    Below is more information on the two marketing sites I mentioned last night. I'll use story cartel in the coming weeks to launch my second book; plan to use rafflecopter soon, too.

    http://www.storycartel.com
    "As a thank you for being part of Story Cartel, we're offering book launch tokens for 50 percent off for the first week of Story Cartel 2.0's launch. This offer will expire after March 26. If you'd like to purchase book launch tokens, you can get them through the link below.

    The good news is that you can buy these tokens now and launch your book whenever you feel like it. The better news is that there's no risk: if you don't get any reviews on your books, we'll refund your money."

    Didn't learn anything. I've come to the conclusion that I need to find someone to do my marketing & promoting. Too many little details to deal with in a marketplace that's constantly changing. I much rather hire someone to guide me through the maze.

      And one of the key decisions we have to make as entrepreneurs is when to do the work ourselves and when to hire someone else. The two most common areas where entrepreneurs hire expertise is in the bookkeeping and financial management and in the marketing. You have made the decision about marketing that I made about statistics. If I need it, hire someone good to do it.

      Tony, it was about marketing your eBook verson how to use the internet to marketing your paper book.

    As I mentioned, if you are looking for a source of inexpensive cover art, my daughter Stephanie Bollinger is looking to expand her portfolio / resume. She will create custom art for you to use on your book jacket but she retains the rights to the art (so she could later release it in a book, or sell prints, or...). You need to pay her a nominal fee for her time (baby sitting rates), credit her in your book and give her a copy of your book (to backup her resume). Should you want to reuse the art for direct marketing of your book, that would be included. Here is some of her art but not all http://sabrinadragonheart.deviantart.com/gallery/
