As a writer, I know you can relate to the fact that writing is a constant pull in your spirit, but book marketing is just as important. When day-to-day responsibilities and unexpected surprises interrupt our intended writing schedules, this can cause us to be frustrated, often leading to procrastination and even quitting.
It’s taken me awhile to come up with a format for The Literary Entrepreneur, but each week on Fridays I would like to share at least 3-5 links that will motivate, excite and give you ideas on how to attract readers to your books. These links will be from a variety of awesome “Literary Entrepreneurs.”

Live videos are not the only videos you can make. Check out the link above.
