John Kremer's
2012 Book Marketing Blast-Off Seminars


Are You Ready to Sell More Books?

Would you like to sell more books — a lot more books? If you do, I can show you how! I wrote the book on the subject: 1001 Ways to Market Your Books. For the past twenty years, I've edited the newsletter on the subject: Book Marketing Update. And, also for the past twenty years, I've consulted with some of the top bestselling authors in the country. Who am I? I'm John Kremer. If you want to sell more books, I can show you how!

  • I designed the strategy that enabled a self-published author to become a New York Times #1 bestselling author of 9 books!
  • I've worked with several other small publishers to set up publicity campaigns and distribution networks that enabled them to sell hundreds of thousands of books!
  • I've ferreted out little-known book markets that enabled publishers to sell 5,000 ... 10,000 ... 20,000 books in a single sale!
  • And I've saved publishers hundreds of dollars, sometimes thousands of dollars by telling them what works and what does not work — and why!

I can help you do the same. In three days, I will teach you all the inside secrets of how other book publishers are selling more books every day!

The 2012 Blast-Off Seminar

You are invited to attend the next Book Marketing Blast-Off Seminar in ... None scheduled right now.

During this seminar, I'll share with you everything I've learned in the twenty years that I've been editing the Book Marketing Update newsletter and hosting No pie-in-the-sky theory. No puffed up New York glitz. No hype. Just the facts. All based on the experience of hundreds of other publishers just like you — proven experience that works!

In addition, I'll help you design a personal action plan for your book or publishing company. I'll outline exactly what to do. Who to contact. When. How. Where. And why. I'll help you discover the sales potential for your books! I'll do this both during the seminar and in a one-on-one session with you — either during the seminar or right after!

“I thought you would want to see what one of your students accomplished recently... We hit #1 spot at on Friday and stayed there for 29 hours (in the top 10 for 55+ hours). We're self-published and did it in 76 days from the time we had the book actually up on Amazon. We did it with no PR, no public speaking, no traveling, and no money spent!!! We also recently sold foreign translation rights in Korea and have 9 other countries after us to do the same (that was before we hit #1)!!” — Jason Oman, co-author, Conversations with Millionaires

This seminar is designed to help authors, self-publishers, and regular publishers sell thousands of more copies of their books. All categories are covered, including novels, business books, children's books, self-help, religion, travel, cookbooks, reference books, and more. All three days of the seminar are relevant to anyone wanting to sell more books.

What People Are Saying . . .

“We are just a bit excited about being nominated for Book of the Year! You know it all started when Denise and Cari took your workshop. Since then we won the Ben Franklin Award for Children's Picture Books. We spent 10 weeks plus on the BookSense bestseller list and for two weeks at Christmas we were #4 putting us ahead of two of the four Harry Potter Books. We have spent 12 weeks on the NY Times bestseller list and have gone as high as #2. We have won the International Reading Association Young Readers Award for fiction. What we are most proud of is that we have raised over $50,000 for wishes for kids and for protecting special places with the Nature Conservancy since the book was released. Thank you setting us off in the right direction.” — Carl R. Sams II, author/publisher, Stranger in the Woods

I have been on national radio talk shows, regional TV interviews, am touring presently for B&N (they ordered 3,200 copies before my actual release date), and am the resident expert on A national bridal chain is about to carry my book...

John Kremer talked seriously over a three-day period about over 2,000 book marketing tips, yet his humor and mesmerizing voice made the time fly by.

When you think about how much you would have to pay a publicist, this seminar is money well spent and the best possible investment for promoting your book. No matter where you stand now, either thinking about writing a book or with a book already out for two years, this seminar will prove invaluable to you. I know it has been for me.” — Py Kim Conant, author of Sex Secrets of an American Geisha: How to Attract, Satisfy, and Keep Your Man

“Staggering. No one tells the author these things — not the publisher, not the writer's rep. Just John Kremer.” — John Robert Marlow, screenwriter and author of Nano

“I was a student in the Toronto Book Marketing Seminar in October 2004. I want to let you know that I took your advice and things are going very well. We've sold over 2,500 books to reading clubs and schools. The Toronto Sun contacted me for an interview and photo session to discuss my "atypical kids book." The article was published in their December 11, 2005 Sunday newspaper. The Black Family Channel (in Atlanta, Georgia) is using 3 poems from my book as public service announcements and I am in talks with a local producer who is interested in using the characters Marcus & Calley for an upcoming cartoon. I've done a couple of radio interviews (one for an Alabama radio station!) and even received a letter from the Premier of Ontario advising that he enjoyed the book and suggested that I contact our Education Minister. All in all, I want to convey my thanks as your seminar was amazing and produced unbelievable results when I took action.” — Claudette McGowan, Web:

“More valuable info per hour than any program I've attended.” — Nate Booth

“Enclosed is some show-and-tell to demonstrate the learning that I internalized from your seminar last winter! First, you will see some significant changes to the Energize resource catalog. ... Initial response to the catalog from our traditional audience has been very positive. ... I certainly feel that we are gaining momentum and thank you for your advice.” — Susan J. Ellis, President, Energize Inc.

“It was a great and diverse group. ... You are more literary and generally classy than others, and I really admire literary, classy people who evidence passion.” — Eldon Braun

“I highly recommend John Kremer's Book Market Blast-Off Seminar. Within two weeks of attending, taking pages of notes and firmly deciding to actively market my book, I was called out of the blue and interviewed by an editor of Money Magazine. Take note, that I had only made a List of 100 Things To Do and done four of them when I received this call. John's seminar made the difference. John knows what he is talking about and will save you tons of money and lots of missteps. Plus he's funny, kind and wise. Go, just go! It will be the best marketing money you spend during the first five years of your publishing career.” — Suzan Hilton, author of The Feng Shui of Abundance

“I've been reading John Kremer books and attending the Kremer seminars ever since I first got into the publishing business about ten years ago. I've especially enjoyed the BMU newsletter because John always comes up with interesting information that I can put into practice right away. His insight into specific ways of approaching specific magazine editors, radio and television producers are really the greatest.” — Stuart Sobel, Pro-Action Publishing

“Thank you for the most generous seminar I've ever attended. Stay healthy. We all need you.” — Karen Okulicz, author

“Fabulous seminar. Great content—the live analog of the book, only better. I enjoyed it tremendously and am still processing all I learned. The price doesn't even begin to match the value received. I'm amazed at how much you know and how generously you share it. Thank you for a wonderful learning experience.” — Helga Hayse of

“I really enjoyed learning from you because you are so genuine, authentic, and totally honest. And you deliver your material in such a simple understandable way. You treat everyone with such fairness and equanimity and establish an environment where it is easy to learn and everyone feels comfortable. It was great the way you keyed into each and everyone's special needs as well.” — Gaylah Balter, Learning Tree Books

“I want to thank you for a truly eye- and ear-opening seminar. It had added value because of my new relationships with others in attendance and because your presentations will help me more readily process your book on 1001 Ways to Market Your Books.” — Ed Weinsberg, author, Conquer Prostate Cancer Fast
