Practical advice for authors who are looking to market their books

Talk about your book. Talk about your genre. Talk about your literary world. Talk about writing publishing and marketing. Talk!



Talk to your readers and your potential readers. Talk about your book if they’re interested. Talk about the genre. Talk about writing and publishing. Talk about yourself.
