Recommended Resources (periodically updated)

I'm currently reading the "Guerrilla Marketing" book for authors - it's excellent. One of the co-authors is Michael Larson, who's written two other books I swear by - one on writing book proposals and one on finding a literary agent (or being one for yourself). All three books have been published by Writer's Market Books, and I recommend all three quite highly.

I've just re-joined Pub-Forum, a discussion list for publishers and those affiliated with publishers. It comes with a recommended reading list that I'd like to endorse here:

They recommend you read a book such as The Self Publishing Manual by Dan Poynter
1001 Ways to market Your Books by John Kremer

"The Publishing Game: Publish a Book in 30 Days" (self publishing)

"The Publishing Game: Find an Agent in 30 Days" (literary agents)

"The Publishing Game: Bestseller in 30 Days" (book promotion)

And to check these last three out at:

They also recommend you visit some of the many excellent publishing websites (such as",,,

As someone who's worked with four publishing companies (I just signed with my 4th), who's promoted or coached dozens of authors, and who's written (and promoted) 9 published non-fiction books, I think all of these sources have real merit.

As I come across other resources, I'll be sure to let you know about them.
