Marketing your book

This morning I talked to a publisher.  It seems writing is just one step - now comes the hard part - marketing!  Know thy audience should be every writer's 11th commandment.  After all, what good is a book if no one reads it?  And how do you connect with your audience?  Yes, you've got it - marketing. 

Meanwhile, you might want to consider asking an attorney about incorporating yourself as a publisher. Give yourself any name you like - Heartbeat Publications sounds good, don't you think? Apparently, becoming your own LLC is a terrific tax write-off.

And if you self-publish, don't forget that bar code. That way you can sell your book in stores and shops.  The things we writers never knew.

For now, though, here is the possible (very probable cover) to my memoir, Again In a Heartbeat.  Hope you like it! 
All the best to my sisters in the writing circle,
