Author Teri Brown has recently put together a group called, "Fiction Writers Discuss Publicity," and I'm learning a lot. It's invaluable to me as a first time author, especially.Here is the official information, in case you wanna learn more about promotion and publicity, too: This group is for contracted or published novelists to discuss publicity tips on promoting their books. Included will be branding, methods, how to create successful events, cross promotion and other publicity tips. This is not for spamming the list with book advertisements, but rather a place to brainstorm and get tips on promoting your book.

Different, pink and a little bit luminescent, right? But also fun. Yay!
