Review: Book Marketing Success Bundle


I have been a huge fan and follower of Heather Hart and Shelley Hitz's blogs and books for a while now. Their warm and friendly approach draws you in and because they've been 'in the trenches' they anticipate every question that you have... even those you might have been afraid to ask! In my opinion, this is the best deal going for indie authors. The bundle takes you from concept to sales and the case studies give realistic examples that these authors have actually implemented, including their measured outcomes (good, bad, sometimes awesome and occasionally ugly). For those of us more visual learners, there are links to screen shots that take you step by step through certain, more technical processes. Even though my background is in PR and marketing, I came away with a long list of ideas to weave into my book marketing plans. Things change so often and rapidly in the industry today that you never really stop learning! In the first book, they include practical tasks to do (if you so choose) with each chapter before moving on. The bonuses that are included throughout all the books are countless, starting with an amazing list of 200+ ways to market your book. One of my missions this year is to blog more often so I have already taken on board several of the blogging prompts recommended. The books are also peppered with loads of questions to spur you into action. I highly recommend this bundle of 'joy'. 

The bundle includes:
Book Marketing for Beginners
Marketing Your Book on Amazon
How to Publish and Market Audiobooks
Book Marketing Case Studies
Author Publicity Pack

They just did a very information packed Question and Answer session on Google Hangouts recently as well and it's well worth the time spent! 

Happy writing and publishing!

Please note that I received a free copy of this collection in exchange for an honest review. However, even though I received the bundle in order to do a review, I had already actually purchased 4 out of the 5 books previously! As I said, I've been following these gals for a while now :)

I'm adding the bundle to my wishlist. I remember when I interviewed you, one of your responses was to do one thing a day to market your book. That really stuck with me.
Hi Jeri,
I always try to keep to my one-a-day mission and often push it to two or three! This bundle is full of great stuff so I hope you find it useful :)

Holiday Launch Planned for Late Author's Second Children's Book

 We are saddened by the recent passing of the very vivacious, funny, gorgeous, and talented author, Jackie Arnason. Last year, at the age of 87, we published her first Children's book, Hambone-Why Pigs Have Curly Tails . After a brief illness, Jackie passed away in September of this year, while we were well-underway in the publishing process for her second book, Timothy Titus Terrance O'Toole and the Dragon. With the support of her family, we pressed on and will launch her book in December.  Jackie Arnason A beloved story-teller to all those who knew and loved her, with the publishing of her first book, and now her second, a lifelong dream has been fulfilled. Her legacy will live on in the lessons and magical stories she shared through the years. A prairie girl, born in a small town in Saskatchewan, Jackie's childhood years in the 'Dirty Thirties' were hard but the local library became her haven where she escaped into worlds she could only dream of growing up in Reg
