Reviewed by Helen Dunn Frame

Carolyn Howard Johnson’s second edition of The Frugal Book Promoter, How to Do What your Publisher Won’t outlines what writers can do themselves. It offers good advice and is a most complete reference source for authors with little to extensive experience. Carolyn is great about networking and sharing. Back in the day, publishers helped to market books. In recent years, the landscape has changed dramatically and authors have to handle the brunt if not all the promotion even if published by a large traditional company. Not all writers can afford to hire help but they can afford this book. It’s worth adding to one’s library if only for the clarification about writing reviews on Amazon.
