essence of good book promotion.Debbie Young has spent a long time pulling together all the various aspects of book promotion that a self published author needs to look at I [...]


    2. As a new and aspiring author, I realised that I only needed TWO self help books One was Stephen King s remarkable On Writing And the other Well, the other one didn t exist Until now Debbie Young s equally remarkable Sell Your Books picks up where King sadly left off a handbook about promoting and marketing your finished work, aimed mainly at the self published or independent author, but equally valuable for those who ve gone through a traditional publishing route without being one of the big na [...]


    3. As a self published author, with books to sell, this book is aimed at people like me What I especially liked about Sell Your Books is that it is aimed primarily at the UK market That s not to say that authors in other parts of the world won t find lots of useful advice contained in these pages, but having researched this topic extensively, it was refreshing for me to find a book that wasn t primarily targeting US authors I was given an advance review copy of this book but I then went on to buy t [...]


    4. Being a seasoned author who lives in a non English speaking country, I ve gotten to know the ins and outs of selling books online And I can say, without a doubt, that this book offers perfectly sound advice What a brilliant resource to have when you are just starting out I recommend it highly.But this book doesn t only focus on how to sell online, it also talks about real time face to face networking If I lived in an English speaking country, I d be making myself a condensed list based on this b [...]


    5. I would recommend this book to any author wanting to promote their books well It is packed full of invaluable advice that is given in an extremely friendly and down to earth manner It is all so clear and easy to understand I keep it with me most of the time and dip into it whenever I have a question And, I always find an answer It is now my bible and would be a valuable addition to any author s shelf.


    6. There are many books and websites offering to show authors and publishers how to publicise and sell their books I have read five or six, and this is by far the best Intelligent, practical, well written and full of that indispensable ingredient, common sense If you re bewildered by the choice, I can wholeheartedly recommend this book.


    7. This is a very practical and helpful handbook for indie writers, especially if you re daunted by the marketing side of things Where to start What to do Where to put your energies Debbie Young will help you decide on an action plan and get moving


    8. Brilliant advice from a very warm and approachable Debbie Young If you are a writer or are thinking of publishing your own work, then you must read this book It offers in depth, yet very easy to follow guidelines for promoting your work I cannot recommend this enough.


    9. How I wish I d read this book two years ago It would have saved me many hours if not days of research A gentle, but inspiring and stimulating introduction to the publishing market and the highs and lows of launching a book into that new world be it self or traditionally published Young has a knack of explaining things in a way that is completely readable and puts you at great ease While other books for new authors can get quite specific about the ins and outs of algorithms and other peculiaritie [...]


    10. This is a fantastic no nonsense guide for all authors self published or otherwise on how to sell books Written in a wonderfully accessible style and with user friendly checklists throughout it covers the whole sales and marketing spectrum, from how to identify your readers and plan your campaign, to the practicalities of using both online and offline methods to let them know about your book from blogs, mailing lists, and social media, to face to face at local groups events and traditional PR m [...]


    11. Sometimes an author comes across a brilliant book about the writing process Debbie Young s lovely guide to promoting your book is one such find I have dipped into it almost daily after Revenge Ritual was published in August last year It s been so very useful as I work my way through the all the necessary post publishing processes leading up to my book launch and beyond I can t praise this self help manual highly enough It contains all the information that you need to promote your book If you don [...]


    12. First and foremost, if I was bold and brave I would give the book 5 stars because it is a clear and practical guide to getting out there and selling books and if you are bold and brave you HAVE to have it in your library If you re an Indie author determined to make the most of every opportunity if you just knew how to identify them , ditto Because I m not bold and brave it has me at least as terrified as thrilled and challenged, so anyone who tucks themselves away to write, and hopes this book w [...]


    13. I devoured this in a couple of sessions It gives you everything you need to know about self publishing and selling your own books in just 150 pages Debbie knows her stuff As you would expect, it has all the information, detail and advice you will need, with insightful contributions from several successful self published authors Just bear in mind that technology is changing all the time, so by next Christmas we could all be reading books right in front of our eyes on super smart iGlasses Then Deb [...]


    14. As a writer about to self publish my first novel I read Debbie Young s Sell Your Books with great interest and found it to be an informative and invaluable guide for indie authors Written in a friendly and encouraging way, Sell Your Books draws on Young s marketing, PR, journalism and publishing experience to guide the reader through all the ups and downs of selling self published books, both printed and e books.What I loved the most about Sell Your Books was the encouragement it gave me to be a [...]


    15. This book is a great companion for anyone new to self publishing There are countless handy hints and tips and I had than one aha moment whilst reading it I particularly enjoyed the section around marketing and promotion and there was me thinking writing the book was supposed to be the hard part I really enjoyed the interviews with self published authors and would love to see of these in a second edition.


    16. Debbie Young s Sell Your Books does a great job of covering all the most important components of establishing oneself as a self published or indie author The book focuses on the marketing aspects of self publishing and offers sound advice about how to promote a book in the physical and digital domains This book will especially appeal to those who are writing their first book and need to think about how they might generate sales Recommended reading


    17. Very straightforward advice for anyone wanting to sell books Particularly good on targeting something easily overlooked but essential So many authors make the fatal marketing mistake of trying to go after as wide an audience as possible which is as much good as boiling the sea Debbie Young has some great examples of how smart targeting can pay dividends


    18. This is a very useful tool for people wanting good but also realistic information on how to market sell their books It is easy to read and not overly long which appeals to me I enjoyed reading it combined with the fact that I learnt some really useful stuff.


    19. Informative and practical advice for new authors, like myself, wanting to learn about promoting their titles Very readable.
