When Rob isn't consulting, you'll find him fly-fishing, flying down a rocky trail on his mountain bike, or loudly playing his drums. However, his wife, Ashley, prefers that he join her to quietly paint, work in their garden, or watch Jane Austen movies. They reside in Atlanta, Georgia.

My Take: As someone who teaches on platform and publicity, I wasn't sure I'd get much out of this book that I hadn't heard before. Boy was I wrong. Every author wants to sell more books but most have no clue about how to go about it, or simply regurgitate the same old, tired, overdone methods everyone else is using and getting minimal results. Sell Your BookLike Wildfire is simply put--one of the best books on book marketing around. I can't recommend it enough. A must have for every writer serious about getting their books into the hands of readers.
