Publishing & Marketing Realities for the Emerging Author, 2nd
My alter ego, Christine Rose, is about to release the second edition of her Amazon.com bestselling book on authorship and publishing. In it, you will read how O. M. Grey (ahem, me!) was created as a marketing experiment, and how brilliantly that experiment worked (and keeps working). From Christine’s blog:
Coming very soon, like in March, the new, improved, updated Publishing & Marketing Realities for the Emerging Author, Second Edition.
So much has changed in the past two years since I wrote this book, that it’s high time for an update. In the second edition, MAJOR CHANGES to LSI and CreateSpace as viable publishing options. More on Goodreads, changes to Facebook, and how to use Duotrope effectively, building your name and publishing history while you work on your novel. Plus so very much more.
Still, I have some of the first editions left, so I’m offering a SPECIAL DEAL– get your copy of Publishing & Marketing Realities for the Emerging Author, First Edition, and I’ll email you a FREE PDF Supplemental of all the important updates. You will get all the great information of the first book AND the second book, all for just $7.50.

Anyone who buys a copy in the next 30 days will receive a FREE PDF of all the important updates in the second edition. It’s like getting the second book 50% off before it’s available for anyone else! (And author-signed, too!)
Here is what authors have to say about Publishing & Marketing Realities for the Emerging Author:
“This book gives readers a look into an author’s life while simultaneously imparting invaluable advice. It turns reading what could have otherwise been a dry textbook into an exciting learning experience. Needless to say, I highly recommend Publishing & Marketing Realities for the Emerging Author to everyone who wants to be published…The lifetime benefits as a writer that you’ll receive from this book far outweigh the small price you pay for it.” ~Rachel Brooks, Emerging Author (full review)
“Christine’s book offers a thorough, fresh, and honest look at both traditional and self publishing options. Reading it is like sitting down and having coffee with a good friend who’s in the know about the publishing industry.” ~Evelyn Lafont, author of The Vampire Relationship Guide, Volume One.
“Christine Rose’s book is mandatory reading for anyone who is thinking about writing a book, in process or has just completed one. As a successful, published author, Christine shares a treasure trove of information about marketing and publishing in a witty, concise manner. A mind-boggling world awaits. Let Christine’s guidance help you to get your work into the right hands.” ~ Caroline Kirby, emerging author.
“This should be required reading for emerging authors.” ~ TS Tate, freelance editor.
“This is the one that will guide you through the jumble of today’s publishing options. Packed with practical information, the writing is fast-paced and to the point. No fluff, just facts. A must for every writers reference library. This author has experienced it all, and she graciously reviews the entire process enabling you to realize potential and practical options for your book. I bought the Kindle version and stayed up to read it. Couldn’t put this one down.” ~N. Bright via Amazon.com Reviews
“Publishing & Marketing Realities for the Emerging Author by Christine Rose is a wonderful resource and will definitely stay on my electronic keepers shelf. The “Social Networking” and “Amazon, Smashwords, & PubIt!” sections were especially helpful. I highly recommend you read this book first.” ~A. C. Cockerill via Amazon.com Reviews
“I needed publishing answers and found them quickly in Christine’s Publishing and Marketing Realities. She speaks from her own hard learned experience, not relying on observations of others or second hand advice. If you’re serious about success in today’s fast changing publishing lanes, read this book now!” ~John Smith via Amazon.com Reviews
“I really wish this book had been available when I first started writing and querying literary agents, because it would have left me a lot less frustrated. I would have been better prepared for entering the industry thanks to Rose’s step-by-step guide for surviving the overwhelming world of publishing. I also would have started using Facebook, Twitter, and blogging to my advantage a lot sooner. Rose goes into great detail about not only WHY this is so important to start early on, but also HOW to go about setting all of your social networking and blogging posts to automate, cross-update, etc., in an easy to understand guide.
Rose uses examples from her own writing experiences to make her advice come alive. Her book isn’t just facts and figures laid out in a dry, textbook-like fashion. She keeps it straight to the point (without sugar coating some harsh truths), lets her readers get to know her as an author, and leaves you drooling for more of her great advice.
Thanks to Rose, I understand the different kinds of publishing routes, know what I should be doing to prepare for my writing future at each stage of the journey, and have a greater appreciation for all the hard work that goes into making every single book happen. Any writer serious about publishing will read this book ASAP.”
~R. Brooks via Amazon.com Reviews
As an Indie author, I’m always looking for information on how to market my book. Writing books is the easy part…getting them out to the viewing public…HARD! So, whenever I find a book that seems to promise a few golden nuggets of marketing information, I get it. I was not disappointed with this book in any way! Not only does it have some fresh ideas (after awhile, they all start saying the same things…don’t they?) but she leaves some great lists to follow at the end! This book would be a great addition to anyone trying to learn how best to market their book. I’m really glad I picked this one up! ~Doborah Hughes via Amazon.com Reviews
If you’re an emerging author, you can’t afford to pass up this deal! Even Amazon only has two copies left, and they’re not getting any more. I’ve shut down distribution for the first edition in preparation for the second. This is your last chance to get this books at this low price.
Invest in your future today. You and your career are worth the minimal expense.
Invest in yourself.
You heard the lady. What are you waiting for?
