  • Hi Julia and Jared I am just starting the process of having my manuscript looked at by Balboa press and am at a loss as to where to start my marketing - I live in New Zealand - I have approached a couple of book stores but really need to know how to start a marketing plan as I want to be a success. I want this book to lead to me being able to write and sell more - plus I would love to speak publicly about my experiences, etc. Are you able to assist, many thanks Ruth Anne Caukwell
  • Good day Mr. and Mrs. Drake, Thanks for sharing this advice very helpful information. The online plateform is the beginning point to formulate branding to attract our audience.
  • Thank you Jared& Julia, self publishing has been a bit much for me but I am willing to see where it goes.
  • Yer it is good. I don't really get a lot of time seeing I have so many things going at once. I have lost count at the moment, so I hope I can make the most of this site I think it was the pitching a screen role that got me first
