  1. Thank you so much for your website for it is most helpful. I’m a first time new author trying to promote my book. The information that you have provided has pointed me in the right direction. And as you have advised, as I gain followers for my book I will promote every author who has helped me, starting with you :) I will like you on my face book page and follow you on tweeter. :)

  2. Having read this I thought it was really enlightening. I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this short
    article together. I once again find myself personally spending way too much
    time both reading and commenting. But so what,
    it was still worthwhile!
