Help with book promotion

Tell Me a Story - opinion.

This is one for all you published authors out there who aren't actually best sellers.

If, like the rest of us poor mortals, you're struggling to get your book read, then you need assistance. Publishers don't seem to give a damn once your book is in print; promotion is for celebrities not for real writers. Real writers have to do their own promotion - uggggh! I hate it.

Help is at hand though, you'll be glad to hear.

Carolyn Howard Johnson has produced a neat book that gently guides through you the maze of book promotion - and without spending a fortune.

Using her own experience, Carolyn shows you insider wrinkles that most publishers or publicity agents simply won't. The Frugal Book Promoter is invaluable. I purchased it a while ago - loved it. It's full of good stuff - one of those books you refer to time and again.

You must have read "Pass It Forward!" What a nice thing to do, especially unasked and without expectation of reward. Thank you. I hope you'll contact me at hojonews @ I have a little thank you for you.
