The Four Feathers by A.E.W. Mason
The Four Feathers by A.E.W. Mason
5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book, July 25 2003
This is a period piece, and a romantic book in every sense of the word. The "God and Country," "loyalty above all else" and strong sense of honor in the book might offend contemporary readers, but stay with it for the story of sin and redemption, loss and restoration. It's a sweeping story told in a sweeping style. It's no wonder Hollywood has made so many movie adaptations (my favorite adaptation, by the way, was the one starring Jane Seymour)!
The Complete Guide to Self-Publishing by Tom Ross
5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Gold Mine!, July 24 2003
I read this book 4 or 5 times in the library, then ordered my own copy. It's an outstanding reference if you are self-publishing your writing, but it's extremely valuable even if you aren't (my own novel was published by a royalty-paying publisher)--especially if your publisher is a small press with little or no promotional budget (like mine). Everything you could possibly need to know is covered, and covered very well in this volume: how to create press releases and media kits; how to get book reviews; how to book media appearances; how to do book signings; how to promote before and after publication; how to keep interest up in your book. It's a genuine gold mine!

1001 Ways to Market Your Books by John Kremer
This book, along with The Complete Guide to Self-Publishing by Tom and Marilyn Ross, should be in every author's library (I have them on the corner of my desk) and need to be referred to often. If an author will do what Kremer suggests (do something everyday to promote their book), they will sell books. And Kremer has enough suggestions in this volume to keep an author busy for years.
