So, we're almost through with Jackie Lapin's series of three guest posts! I know, sad!
But this third post from Publicist Jackie Lapin is worth the wait. Most authors who have read my The Frugal Book Promoter know that speaking is the number one way for authors to promote their work and actually sell their books. Publicist Jackie Lapin offered her list of podcasts and radio on this blog (yes, it's still available) on Friday, July 28, and her list of virtual summit opportunities on Friday, July 21. When you're through reading this, be sure to visit those two blogs, too.
If you are asking why the do-it-yourself queen of the #HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writing (that's me!) is suggesting you pay for lists like this: It's because they have been vetted which means they may be better than the ones an author builds herself), and because even frugal authors may prefer to be earning money speaking than doing the required research to find the resources on the Web! In fact, speaking is one of the few ways to market a book that can also line your marketing-budget pockets with some extra spending money!
