Reviewed by Virgil Jose originally for Amazon
If you don't have a big-budget book publisher behind you, your book, no matter what its merits, will get lost among the thousands and thousands published each year. Authors, especially first-time authors, must promote their books themselves.

This book tells them how to do it without going broke. There are many, many ways to get free publicity and the authors have listed all of them.

If you're a first time author and hope to stand any chance of success you need: a) an editor and b) a way to promote your book.

A coach is that person who tells us how to do something that would take a long time to learn on our own. These authors are those coaches for self-publicizing your book.
