When I first launched this course I called it How to Market Your Book. But what I have realized over time is that authors don't like marketing their books. It is hard, confusing and who knows if it works. I also found that when I am coaching and talking about marketing and what I do to sell my books, it is the selling part of the conversation at people start listening to. It isn't about marketing, it is about selling. Hence time to change the name and the focus.
You have just published your first book? Are you asking “now what?” How do I market and sell it? How do I get people to find it? Is this you? Because marketing and selling is so important to the success of your book I want everyone to have this knowledge. Be sure to download the handouts also.
I am here to help. In this course I teach you everything I have learned about marketing, selling and promoting my own books. I will teach you the concepts and tools to successfully market and sell your book.
I am J. Bruce Jones and I am the author of over 41 books, selling over 4,000 books a year on Amazon.com in 5 of different categories.
What do I get? This course includes:
A big part of my book marketing is building a home on the web where everything can be directed. Your fans can learn more about you, Google can find you, your connections to Amazon and your social media. A great way to do this is build an author/book blog or website. In two videos I show you how to build a book blog.

I had a wonderful message today from author Stacy Taylor who used my How to Market Your Book course to get some pretty cool results with the launch of her new book, Color Your Home Bohemian.
"Bruce! I'm so excited I just had to share with you! I took your online course & look at my Amazon rankings! And on my very first book with less than 10 people on my e-mail list, and a modest social media following, too! I did it! Yay! A huge thank you hug for teaching me how! I'm telling everyone about your awesome instruction! You rock! Have an awesome day, Bruce!
Thanks, Bruce! I watched your course How to Market Your Book. And clearly it works! I have several new author friends & I've been telling them all to check out your courses. You give such great clear instruction, & I was absolutely blown away when I saw how well it worked! I sat there staring at the computer screen when my Amazon rankings came up and thinking, wow, this can't be true,....how could that be possible,...then realizing it actually WAS true, & screaming with joy so loud I'm sure I woke up all the neighbors! Haha! Yes, I would be honored to have you share my results! You may post my results and / or comments anywhere you like. Thanks again, Bruce!
