The Busy Moms Guide to Novel Marketing by Jamie Foley and Angelo Castillo

15th May 2022.

I loved the conversational, upbeat style from the moment I started reading this excellent guide. It was like having a discussion with friends. Having read several books on marketing, I was looking for something that focused on novels and this was a perfect fit for me. The advice and examples were practical, easy to implement and delivered with authority and panache.

I came away, filled with confidence and a new determination to improve my marketing efforts – along with some new ideas and approaches I hadn’t considered before.

If you want a practical guide, delivered by enthusiastic indie authors, who have plenty of experience to share, this is a great place to start.
