2015 Book Marketing & PR Toolkit

                   All New !!

Read and Click Your Way To Becoming A Best-Selling Author

Since 1989 I have been in the book publishing industry – serving as a book and acquisitions editor, author, publicist and marketer, helping thousands of authors. In the last three and a half years since I launched BookMarketingBuzzBlog, I posted over 1350 times – the equivalent of at least six books! This past year I averaged a blog post a day, often writing about the things I know and love most: books. I penned posts on book marketing, book publicity, the book industry, book reviews, author interviews, the media, and occasionally random things like Kim Kardashian’s oversized butt – and ego and bank account.

Below is a selection of s22 of the best, most useful, and most insightful blog posts of this past year. They are not necessarily the most-viewed posts, though many are.  I hope you enjoy them and share them with others. If you haven’t signed up to receive the blog, please go to and do so. 

The posts below and throughout the year have sought to thoughtfully and insightfully answer these questions:

·         What resources, best-practices, and strategies are available to help authors succeed?
·         How can you market your book successfully in a competitive marketplace?
·         What tricks and secrets can you utilize to promote your book to the news media?
·         How can you leverage social media to market your author brand and sell more books?
·         Where exactly is the book industry heading?
·         How can we protect print books, preserve bookstores, promote literacy, and help others embrace the value and beauty of books?

Please feel free to follow me on Twitter @theprexpert  -- it will be worth your time.

Lastly, I invite you to contribute to the blog – feel free to contact me at to inquire about providing guest posts, industry expert/author interviews, and book reviews.

  17. Thank you, Brian, for the good information. My question is, How should I write a request for a radio or TV interview? Using 3rd person, as in a press release, doesn't seem right. Your advice, please?

  18. Tour is always exciting and interesting. If it is night tour, it is more enjoyable. Night tour in new york city is really magical . The high line, a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s west side is mind blowing. New york’s night harbor cruise, with awesome views of New york’s unforgettable skyline as well as opportunities to take up-close and personal photos of status of liberty removes the monotonous of life. Anyone can see the beauty of Chinatown, soho and Green village by the luxurious coach. The tour will continue to gran central station and Rockefeller center which is exceptional for you. At last one can enjoy the sight of 50th street of New york city at night, you can’t believe your eyes. So everyone should go on a tour like New-york city in any age.
