PR Tools For You

Hi Everyone,
We've been getting a lot of inquiries from authors who would like to know what they can be doing to help promote their book. On this blog, you'll find several tabs which feature great resources for you to help promote. If you haven't looked at it in a while or at all, take a few minutes and browse through the introduction, your marketing web, first steps and recommended resources.

Since the author is the one who knows their book best, see what you can come up with for a marketing plan. I have been extremely impressed with some of the plans that have been presented to me. Give it a try and let's see what great ideas are out there!
