My guest on this episode of Buzz on Book Biz is Thomas Umstattd of Author Media which is based in Austin, Texas. Thomas was a literary agent and book marketer for a big traditional publishing house. He founded Umstattd Media in 2007 which was focused on building websites for authors and small businesses.
In 2009, he launched an award-winning blog called AuthorTechTips.com
and that blog enabled him to launch his company, Author Media in 2011. Author Media provides online training and marketing services for authors who want to learn how best to sell their books. Our conversation ranged over the pros and cons of traditional vs indie or self-publishing, and Thomas has some great insights and tips when it comes to marketing books.
