What belief do you hold about your industry that is not shared by many? by Julie Catania-Shady

Marketing a book is harder than writing a book. Authors pour their hearts into writing, fueled by passion and creativity, creating worlds and characters in solitude. Writing, while tough, is a cozy solo adventure where authors call the shots. But once you pen the last word the real adventure begins! Authors step into a topsy-turvy world of marketing, where they must master the art of shouting about their work. This is hard for so many and doesn’t come naturally. A solid marketing plan is key because writing ‘The End’ is just the beginning of reaching the hearts of readers.
