Don McCauley of the Free Publicity Focus Group and Danielle Hampson of eBroadcastMedia.com, founders of Book Marketing, announced today a new book marketing training class entitled 'Book Marketing - The Truth'. The effort is to present the truth about marketing books in today's fast changing marketplace. Book marketing and promotion methods must adapt to that changing marketplace. There is no charge to join and no charge for the training module. Training is provided in video format.
Book Marketing, branded as 'The Authors Marketing Powerhouse', allows authors and publishers the opportunity to upload photos, bios, book covers, video and book trailers. The site also offers discussion forums, segmented special interest groups and allows for event listings. Each author can develop a personalized page. In addition the site allows for integration with Facebook and Twitter. The site is a joint collaboration, developed by Don McCauley of the Free Publicity Focus Group and Danielle Hampson, CEO of eBroadcastMedia.com.
"Offering marketing training to the members of the site," stated Mr. McCauley, "was a logical step. There is no charge of any kind for members. We believe this site offers a real opportunity for authors and publishers, as the site offers so many options, opportunities and possibilities. It can be treated as a place to create awareness of one's work while, at the same time, the site allows the author to network with like-minded individuals. The segmented groups allow for the exchange of book marketing ideas, while the discussion forums can serve as an educational resource for those who may have a need to increase their own knowledge in regards to creating marketing and publicity plans that produce real results. All of this can be integrated with social networking technologies. The site can serve as a centralized hub for book marketing activity, education and networking."

"Our goal with this site," said Ms. Hampson, "is to create a one stop resource that covers all the bases in regards to creating success for authors in an Internet marketing environment. The collaboration between us allows authors to take advantage of getting the word out through Book Marketing, while participating in networking resources, group discussions, publisher information listings, full service audio and video production, publicity and marketing resources and much more, all found at one centralized location.
