60 Marketing Tips from Self Publishing Authors and Publishers 

Saint Louis, MO – An unmatched collaboration of successful authors and publishers give their marketing tips and advice.  Find out in Real Answers from Real Authors.  This is the reality of Self Publishing.  To be available August 2013.

Author and Publisher, Jennifer Salmassian Khodadi says: ‘I call local schools and speak to librarians or academic directors.  We arrange a day for a book read, and then I leave fliers for purchase orders and sell the books with an autograph.  I donate back to the school 20-30% so that we both win.’

Author and Publisher, Katrinka Moore says: ‘for books of poetry of my own, I set up readings with different poets to celebrate the publication of my book.   That way I get audience members who may not know me and some of them will buy the book.  I keep copies on hand to take to any readings I’m involved in.’

Jill Mettendorf has worked in book publishing and marketing for 7 years.  In this time, she has worked with and talked to thousands of authors.  This knowledge has grown into a vast consulting base for authors.  Before her career in publishing began, Mettendorf studied Visual Communications at the Illinois Institute of Art.  She is currently self-publishing and documenting her step by step process for beginning authors.
