John Kremer's Personal Filing Cabinet for Book Publishing, Self-Publishing, Selling Books Online,
Book Promotion, Print-on-Demand, Book Publicity,
and Marketing Bestselling Books

Have you ever asked yourself: “How do I go about promoting my book?” Book authors, self-publishers, and POD authors often have to search multiple search engines for terms like “promote your book”, “promoting books”, “marketing books”, “self-publishing”, “promote my books”, “printing books”, “book promotion”, “print-on-demand publishers”, “e-book publishing”, “book marketing”, “book publishing”, etc. And still they will not find any web resource that has as many listings and such detailed self-publishing, book publishing, and book writing information as you will find in my personal filing cabinet. I now share that file cabinet with you so you can promote your book the way you want to.

Below are the pages on this website where I store the names, addresses, phones, faxes, websites, etc. of key ebook/book marketing, book publishing, book promotion, and self-publishing resources and contacts in producing, printing, publicizing, promoting, and distributing books, ebooks, print-on-demand books, and more. These are my personal Rolodex® files. They are now yours as well. Enjoy. — John Kremer, author, 1001 Ways to Market Your Books
