Survey: What Do Authors Need?

I’m still considering writing Commonsense Zero-Cost DIY Marketing for Authors but I want to see whether there’s a need, and if so, what specifically would help other authors.

My Free Marketing Community Needs You

Gathering Notes and Aiming for January 1st

Spent the last 4 hours gathering 62,279 words of notes for Commonsense Zero-Cost DIY Marketing for Authors. And we still have to filter and sort them all, and then actually write the thing.

January 1st, the proposed launch date, is gonna attack me like a rabid dog.

Will This Book Be Right for You?

But it will include lots of information like
