Marketing. It’s the bane of most writers’ existence. But it’s also a necessary task if you want to succeed as a nonfiction author. I get it, though. You want to write, not sell. You don’t want to feel like the stereotypical used car salesperson. Nor do you want to be perceived as someone who has set up shop (created a website and social media accounts) to constantly push your product (your book) on anyone who ventures onto your physical or virtual lot.

In fact, you don’t have to feel or be seen that way. You can market your nonfiction book (and yourself) before and after publication in ways that feel good to you, that are compelling, educational and valuable for your potential readers, and that accomplish the task in ways you find acceptable if not enjoyable.

If you don’t know how to accomplish this task, no worries. Today, Penny Sansevieri offers a ton of great advice, tips, and insight into how to market books in a variety of ways. One or more of them will feel good and right for you. And she provides the best promotion strategies available in 2015.

Penny photo (current)Penny, CEO and founder of Author Marketing Experts, Inc., is a best-selling author and internationally recognized book marketing and media relations expert.
