Overview

As published writer, I have learnt how to get reviews, advertise my books, get interviews, present my sales links on social media so they are not just sales spam, and so much more. I have my own podcast, and have made contacts who I can refer authors to for promotional opportunities.

Get in touch and I will provide you with more detailed and specific information on how I will work with you to help market your book and get you the opportunities to promote it to an audience.
