He is the author of The Author’s Guide book series which includes The Author’s Guide to Email Marketing, The Author’s Guide to Write Text that Sells Books and The Author’s Guide to Marketing Books on Amazon, which will be the focus of our discussion today.

Aside from talking about marketing books on Amazon, Rob will share some juicy info for how you can get access to three free eBooks to help jumpstart your book sales. I don’t know about you, but when I hear the words “free books” I’m all “yes please!”

And stay tuned because toward the end of this interview we’re going to share something extra-special that Rob has cooking just for DIY MFA word nerds.
