Develop your author platformBook Description:

Transform Your Lifestyle and Your Opportunities 

With so much advice available on how to sell more books, it is essential to know what pieces to have in place first. Once these pieces are in place, you’ll have a solid foundation to build upon. 

In this Quick Guide you’ll discover how to develop the three primary legs of your Author Platform: your blog, your Facebook author fan page, and your author page on Amazon Author Central. Once these three elements are in place, you’ll be able to increase your visibility, reach more readers, and sell more books! 

The Build a Business with Your Book Quick Guide Series is designed to support authors in developing key areas of online book marketing as they develop online training and coaching programs based on the topic of their books. Building a business with your book can transform your lifestyle and bring you a great deal of personal and professional satisfaction as your message moves beyond the pages of your book, into the lives of the people who can benefit from your message. By doing this, you’ll not only earn many times the price of the book, you’ll help your readers to digest the material at a deeper level and support them in taking action on what they’ve learned.

My Thoughts:

D’vorah Lansk lays out a foundation for authors to build their author platform online.  She walks the authors the steps that should be taken to build a presence on Amazon, Facebook, Goodreads, and an author website.  None of these should be skipped to build a fairly comprehensive author platform.  She writes easy to follow and understand steps for the author to take action right away.

I would have liked to have seen more on social media included, such as Twitter but that is a small observation.  Though ‘Develop Your Author Platform is a short book of 54 pages, it packs a punch in terms of usable content to get authors on their way to getting noticed on the internet.


I received a Kindle version of this book for my honest review.
