Publishing Books



In this podcast you will learn the elements of the book media kit and how to prepare one with a press release. A sample media kit to guide you in your creation is included with this purchase. This audiobook will explain how to create a book media kit, what programs to use and how to use it to approach book buyers and the media. This is the same process I used to secure media for my publishing company.
