Authors will benefit hugely from this practical book by seeing how effective they can be at helping to promote their own books. Alison Baverstock encourages authors to work with publishers and agents but also explains how to 'go it alone' for authors who plan to self publish. The book covers: how marketing works; what opportunities there are; how authors can help; how to get noticed; how to get local publicity, organise a launch event and keep the momentum going after publication. The book also provides authors with a real insight into the publishing process and contains illuminating interviews with everyone concerned: editors, marketing people and, most importantly, authors.

When I first started writing over twenty-five years ago, I took several writing courses from various authors, English teachers, poets, literary agents and people in the publishing industry. The one thing I remember is that they told me that getting published was extremely difficult. They also said that only one in a hundred thousand would succeed. Well, since then I've had well over twenty books published, and that was while I was practicing medicine full time and writing as an avocation. Either I'm really beating the odds - or "they" were wrong!
