A Book Marketing Weekly Roundup for Authors
Welcome to another whopper Book Marketing Update.
Today’s edition includes eight posts on book marketing. Yeah, there was a lot of great advice on the web this past week.
Joanna Penn’s podcast just keeps getting better over time, doesn’t it? Her guest this past week discussed the importance of author networking. This is such an important topic. Romance writers, in particular, are really good at this.
I hope you have the time to take in all of this stellar advice.
