When I was asked to review this book I was quite excited as I love anything that helps authors promote their writing. All too often it can be quite a daunting task trying to get your book out there and noticed. Thankfully this book breaks it all down into bite size chunks in easily understood language which is particularly useful for those overloaded with publishing jargon. I was able to read this book during my lunch break so its perfect for those of us who are uber busy! Its only 29 pages long so it's not meant to be an in-depth guide but more of a beginners guide to get you off the starting blocks and point you in the right direction. A great little resource.
