How To Publish & Promote Your Book

Hey gang! Happy Friday, and to all of my Northeastern US friends: Bundle up and stay safe.

Today I'd like to announce the launch of a book that I think many of us might benefit from reading. It's authored by our good blogging buddy, L. Diane Wolfe, and it's all about getting your writing out there and into the hands of the folks who want to read it. (And maybe a few who DIDN'T know they wanted to read it. ;)

If you don't know Diane, she's an accomplished public speaker and motivator, as well as an ace blogger. Definitely check her out!
