GrahlI’ve been hearing a lot about the book, Your First 1000 Copies, The Step-by-Step Guide to Marketing Your Book, by Tim Grahl. It’s getting some wildly positive reviews, and might be helpful for new authors — but be sure to read the “critical” reviews before you make a buying decision, because it sounds to me like more enthusiasm than substance. If you need to be convinced that it’s important to build your mailing list (it is!), you might want to read this book; if not, it’s probably one you can skip.
