How publicity can help sell books
What you need to know about publicity
Writing Pitches
Media Kits
Press Releases
Where to find a PR agent

My Review:
This is a short and to the point guide many authors out there can learn a lot from. It gives a sense of what to expect and a boost of confidence from reading it. Knowing a better idea of what should and should not be done when doing PR. I've learned a couple of things that have never even crossed my mind. Especially prep wise.

There are even a few examples within Public Relations for Authors that are in easy to understand and read formats. I feel those examples provided help ease the stress, tension and pressure that builds as you think about actually doing the PR.
There's a little bit of everything to help an author with the PR aspect of the business and all in this small package. I recommend any authors out there that want, need or are even just curious about PR read this book. You have nothing to lose and lots to gain ;)
