Have you written a book and now realize that marketing it is as hard – or even harder? Marketing professional Penny Sansevieri is dynamic, exciting and informative. She knows that marketing your book in today’s saturated market (800 books are published every day) can leave you frustrated. She will turn your frustration into determination and optimism – and make you laugh all the way.
Penny says that what once worked (traditional press kits and press releases) no longer work. And newspapers, radio and TV are reducing or eliminating the time and space devoted to authors and book reviews. The INTERNET is now the best road to your book’s success. But how? When? (Hint: Long before you think.) Why? Penny will tell you.
