Book Review:

I am an author of poetry and short stories. Many of the things I learned throughout the process, I learned from trial and error. I still struggle with issues such as promotion and marketing (because I am cheap) and I probably need new book covers to increase sales (but I am cheap). My sister, on the other hand, has wrote a few books as well, and has developed a mastery in sales and promotions. She sells her books anywhere and everywhere. 

In the book, the author, Barb D. discusses the basic tenets for writing a book, besides writing the book. Amazon Author Central is a good topic because that's where you create your author profile and add books to your page. Everytime, I write a book, I have to add it to the author profile, so if someone searches for me, all my books are on one page.

You can purchase The Author's Platform: The Beginner's Guide (Building Blocks) (Volume 2)on Amazon in Kindle, paperback, and Kindle Unlimited format.
