Not sure why author Rob Eagar chose this metaphor, but he refers to fire a lot in this book. The full title. though, tells the real story: Sell Your Book Like Wildfire: The Writer’s Guide to Marketing and Publicity.
It is true that buzz — word-of-mouth, — viral exposure is exactly what you need to get your book noticed. And his book will give you the spark to start that fire. Here are excerpts from a full review I did at BlogCritics Magazine.

Concepts covered include:
