Book Marketing - ValValue-Added Book Marketing

In a highly competitive book market, with 500,000 to one million books published annually, it is nearly impossible for new authors to sell their books without marketing.
Value-added marketing
is a well-known strategy. The phrase, "Would you like chips with that?" is a good example. Something low cost is added to make the overall purchase look more valuable. 
Book marketing is a different story. If we assume for a moment that reading is a positive activity, even educational, then we can allow ourselves to feel good about marketing. - The question is, "Can value-added marketing work to sell books?"

Rules of writingRules of Writing

The first rule is that rules are guides. They are not laws, and you can’t be jailed if you break them. - I am not keen on rules, but I like to know them. For me and my writing style, awareness of the rule is more important than the rule itself. When I write, I don’t think about rules, spelling or grammar; I just write. 

The best rule to adhere to is: “Write”; everything else will follow.

If you have the book, here is one add-on for the first chapter; Anxiety Prevention From Chaos to Harmony

Artificial Sweeteners HarmArtificial sweetener could harm your gut and the microbes that live there

An artificial sweetener called neotame can cause significant harm to the gut.

It does this harm in two ways:
One, by breaking down the layer of cells that line the intestine.
And two, by causing previously healthy gut bacteria to become diseased, resulting in them invading the gut wall.

A Positive Mindset – Harmony in BrainlandA Positive Mindset – Harmony in Brainland

Change needs a positive mindset enhanced by positive thinking and speaking. The subconscious mind has a problem with negative-based language; it does not understand it.
Check your self-discipline. How strong is it? It is not enough to just read about what to do. Can you muster the self-discipline to do what is suggested and required? You are the observer of your mind, and you have the power to stop negative thoughts by exchanging them with positive ones. (Excerpt from Chaos in Brainland)

Bondi 1974Going back 50 years to the tumultuous time of the Seventies

Marginalized groups fought for equality, rebellious youth protested the Vietnam War, the Watergate scandal shook faith in the American government, and the digital revolution began. - The massacre at the Munich Olympics and the Iran hostage crisis. - The oil crisis, soaring inflation, geopolitical uncertainty, and cultural change. - In Germany the Red Army Faction (RAF) around Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof wants to destabilize the government with attacks and kidnappings.

Change was in the air: from Hamburg to Bondi
