DIY Book marketing is about to get way easier for you!
Hello again, everyone! I have two social media for authors workshops coming in September, one in Pickering and one in Brampton.

Book Marketing without B.S. is a weekly publicity and marketing advice column for writers and other creators who prefer a realistic, clear, and no-nonsense approach. My goal is to help you cut through the bullshit with direct, understandable advice you won’t be embarrassed to follow. Send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once I began working independently of a publisher, I ran into an issue that I hadn’t dealt with before: exclusivity with Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) Select program.

Why would they help with a book they can’t sell, after all? Still, I know it is more complicated
