Audentes fortuna juvat.
(Fortune favors the bold.)
– Vergil, Aenis
We do our best to arm our authors with the tools to market, share, and sell their books. One Blurb author recently made his book public and after only a few days it’s a Blurb Bookstore best seller.
Lorenzo is a New York City photographer and blogger who wrote 25 Lessons: The Art of Living. Lorenzo combines his inspirational street wisdom and photography into a pretty cool book about human nature and how to approach life and photography.
How did Lorenzo’s book become a Blurb best seller so quickly? For one thing, he’s absolutely marketing the hell out of this book. Check out his site and his Flickr account to see how he does it. He has book promotion down to a science. Lorenzo is also reaching out to his community of photographers, friends, and colleagues, and even wrote and sent out his own news release.
This is a great example of how you can promote and sell your own Blurb books. Got some book marketing tips of your own? Share them below.
