Bonus 1: Marketing
You’ll also get a copy of my How to Market as an Author Guide which is packed with actions you can take.
Whether you get a traditional publishing agent or self-publish, you are going to need to market your book and bring in book sales.

Some of my clients are working on their second books, one client has just asked to book me next year to edit her third and fourth book.
