Find the book marketing strategy that will work best for you, your book, and your readers.
The Wordsy Woman philosophy when it comes to book marketing is that there is no one-size-fits-all magic bullet tactic that’s going to work for every author and every book. There is no proven system you can follow that will guarantee your book to become a best-seller. What works for one author, one book, or one reader may not work for another. So I advocate getting back to the marketing basics.
