This is a comprehensive and accessible guide for writers who know they need to market, but don’t know how to get started. (And it has some good reminders for writers who’ve been doing this for a while, too.)

But don’t take my word for it…




“If you’re looking to learn about the reality of marketing your own book, this is the gold standard.”

–Paul Jarvis, bestselling author of five books, including The Good Creative 




“Beth Jusino has created a smart resource for authors who are serious about understanding their marketing responsibilities and who want to take control of building their unique platforms. This is a book that will help authors succeed. I love it. In fact, I’m going to be buying copies for my clients!”

–Chip MacGregor, President, MacGregor Literary Agency 




“Fresh, innovative and insightful, The Author’s Guide to Marketing offers an excellent overview of the promotion strategies available to authors in today’s challenging environment and how they can make a difference to your book promo efforts. If you ever wondered what your author’s marketing plan should look like, this is it!”

–Dora Machado, award-winning author of The Stonewiser series and The Curse Giver 




“Beth provides a refreshingly candid resource. If you want your new book to do more than simply sit on a shelf (real or digital), The Author’s Guide to Marketing should be required reading.”

“This one will stay on my bookshelves (highlighted, sticky-noted and underlined in red pen!)”

–Kellie Coates Gilbert, author of A Woman of Fortune

–Geoffrey Tumlin, author of Stop Talking, Start Communicating 



“Beth Jusino leads by example. She recognizes that many writers, like myself, would rather impale themselves on a dull pencil than attempt marketing their novels. Her instructive approach is conversational, entertaining, and insightful.”

–Christa Allan, author of The Edge of Grace and Test of Faith 


The Author’s Guide to Marketing cuts through the clanging cymbals of today’s one-size-fits-all marketing advice and points the writer toward a strategy crafted around the author’s own strong suits.”

–Rajdeep Paulus, award-winning author of Swimming Through Clouds and Seeing Through Stones 




“Beth Jusino gives authors like me—who are not natural self-promoters—the means and the permission to form a plan that plays only to our strengths. I am now actually looking forward to marketing my book: on my own terms and, more importantly, at my own pace.”

–Christopher Fisher, award-winning author of A History of Stone and Steel 



“If you’re looking for a Sherpa for your marketing journey, Beth Jusino is the one. The Author’s Guide to Marketing is smartly written, witty, and insightful. It’s also honest.”
