Welcome to my author’s blog where I discuss and share tips and ideas on marketing and promotional activities for authors.
Why Publishers, Distributors, Agents and BookstoresWill Not Help You Promote Your Book
The main point I make through these articles is publishers, distributors, literary agents and bookstores not only will not, but can not, put the time and effort into marketing and promoting your book.
