Book Marketing and Promotion

Posted by:

I’ve been asked from time to time how to get a book out there and get it going, so I decided to make a post about it instead of telling everyone individually. I have a book marketing eBook on Amazon (for $0.99) and it’s on Smashwords (for free), so you can check it out if you want to learn some extra tips on marketing just to Amazon’s crowd. This is more of a general book marketing and promotion post to ...

The Dying Times gets 3-Star Review on Amazon!

Posted by:

On the Amazon product page, The Dying Times has received its first 3-star review.  On the Amazon rating scale, this is generally considered an average rating, not too good, not too bad.  Good points and bad points that are balanced.  (Update 01/09/2011: I’ve been advised that a 3-star is actually a good review, which makes sense (it’s greater than 51% of the stars you could receive.)

Brian Kittrell, are you insane?  How could you be excited about this?

Well, ...

Another 5-star Review from Midwest Book Review

Posted by:

I would like to thank Midwest Book Review for now completing TWO separate reviews of the book.  This one is a bit shorter, but a good one, nonetheless!

Another Review in for The Dying Times

Posted by:

This review is from Nickie Hopkins, an independent reviewer.  She said,
Unlike Stephen King or even Jack London, “Dying Times” was easier to follow, and yet at the same time, just as interesting. An excellent read.  If this book was a movie, I would be the first one in line to buy my ticket.
– Nickie Hopkins, Reviewer
Thanks, Nickie!  Glad to have positive reviews coming in!

Review from Author at Lighthouse Dreams

Posted by:

Though certainly not the same genre of book, there are plenty of positive things said and a couple of things for me to work on before the final release in November.  Here are the reviewer’s words:
