The Author's Guide to Building an Online Platform

By: Stephanie Chandler

This is a great book for anyone who wants to learn how to promote their book using the internet. The book begins by explaining what a platform is and why having one - several months before your book comes out - is important. It is filled with lots of good advice from maximizing your hits on Amazon to planning a virtual book tour and has a large listing of online resources. Designed to answer questions both for self-published authors and those who have found a home at a publishing house, Stephanie Chandler includes author interviews to show how various techniques have succeeded or failed for others. She also includes templates to follow in creating your media press release and other important documents.
