The Newbie Author's Survival Guide: How to Thrive in the Book Marketing Wilderness

ABOUT Amanda Taylor

Amanda Taylor
I am an author who has been writing since age 16. I published my first book in 2009, but redid it in 2010. I also draw my characters and design my illustrations and covers. I also enjoy the outdoors, beekeeping, science, and animals



After crash landing into self publishing with nothing but the clothes she had on, author AK Taylor fought for survival with trying to market her books on a small budget. After two years of trial and error, reworking, refining, and reaching out, she has created the first survival guide for book marketing compiled of great tools and resources that can be used by any author during the rough times.

Comparing the book marketing wilderness with the real wilderness is how Taylor viewed the publishing world around her. Growing up in the woods and learning survival skills has given her this unique viewpoint for a different kind of world. When she started her search for information, a book marketing survival guide didn’t exist—until now.

I developed this book after my own experience with self publishing and all the tools, resources, and information I had gathered during that time. It was the book marketing survival guide I needed at the time that didn't exist.

This book is helpful to book bloggers as well as new and aspiring authors. ~Quality Reads UK

This is information that all new authors need to know. Period. ~Mark Levine author of The Fine Print of Self Publishing
