Here's what the experts say about this book:

"A wealth of ideas for making your book stand out, including many techniques for Internet buzz you won't find elsewhere."

-- Jane Corn, Amazon.com Top Reviewer

"I spent two years building up skills to market my books Earthcore and Ancestor online, and I can tell you right now that Plug Your Book would have saved me MONTHS of time. I bought this book just to make sure I wasn't missing anything, but it blew me away."

-- Scott Sigler, # 1 bestselling author

"An amazingly rich collection of cutting-edge promotional tactics and strategies. Makes most other books about online publicity look sickly."

-- Aaron Shepard, author: Aiming at Amazon

"...The one book every author needs to read. I don't care if you're writing a computer book, a science fiction novel or the next great self-help guide, you need to get copy of Steve Weber's Plug Your Book!"

- Joe Wikert, executive publisher, John Wiley & Sons "Practical, pragmatic, low-cost ideas for promoting the heck out of your own book, whether it's fiction, nonfiction, technical, business or anything else."

-- Dave Taylor, author: 'Growing Your Business with Google'

"I've worked with most of America's largest book publishers, helping many of them build online marketing departments. I've worked for authors too. Plug Your Book is the new training manual."

-- Steve O'Keefe, author: 'Publicity on the Internet'

"...Plug Your Book reveals the most effective and least expensive tools to promote your titles and to increase your exposure. It's the best book on online marketing I have ever read, and I read quite a few in the course of my consulting practice with small presses."

-- Marion Gropen, president, Gropen Associates
