Talking Points:

  • Videos (Great for helping authors shorten & practice their pitch, bad for selling books)
  • MyBookTable (Forced us to get every book on every platform. Getting all our books on iBooks was a bit of a project)
  • Email (Tried weekly and went back to monthly)
  • SumoMe
  • Contests KingSumo
  • PermaFree
  • BookBub
