I hope you enjoy this Book Marketing Update.
All of the posts are well written and have awesome tips.
On a personal note, I recently moved. I have spent the last two weeks packing and unpacking boxes.
It’s so difficult to move from a large to a small home with just a fraction of the cabinet space. Oy vey!
Rest assured, I’ve taken more than my share of trips to Goodwill in hopes that our “stuff” will find a good home.
And did I mention that we’re moving with a puppy? My pup is not yet five months and he’s made the packing so interesting! (He loves to chew cardboard boxes.)
However you are spending your time this week, enjoy yourself!
