I hope you had a blessed week. If I haven’t told you, I want to say I appreciate your feedback and you taking the time to open this newsletter each week. I’m a teacher at heart and my hope is you find a resource or an article that helps you with your book marketing efforts.
This week’s edition focuses on book promotion contests and giveaways, how to pull together a box set, and the Library Journal’s SELF-e Program.
