Marketing Your Nonfiction Book

with
Judy Baker

Marketing a book is like marketing a product. Replace Coca Cola with your book and see that visibility sells books. You can grow your audience by being relentlessly generous, memorable, discoverable, and branded. Learn how to craft a clear message, get people talking, sharing, and supporting your author brand, and getting blurbs.

Judy Baker would rather walk than drive. She met her husband on a railroad car on July 4, 1976. She and her business partner share the same first name and middle initial. They created Book Marketing Mentor to help authors reach more readers.
