A new book for authors was released last month by the team at TrainingAuthors.com. It is the first in a new series that will be released by site owner, Shelley Hitz, and her business partner, Heather Hart over the next few years.
Internationally bestselling authors, Shelley Hitz and Heather Hart released the first book in their new series for authors in April of 2014. Officially launching the book May 19th and 20th. The book quickly moved up the best-seller charts hitting number one in it's category.
The Book Marketing Survival Guide series is expected to have a total of nine books for authors. Ranging from topics from how to run a book launch, to networking, to offline marketing. Each survival guide also comes with an optional toolkit where authors can access templates, checklists, video tutorials for an additional fee. Hitz and Hart have been helping other authors publish and market their books for a number of years, and say they are excited to make this new series available to the author community.
"A lot of authors are great at writing, but the marketing side of things is unknown to them, so it can be daunting," stated Hart. "Through all of the material we provide, and especially through this new series, we take authors step-by-step through processes to make it understandable and doable. That way they don't just have a great book, but they are equipped to get their books into the hands of readers and survive the book marketing journey."
The first book, "How to Get Honest Reviews" covers seven proven ways authors can increase the number of legitimate reviews written about their books. The writing team has previously been called, "The Writer's Dynamic Duo," and in reference to this newest book, Online Business Strategist, Denise Wakeman, had this to say:
"This might sound like hyperbole, but after reading 'How to Get Honest Reviews,' I couldn't help but thinking it should be called 'The Ultimate Guide to Getting Honest Reviews.' The section on how to develop your own book review program was outstanding. I really liked the step by step approach the authors shared about how they started their own successful book review program, including samples of emails you can model, what resources to use and exactly how to set up your program. They didn't leave anything out. As they say, book reviews are like gold for authors and I believe any new or experienced author will benefit by studying Hart's and Hitz's system."
The second book in the series, "How to Promote Your Book with a Blog Tour," is expected to be released this summer. Authors and other interested parties can get more information about the Book Marketing Survival Guide Series at: http://www.trainingauthors.com/books/#SurvivalGuides
