You’ve taken the initial steps to begin your book marketing journey. The first rung on your marketing ladder is to create a quality product, in the case of an author, that would be a book. You need to create an engaging story, be part of a critique group, make sure the manuscript gets edited/proofread, and have a knock-out cover.

I finally persuaded Gene to trust me on this one.
For some time now, Gene has been blogging, and starting discussions about the amazing benefits of blogging, for authors who do so seriously. It is impossible to overstate the value of creating a lasting Internet footprint using this fantastic tool.
So, during the month of September,
I purchased The Frugal Book Promoter 1st Edition in 2004 and scoured it for ideas to promote my debut novel. I used it so much that its pages are worn.
