I’m excited about launching a special blog for the Eugeena Patterson Mysteries. The first book in the series, Deep Fried Trouble, will be released in June 2013.

I want to encourage you to spend anywhere from ten to thirty minutes each day on book marketing. You can use this time to brainstorm new ideas and evaluate what did or didn’t work.

Stay consistent with your book marketing. You can do it! read more
