Marketing Matters by Wendy H. Jones
I enjoy the fiction books Wendy H. Jones has written. Her crime novels are amongst my favourite books and my granddaughter loves her children’s character Bertie the Buffalo, so I was amazed when this busy, talented author had time to produce a non-fiction book, Marketing Matters, designed to help other authors sell more books.

Marketing Matters is a brilliant, helpful book and so easy to read. it is designed with sound advice and exercises at the end of each chapter. It is well worth taking the time to do the exercises as the author touches on so many points and gives helpful examples.
Marketing is a minefield and the author shares her experience using different sites and methods of marketing. The book gives the reader a great insight what to expect. The writing is clear so that all levels of writers, even those new to writing can understand it and find helpful hints. I bought the paperback and find it easy to refer to and find relevant chapters. I unreservedly recommend Marketing Matters to authors. I am sure that they will all find it helpful.
