What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Bookbub has been the most successful marketing tool. It can be hard to get accepted, and your book has to be on sale during the promotion, but it is well worth the money and the effort.
Describe your desk
My desk was pushed up against the wall in the middle of the living room, but we just moved and I was able to create my own space. Now I have my own office and sitting room. I love it. My desk is a beautiful dark cherry L-shaped desk with a hutch. Everything is still neat, clean and organized. A great space to write!
