Author Tim Grahl knows what he’s talking about when it comes to book marketing. For more than a decade, he’s helped hundreds of authors market their books, many of which have become bestsellers. What Tim does that countless other authors of the dozens of book marketing books I’ve read don’t do is simplify the process. He shows new and seasoned authors a clear marketing path to success. In this recently revised second edition, Tim uses the example of two authors, a compilation of those he’s worked with. One is a first-timer, the other more seasoned and we follow along on their marketing journeys.

As a book coach, copyeditor, ghostwriter and potential bestselling author, I’ve bought and read dozens of books about how to write, publish, and market books. Writing is my strong suit, marketing not so much. Some of these books are published merely to promote the author’s other books or products, and some don’t really have all that much content. Michelle Kulp clarifies that her book teaches WHAT to do, not HOW to do it. So that set me up for knowing what I was getting.

She’s someone readers can feel confident they could learn from and…
