excellent essay on self-promotion

Douglas Clegg had this posted up on his LiveJournal this morning. If you’re a writer, go read it!

When Promoting Your Book: Choose Your Own Adventure

Here we go. Two sets of “Top Five Things Not To Do/Top Five Things To Do — When Promoting Your Book.”

Author: Mari Adkins

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
