Book Review: Get Known Before the Book Deal by Christina Katz

Christina KatzChristina Katz has packed A LOT into this book. Any aspiring author, almost author, or new author will benefit from her insights on how to create and grow a writing platform.

I was especially impressed with part one, in which she discusses how to discover your platform and what your first steps should be to make it unique and natural to you. Every writer should read at least this section if they’re serious about having a career in publishing.

I was also amazed at the range of topics she covers: email signatures, taglines, mission statements, head shots, blogging pros and cons, blogging ideas, audience identification and selection, web-site design, style, etc. etc. This breadth of topics makes this paperback a strong reference resource. I’ll be referring to it time and again, I’m sure.

Highly recommended for wannabe and newbie authors.

      No problem, Christina. I’ve recommended your book many times to authors and new writers. I’ve also been able to speak a few times on marketing to writer’s groups or at conferences and this book has become on of my staple recommendations along with “Zen in the Art of Writing” by Bradbury and King’s “On Writing.”
