From the Author:

With the intention of starting a "buzz" in the industry as well as securing some advance quotes we sent bound manuscripts of Jump Start Your Book Sales (WDB/F&W) to 67 carefully selected people. Blurbs came back from 41! This may be a record in itself.

The early rave reviews came from Judith Appelbaum (How to Get Happily Published) to Dan Poynter (author of The Self-Publishing Manual), from Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D. (whose Women Who Run With the Wolves was on the NYT bestseller list for almost 3 years) to Letty Cottin Pogrebin (president of The Author's Guild of America). And also from Dave Chilton (who holds the record for authoring/publishing Canada's #1 bestseller: The Wealthy Barber) to Mary Westheimer (president of the Web's largest publisher community).

Publishing gurus Marilyn and Tom Ross authors of the classic best-seller The Complete Guide to Self-Publishing (over 60,000 copies sold) have helped thousands of authors, self- publishers, and independent presses sell millions of books.

In 1996 they launched SPAN, a nonprofit trade association. The Small Publishers Association of North America has become the second largest such organization in the world. Over the last two decades, the Rosses have been noted and quoted in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Denver Post, The Wall Street Journal, U.S. News & World Report, on hundreds of radio stations, and dozens of TV shows, including C-SPAN2's "Business of Books." Now you can learn their secrets of success.
