Book marketing and book selling can feel pretty overwhelming. You want to sell more books. Of the hundreds of ways to generate book sales, which ones will be effective—for your title, your market, your budget, and your own personal style?
1,052,803 books were published in the US in 2009—the first year to see more than a million separate titles, almost double from just one year earlier. That's two-thousand, eight hundred, eighty-four new books every single day of the year. Yikes!
The number of books published goes up almost every year. In 2008, it was 560,626. In 2007, it was 411,422. As recently as 2004, it was just 181,189—less than half of the number three years later, and only 20 percent of the number just five years later. In 2002, just two years earlier, only 119,123 books were published. As recently as 1990, the number was only 46,736.
In other words, an author or publisher releasing a book today has to work six times as hard to get noticed as authors and publishers did just a few short years ago in 2004—22 times as hard as an author who published in 1990.
