Title: Get Your Book in the News: How to Write a Press Release That Announces Your Book
Author: Sandra Beckwith
First Reading: Yes
Initial Impression: Sandra has utilized her experience as a publicist to bring DIY self-promotion savvy to both traditional and self-published authors!
Get Your Book In the News offers writers a comprehensive guide on the best practices for creating and distributing an effective press release.
Beckwith starts out by going into detail about what exactly a press release is, how they are used, and which are the most common outlets used to present your press release. From there, she teaches how to craft the message that best represents your book.
As a writer who is still on the fence about whether I want to pursue traditional or self-publishing once my first book is finished, it's great to know that this type of resource is available. Also, let's face it, even traditionally published authors have to do some promotional legwork.
Stay tuned for the Writing Desk Blog's February author interview with Sandra, this Friday (2/23/18)!
