Seek experts' endorsements of your book
One way to generate interest in your book is to obtain an endorsement of it from an expert, especially if writing nonfiction. Such experts in the field that your book addresses can write either a blurbs or forewords/prefaces/intro-ductions. They can speak intelligently about your book’s subject matter and writing style to others interested in the topic, and those in the know usually respect their opinion. You probably know a number of experts in a profession as you’ve met them as researching your book. If not, however, you can find names of potential experts by identifying participants in LinkedIn discussion groups. Such people want to share their views, and you'll know their titles/background/contact information.
Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like Seattle, Washington, or a small town like Uncertain, Texas, I can provide that second eye.
