I hope you enjoy today’s Book Marketing Update.
As we reach the start of a new year (finally!), I’m seeing quite a few posts on productivity. I’ve included two in today’s post.
Be sure to check out a blog post I wrote earlier in the year titled Social Media Tips You Need to Know. There are some great nuggets of information there.

Have a great weekend!
