I hope you enjoy this week’s Book Marketing Update.
I’m happier than usual. Why? It’s Autumn, my favorite season! I love the cool early mornings and warm afternoons and the colors. Oh my. The orange and red leaves are the best colors in the world, aren’t they?
So get out there, take a walk or a hike, and enjoy the beauty of this season. May it inspire your writing.
Have a great weekend!
