In the great tradition of sequels, this book picks up where Amazon’s Number One “Hot New Release” in Business Humor, How I Wrote 2 e-Books in 21 Days, left off. With any luck, this book will remind you that sequels can be brilliant, as with Toy Story 2 or Terminator 2.
Then again, it might just suck as bad as Caddyshack 2, Blues Brothers 2000 or Weekend at Bernies II (yes, they really made this bonehead movie – you can’t make this crap up).
We learned in the first book that it doesn’t require a rocketary scientifical degree to get an e-book published. Any schmoe can do it, as Glen Stanford proved when he published two e-books in 21 days.
Now that you’ve learned the secrets of getting your book out to the e-world, it’s time to market it so people will throw money and accolades at your feet. This book tells you how.
Of course, in the grand tradition of Mr. Stanford’s storytelling, you can’t just get this simple information in a straightforward scholarly manner. Oh Nooooo, you have to take side trips down Weird Street and listen to all sorts of ludicrous stories that may or may not have a damn thing to do with marketing your e-book.
But they do have to do with marketing his e-book, and since he’s a best-selling author you had better pay attention. Or not. Who could blame you? Never trust a description written by the author in the third person (we don’t).
Just as in How I Wrote 2 e-Books in 21 Days, there are golden nuggets hidden in Gorilla (sometimes deeply hidden). For example, you’ll learn how to get both the paperback and audiobook versions of your books produced for free. Better yet, you’ll learn where to focus your marketing efforts to get a monster boom for minor bucks.
Guerilla marketing is the technique of using low-cost unconventional means to sell something. So why call it Gorilla marketing? Can’t this guy spell either?
There may not be such a thing as a free lunch, but you can get a pretty tasty meal digging through the dumpster behind the Ritz.
OK, maybe not. That’s just gross. But you can have a Dom Perignon marketing plan on a Budweiser budget if you get a little creative. And if you’re looking for creative, you’ve come to the right place. Just watch your step – there is a lot of poop to step around on Weird Street.
Oh yeah, there is a money back guarantee if you don’t get an actual LOL. And that’s in addition to the fart joke. Probably in the ROTFLMAO day. Or maybe on PITA day. But definitely on the seXY spaghetti lesson day. If you don’t laugh at this stuff, you’ll need the money for your shrink, and the price of a cup of coffee shouldn’t stand between you and proper mental health.
