How To Sell Books By The Truckload On Amazon Power Pack – Book Review
Whether you are a best-selling author or an aspiring author-to-be – whether you have written the next great American novel or the world’s latest inspirational book – with an average of 3500 to 4500 books being published each day in the United States alone – competition is stiff when it comes to the fine art of getting books marketed and sold.
It’s not enough these days to write a great book and to rely on traditional systems of publicity to market your book. You really need to understand the ins and outs of the current publishing landscape and be pro-active in the marketing process.
That’s why you need the How To Sell Books By The Truckload On Amazon Power Pack by Publishing Industry expert Penny C. Sansevieri in your marketing arsenal.
The How To Sell Books By The Truckload On Amazon Power Pack combines updated versions of two of Penny’s previous books:
- How To Sell Books By The Truckload
- How To Get More Reviews On Amazon
In the first part of the book, you’ll learn what publishing looks like today and why Amazon is so crucial to your success as an author. One takeaway from this section comes from Moz:
If you’re an author, you don’t care about ranking in Google, you want to rank on Amazon.
As an author, Penny emphasizes the fact that Amazon isn’t just a store – it’s a search engine – and she teaches you how to use this knowledge to your advantage.
In the second half of the book, Penny focuses on the importance of book reviews – why they’re so important – how to get them – and how to use them to your best advantage.
Here’s a more detailed list of some of the topics Penny covers in her book:
- How to find the best keywords to advertise your book on Amazon
- The importance of Amazon categories
- Strategies for pricing your print and e-books
- How to use Amazon Author Central
- How and when to use free e-book promotions
- Why book reviews are so important for authors
- How to pitch a review request to book reviewers
- Tips for getting review requests from book reviewers
- How to find the top Amazon reviewers
- How to respond to reviews
- How to use Goodreads to promote your book
In addition to invaluable research and time-tested tips, Penny also includes two sets of portable Tip Cards which handily summarize the key points you’ll find in the book.
The How To Sell Books By The Truckload On Amazon Power Pack is an indispensable book that will teach you all of those practical, real-world tips that you need to know about being a best-selling Amazon author that you didn’t learn in English class!
I highly recommend this book to you and rate it 5 out of 5 stars.

And if you sell ebooks, what is the digital equivalent of a truckload? At some point in the future, no one will understand the truckload reference.
Good point Ken! I guess one day this will be a metaphor! 🙂
