    Hi Sally, you’re welcome. I truly hope people take the time to read this post and the others you do on marketing. I’ve a ton of people complaining all day long because their books aren’t selling yet they try none of what you and others suggest.
    I keep pounding the drum with the beat of, “We’re all but snowflakes in a blizzard of authors. To get noticed, we must standout. People aren’t flocking to Amazon and other book buying sites in drooling anticipation of buying our books.”

    This is time consuming but so worth it.
    OK. climbing down off my soapbox.
    Have a great week.
