Gordon Burgett used to do everything himself. He did the writing, content editing, copyediting, typesetting, proofreading, order taking, invoicing, shipping and even sweeping. Today, he employs professional editors, proofreaders, typesetters, cover artists and office staff. Some are subcontracted and some are full-time. Gordon gets help, not because he is lazy but because these experts and professionals help him produce a better book.

MARKETING TIP OF THE DAY

Never send out a copy of your book unless you intend to follow-up via telephone, REPEATEDLY! It's not worth your investment to send off a book and keep your fingers crossed. Instead, let your fingers do the walking by calling each media contact 10 days after you send a book and media kit. Then pleasantly (but persistently) call every 10 days until you get an answer!
