Video Game Marketing

Indie Game Marketing from the author of the Game Marketing book, The Indie Developer's Guide to Selling Games. Video Game Marketing made simple... or at least as simple as I can make it.

What's in a name?

Ok so I am darn close to being completely done. Cover art sketches are coming in and I will soon select the winner (If I have trouble picking I may post them here with permission from the artists). Expect some decision on that to be made in the next couple weeks.

One problem: I STILL haven't picked a name!

So submit your name suggestions in the comments area... the winner (if you login and post) will get a free copy of the book! Oooh... ahhhh.

Otherwise I will have to go with
"Joseph Lieberman's Guide to Independent Game Marketing" or something lame like that.

Or "Indie Game Marketing..."

Anyway- Give me suggestions, please!
