Self-publishing success story
Susan Zimmer, author of I Love Coffee!, sent me this wonderful
Your 1001 Ways to Market Your Books is a ship of great thoughts and
ideas. It's been my Bible to successfully sell 50,000 copies (40,000 in
English and 10,000 in French) of my first self-published book in just over
4 years — taking a risk and following the stimulating tips in YOUR book!
... I took my passion, poured it into a unique coffee giftbook and served
it via 1001 Ways to generate demand and to attract the world's largest giftbook publisher. If I can do it, anyone can — using 1001 Ways.
After self-publishing her first book and selling 50,000 copies, she was
approached by literary agent Albert Zuckerman who landed her a deal
with Andrews McMeel. Her I Love Coffee! now has more than 55,000
copies in print. A third book will be published in 2009.
Watch Susan being interviewed on TV -- especially if you like coffee:
Also, check out Robin Jay's review of Susan's book on Amazon.com:
-- a review that 20 out of 22 people have found useful. Note how Robin
incorporates the title of her book (with an Amazon link) into her review.
Really effective and fair, with a great story to tell.
