Follow-up to #Authors #Marketing Yourself and your Work article…

If you read all (or parts) of Susan Toy’s 5-part marketing series, you might be interested in reading this summary on Chris the Story Reading Ape’s blog. Links to each episode are listed at the bottom of the post, so if you missed any parts of the series, you can easily click to be directed to the section you’re looking for.

I’d like to thank Susan and Chris for presenting such valuable information to the writing community. And all for free! There are paid seminars out there that don’t offer half of what Susan offers, not just in this series, but on her blog as well. I strongly encourage you to subscribe to Susan’s blog. Spend an hour or two perusing the site and reading the helpful articles there. I would also strongly encourage you to follow Chris’s blog. His blog is unique because it combines author promotion with helpful articles. Chris is constantly combing the net in search of the best and most informative articles. He reblogs or links back to the original articles so authors can read the posts for themselves.

Again, thank you Chris and Susan for everything you do for the writing community!
