Going on right now: 15 days of amazing content (with prizes) for authors who’d like to learn more about book marketing.
#NaNoProMo (National Novel Promotion Month) is hosted by BadRedhead Media, and stems from the principle that it’s not enough to simply write the book, you have to market it, too.
And, as host Rachel Thomspon says, “Book marketing done correctly isn’t about selling our souls or spamming.”
Indeed. Done right, it can be both fruitful and enjoyable… and not in the least icky.

This year, I’m trying to focus more on building authentic relationships with other promotional experts, and to spend a little less time blogging purely on my own site. It’s part of my belief in mindful marketing: that we should be intentional in our efforts to reach a new audience, and evaluate whether our time is well spent.
