This book is packed full of good advice for new authors. It covers not only what might be a scam or waste of money, but also some good places to put your marketing dollars. There are a lot of good examples and ideas but don't expect a list of websites, etc. I don't like those anyway as they are often out-of-date.
There are a lot of good strategies here and suggestions on how to adapt them further. Marketing is hard work whether you're a new author or experienced, but this book will help you further down this path. ( )
