This is the second post by children’s author Barbara Ann Mojica and she shares her review for 10 Step Plan to Promote Your Book by Scott Hughes – new ideas for getting our books is always very welcome..
Before I begin this review, readers should be aware that the author is the webmaster for Online Book Club, and he does promote and encourage readers to utilize his business. That certainly does not mean that the book is a shameless promotion of his business. The advice he gives is sound and helpful for the self-published authors. I have used the strategies he presents and can verify they do work. The amount of time to achieve success largely depends on your budget and how much work you are willing to put into writing and marketing.
Steps 1 and 2 are the most difficult. Writers need to produce a really good product to compete in today’s market and they must take the time to proofread, correct typos, spelling and content many, many times. Only after then, can the writer send the book out for professional editing.
The rest of the steps involve becoming involved with all platforms on social media, blogging, reading other authors in your genre, interviewing, starting and participating in book clubs. All these things take time to create and build. Writers need to reach out and develop a network of trusted colleagues and friends. I agree with Hughes that twitter is very effective, and that Facebook has steadily become less reliable for marketing. Of course, the value of social media is largely determined by other factors such as personality and genre.
To sum up, the author has presented a concise program of steps to guide a writer through the competitive world of self-publishing if the reader commits the time, dedication and resources to his project.

One of the recent reviews for the book
The legendary city of Tombstone, Arizona, is the setting for a story where readers can meet well-known pioneers and incredible entrepreneurs with exceedingly strong-minded determination, folks who led hard but interesting lives. This legend of heroes, outlaws, and justice, of history preserved in one story, educational in a very entertaining format, presents children with the opportunity to explore the meaning of the American past. The mix of photos and illustrations will give readers a better understanding of how the American West was built, and what happened during and after our westward development. Throughout the book, children will learn about the legendary landmarks, exemplified and beautifully executed by talented artist Victor Mojica. His brilliant art and the smartly created storyline by Barbara Mojica will bring readers face to face with the incredible characters who make this book memorable and very special. It’s truly an educational gift that will elevate the way children learn. It will draw them into the inspiring story of amazing, courageous people who made a difference in the world. No matter what difficulties they faced on their road, they turned them into challenges and never gave up until they reached their dreams. It is important to have role models in life. And the characters from this book offer just that, with examples which will enlarge the self-esteem and knowledge of readers.
This is the perfect children’s book for learning. The artwork is striking and the text is informative as well as interesting, as usual. Vibrant, simple artwork covers Old Wild West history nicely, and brief but important information not only allows children to expand their horizons but also to increase their ability to absorb new things. It’s pure inspiration to explore, and it ensures engagement on the part of kids! So hop on your horse with Little Miss History and take an educational ride to the Wild West! Another wonderful book by an award-winning team, Barbara and Victor Mojica: “Little Miss History Travels to Tombstone!” It’s fun to read!
