Makingamark's Top Ten Art Books in October

Here's my regular monthly update of Makingamark's Top 10 Fine Art Books which has been revised to include the best selling and top rated art books in October.

Just click a link and go straight to the category of your choice and find out which I think are the top 10 art books in October!
Remember these change every month - and what you see this month won't necessarily be there next month.

Movement in titles has slowed down this last month, with the majority of the listings staying the same or reverting to previous top books.

However new books in the listings this month include
Tip for aspiring authors

For artists who are aspiring authors, having repeatedly reviewed the listings and seen the changes over time, I can tell you that achieving a lot of documented high ratings makes a HUGE difference to
  • how well it ranks 
  • the way your book displays in Amazon
  • how many it sells
  • how much money you make at the end of the day!
Although interestingly the best ranked books are not always the best selling books.

However the way you market your book via teaching workshops and via your blog is vital to pre-publication purchases, initial sales and overall sales.  By marketing, I don't mean direct sales pitches to your readers.  I mean building a relationship with readers through good quality content which means that they want to read your blog or take another of your workshops - and hence also want to read your book. Plus recommend it to all their friends!
