As a self-published author, I am constantly in need of promotional ideas and inspiration in order to keep myself afloat in the publication world. Not only did I find this volume beneficial for my business purposes, but it is also a thoroughly enjoyable read. How often can that be said of an instructional manual? I am excited to endorse this volume as a necessary addition to any promotional publication manual. Especially for the technologically handicapped individual in computer language and guidance, I find this a must-read/must-have inspirational reference tool and resource. Five stars for Rebecca Richmond and Claire Pickering for their assistance in the world of promotion. Thank you both for sharing this amazing self-help volume!
