But how do you stand out from the crowd? How do you get your book noticed? “For book marketing to be successful,” says book publicity expert, Annie Jennings, “you have to cover a lot of bases. Think about book marketing as a wheel and each spoke in the wheel represents another book marketing strategy you can employ”. What are some of these book marketing spokes? Let’s find out!
