The Book Marketing Network

For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers

I am currently reading Brent Sampson's "Sell Your Book on Amazon" based on hearing about it on this network. I am learning a lot. And it made me wonder:

What 5 books would you recommend to someone who is writing and self-publishing a book?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the tips Amy!
Sorry that they were redundant. But I suppose that gives you information, as well.

I should add John Kremer's 1001 Ways as well. Also redundant, but just as integral to the publishing process.
try Guerrila Publicity and Guerrilla Marketing for Writers
and all of the AUTHOR 101 BOOKs
Thanks Rick!
One that has not been mentioned is:
Tested Advertising Methods by John Caples

Also Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

Thank you for your question.

Dan Poynter's book is outstanding.

As a real newbie in all of this process, I highly recommend 2 books that are threadbare and I could use new copies. *grin*

The Self Publishing Manual by Dan Poynter and 1001 Ways to Market Your Books by John Kremer. They helped me soooo much and gave me the courage to start my own publishing company and to be what I consider to be successful in what I have already done. I know I will be successful in the future as well because of the base these two books set for me.
Is anyone really selling tens of thousands of books a year or are we just buying and reading promotion books? I read some of these books and they go on and on about sending free comps to reviewers. Come on -- there has to be a better way.

Has any one mastered automated selling on Amazon?
