The Book Marketing Maze: Wrong Turns & How To Avoid Them | Bestseller Labs

See on Scoop.itWriting and reading fiction

A guide to the 22 most common book marketing ‘wrong turns’, and how to avoid them – so you can start selling more books.

Robert Chazz Chute‘s insight:

This article by Jonathan Gunson from Bestseller Labs cuts through some issues and slaps many of us across the face. It’s a good wake-up call.


As writers, many of us are introverted and so busy, we don’t interact with book reviewers enough until we need them. We spend time on social media too aimlessly. We write in too many genres.

Okay, it’s confession time: By "we" I mean me. I do a lot right, but Mr. Gunson’s post irritated the crap and lymph out of me because it hits too close to home on those three points.
