My review

4.5 stars

The Newbie’s Guide to Sell More Books With Less Marketing by Chris Syme is Book 3 of the ‘SMART Marketing for Authors’ series.

The title of this non-fiction self-help book is self-explanatory, and a quick peek at the table of contents shows the way the author starts with the basics and builds on each concept to walk one through the thought processes and actions needed to maximize the results of each step. I love the straightforward and simple language that reminds one to work within one’s budget and have realistic expectations. Even better, research studies are liberally cited to back up the sometimes eye-opening premises such as the effectiveness or lack thereof of certain types of social media. There are very nice bonuses, such as the online course that is included, the reference sites that are given, and, above all, the encouragement offered.

There are excellent take-away messages that are clearly laid out, for those at various stages of tech savvy and authorship, and I can’t imagine anyone not finding this to be a valuable resource. I am fascinated to compare the advice given with the interactions I have as a reader and find how nicely it dovetails with my own experiences. Truly, presenting an excellent product then forming a connection with a reader that converts him or her into a loyal follower is great advice, and this book gives a blueprint that will aid one in achieving that goal.
