Marketing A Book - Ten Ways to Learn How

At Triskele Books, we've spent a lot of time and money on learning how to market our books. And as a collective, we share everything we learn with each other. So today, we're sharing with you. Here are ten of the books, sites, resources and courses that we've found most useful.

Your First 1000 Copies by Tim Grahl
A great place to start, especially if the word marketing brings you out in a rash. Solid, helpful advice and a wise approach to the author-marketing mindset.

Let's Get Visible by David Gaughran
The partner volume to Let's Get Digital (also recommended), Gaughran understands the workings of the Kindle store better than most and offers practical, clear advice on how to use it.

Write. Publish. Repeat by Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant
This is a broader look at building a career from your writing, with a focus on craft as well as marketing.

How To Market a Book by Joanna Penn
Distilling her own experience and advice into one book, which is easy to read and useful for authors at every stage of the publishing process, Joanna is an inspiration.

How To Get Your Self Published Book Into Bookstores by Debbie Young
IN her typically approachable and friendly style, ALLi Publications Manager Debbie Young covers all the angles and some you hadn't even considered.


Mark Dawson's Self Publishing Formula
Mark and his team offer lots of free advice via podcasts and resource books, plus some powerful paid courses that have transformed many writers' careers.

Dave Chesson's Free AMS Ads Course
Very useful 5-day course aimed at digging into the nuts and bolts of Amazon Marketing Services.

Your First 10K Readers by Nick Stephenson
All kinds of helpful advice with a particular focus on growing a mailing list, Nick's blog and videos are an essential part of any author's marketing toolbox.

Anne R Allen's blog with Ruth Harris.
The pair are focused largely on craft, but have some excellent and easily digestible tips on marketing and self promotion.
