Every book is a labor of love. Fortunately it is not as physically hard a labor as bringing a child into this world. Having given birth to two kids and seven books, I know. Yet, once a book is birthed, it is a part of yourself that you have imparted to the written world.
Your Guide to Marketing Books in the Christian Marketplace has been a labor of love for me. It is the book that I wish I had starting out as a new publisher and author writing books for the Christian marketplace. Since no resource like it existed, I had to learn it all the hard way over several years. Then I decided to share what I had learned with others.
I am delighted to announce that the second edition of Your Guide to Marketing Books in the Christian Marketplace is now available.
This second edition is an updated and expanded version of the award-winning first edition. Since the publishing industry is in constant motion, many changes have occurred since the first edition was published in 2006. In addition to updating the guide, I have expanded the book to include chapters on Gathering Endorsements, Leveraging Social Networking and The Urban Market. An index was also added.
I have found that I was not alone in my quest to have a guide for the Christian marketplace. I have heard from many individuals that this book helped them learn about resources they did not know existed and helped them develop a marketing plan for their books. One publisher wrote, “I now have valuable information I had not seen anywhere else, and I’ve been involved in Christian publishing for over seven years. Every Christian author and publisher needs this book.”
If you are an author or publisher with Christian books and are looking for an overall picture of the Christian market or you just need ideas for how to market your book, then I encourage you to take a look at Your Guide to Marketing Books in the Christian Marketplace.
The Second Edition of Your Guide to Marketing Books in the Christian Marketplace is now available at www.marketingchristianbooks.com. For just $23.99 with free shipping, it’s a steal of a deal.
If you do read the book and find it helpful, I would love to hear from you!
