We’re not talking commonplace, no-duh advice like “build your Twitter following” or “write a professional press release”, but straight talk like:
  • Start building your platform at least a year before your book comes out
  • Press releases are a waste of time; publicists are a waste of money
  • Half of your marketing opportunities come because someone finds you by accident
  • Forget the New York Times; focus on your local paper
