From the Author
Making personal appearances in and selling books to schools and libraries can be a wonderful source of revenue for an author.
To take full advantage of these unique settings to sell your book, you must first have a good overall understanding of how to market yourself and your book. That book must be of high quality, meaning it should be well-written, professionally edited and proofread, and produced to industry standards. Secondly, it helps to have the right tools at hand to help you easily promote and sell your book. That's where Class Act comes in.
In this book, I share everything I wish I'd known when I started out promoting my new books. I'm offering you what I learned through real-life experience in this handy collection of tips and how-to's, along with all the forms and other resources I developed along the way. I want to save you the learning curve: Someone should benefit from all that hard work!
