The All Important Resource

I am constantly reading and learning about marketing. I always try to stay on top of the latest and greatest (a near to impossible task). I came across a book a few months ago through the CARFAC Saskatchewan Newsletter and borrowed it through their library. It is, with out a doubt, the best book on art marketing I have ever read. In fact, five pages into the book, I ordered it.

I'd rather be int he studio, The Artist's No-Excuse Guide to Self Promotion
by Alyson B. Stanfield contains some of the best, easy to read, easy to follow advice. It also contains some great resources, much off of Alyson's own website. I've signed up for her newsletter and through it have found some great stuff. I strongly recommend that you check it out and sign up.

Just a note. I ordered my copy through a bookstore. I wouldn't recommend buying it that way. It took forever! I suggest that you purchase it direct off of Standfield's site. Best $35 I've ever spent!

I am so very grateful for books and libraries. They are too precious for words!

Thanks so much, Susan! I'm thrilled that you found value in the book--enough that you recommend it to others. I'm also glad to hear that you got it first through the library. I love knowing that it's in libraries and I only wish more libraries had it. I'm an avid library-user myself!
