Knowledge Is Power –

In today’s rapidly changing, highly competitive publishing industry authors need all the help they can get.  And to her credit, Barb Drozdowich has done all authors, including us mystery authors, an incredible favor, empowering us with her knowledge, wisdom and experience.

I’ve had the exceptional pleasure of working with Barb directly and I can personally attest to her skill and ability.  When it comes to book blogging, she speaks sooth.

The Working Innards of Book Blogging –

Barb’s informational treatise digs into the guts of book blogging, giving us authors the inside scoop on:

  • Who book bloggers are
  • What book bloggers do
  • How they do it and why
  • Why authors need to work with book bloggers
  • How authors can best work with book bloggers

Lists of tips for authors include:

  • Book Marketing 101
  • Queries
  • Reviews
  • Guest Posts
  • Author Interviews
  • Promotional Giveaways
  • Blurbs
  • Excerpts
  • Blog Tours
  • Promoting on Book Blogs

Joining the Ranks of Rock Stars –

With the publishing of her new book, The Author’s Guide to Working with Book Bloggers, Barb dons a new hat—that of the Rock Stars she describes so eloquently.  More importantly, she has written a seminal work that belongs in every author and aspiring author’s library.  It sits in a prominent place on my book marketing references shelf—now, my primary book blogger reference.

I highly recommend  The Author’s Guide to Working with Book Bloggers – Building Blocks to Author Success Series (Book One) , as well as the her other books in this series, to all authors serious about commercial success.

For a list of book bloggers, here’s a link for a comprehensive book blogger directory.
