When Free Isn’t Really Free – Guest Post by, Jaq D Hawkins…

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

One of my pet peeves in marketing is when someone offers something for free, but it isn’t really free.

I closed the window and moved on.

In the realm of book sales, giving away free books has been a legitimate tactic since the indie publishing culture started.

Your 2019 Book Marketing Plan, Month by Month – by Amy Collins…

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

on Bookworks:

“Fail to plan? Then plan to fail.”  What a HORRIBLE quote, but SO apt for authors who are trying to figure out their marketing strategies. 

Now is the perfect time to sit down and create a 2019 marketing plan.
