Marketing for writers

Marketing in itself is a pain in the ass. Yes. I said it. It’s true. I’m not going to even waste your time to sugar coat it. Add to it, the ever changing  social media, (which today is the number one if not the ONLY) way to market, and you will find yourself in a world of utter confusion.
