Description (from Goodreads):

Getting help to promote your book just got easier. Public Relations for Authors Take Hold of Your Own Promotions will help you locate that special publicist who will help you promote your book the right way. As a Publicity Director for two publishers Babs brings knowledge to the book.

Public Relations teaches you why you need a publicist and how to find the right one for you. To understand what you need she covers:

How publicity can help sell books
What you need to know about publicity
Writing Pitches

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

I thought that this book was going to be a resource for authors who want to publicize their book on their own. It actually explains what to expect from a publicist and what the author can do to help the publicist promote their book. 

This is a great resource for any author who is using, or is planning to hire, a publicist.
