Young Adult Author Reviews The Frugal Book Promoter

A review of The Frugal Book Promoter by Sally Bair

I just finished self-publishing a juvenile novel, Williwaw Winds, and consider Carolyn Howard-Johnson's book, The Frugal Book Promoter, as one of the most helpful resources in marketing my book.

Carolyn not only addresses nearly every aspect of marketing, she includes very detailed instructions in how to pitch your book to a host of sources, how to receive free publicity, and how to make up your media kit. Her instructions and tips are sprinkled throughout with important, helpful Web sites and samples. I haven't had my copy of her book very long and already it's dog-eared from such frequent use. It's a winner!"
Reviewer Sally Bair is author of Williwaw Winds at and a member of Wisconsin Regional Writers Association.

Hope this email finds you well . . . heck, I also hope this finds you having just won the lottery. I am sure you are busy, so thanks for the few moments you have.

In a nut shell, we are 3 guys with day jobs working toward a dream with our graphic novel, THE FIELD ON THE EDGE OF THE WOODS. We'd love to hear what you think.

Your professional 2 cents would be greatly appreciated as we push forward with BOOK 2!
