On book marketing front, does this make sense to anyone?
“Mailing list — Hands down the most useful tool, however you use it, is your mailing list. Start collecting emails before your book is ready (with a coming soon landing page), use it as an announcement list when your book is ready, and use it to consistently communicate with your audience. There’s no better way for an author to talk to their audience and sell books than a newsletter.”
Do people DO email any more? Would YOU like to get emails from me about my book(s)? Do you get emails from any author about their books? Do those emails contain NEWSLETTERS?
