Just wondering if any of you have taken MJ Rose's Buzz Your Book course or have heard anything about it: http://mjroseblog.typepad.com/buzz_b...gn-up-now.html
I'm gearing up to promote my (commercially published with a big house) book, and am not sure I'll be able to afford a traditional publicist to enhance my house's efforts. I'm wondering if this will be a good investment. If it works, it seems like $745 will seem like nothin'. If it doesn't....that's nearly $1000 I could easily use elsewhere. Also, maybe I'm jaded by too many people preying on sensitive author egos, but I find that I'm a bit turned off by the format MJ has used to promote her own course (i.e. I'd rather see what people's results were than their glowing comments).
Also, I'm aware that MJ is a self-publishing-to-commercial-pub superstar, but does that really translate to weight in commercial book promo?
Thoughts, warnings, insights, naysayers, or encouragement, anyone?
Thanks in advance!
