The Frugal Book Promoter
by Carolyn Howard Johnson has been a must-have book for authors since its 2004 debut as a text for her UCLA Extension Writers' Program class in book marketing. Modern History Press is now publishing the third edition sporting a complete update including a new cover, bibliography, and reference section.
Like the previous editions, the 3rd edition of The Frugal Book Promoter helps give your book the best possible start in life.
It's full of nitty gritty how-tos for getting nearly free publicity. Carolyn shares her professional experience in journalism, PR, and retailing as well as the practical tips she gleaned from her own book campaigns. She tell authors how to do what their publishers can’t or won’t, why authors can often do their own promotion better than a PR professional, and shows them how to work best with their publisher’s publicist or the one they hire on their own.
