Thanks for your time and insight concerning "the marketing issue." I agree that the author bears the weight and responsibility to push his/her product. I too am considering hiring a PR representative to handle ;radio interviews, book signings, and specific magazine reviews and interviews. Does this sound like a winner to you?
Thanks for replying. I look forwarding to connecting with you and drawing from your well of knowledge. As it relates to marketing and PR, how necessary is it for an author to hire someone to help with marketing and PR work?
Hi Laura!! Thanks for becoming my friend. You realize, of course, being my pal et al, you'll be invited to all my Tupper Ware Parties and my annual "TEA ON THE GREEN"...( a get-together of various writers in the area, sipping King Cole Tea and eating crumpets on my lawn, down by the river.) It's a Whale of a Party and I hope you can come. Just flirt with a pilot who owns a plane and he'll fly you here for free. (ORRR...a nice Truck Driver who owns a trusty 18 Wheeler.)
Have a nice day, Laura and I'll talk to you later.......Hugs, Deanna :-)
