Learn to be a self-promoter from the best

If you are a writer, the hard truth is that you have to self-promote. How do you do it successfully, without turning off everyone you meet? A debut author recently followed expert self-promoter (not a bad thing at all, trust me) JA Konrath as he did drive-by signings at LA bookstores.

She learned:
- What he said when he first talked to an employee
- How he helped store personnel sell his books
- His clever trick to get them to order more books
- His unusual thoughts about remainders
- How he networks his way to friendship with booksellers – by promoting other authors

Read more of his fascinating approach here.
