About the class: You’ve written a novel, now what? Even if you are with a publishing house, you can benefit from this class. Learn the tricks of the trade. Blog tours are all about visibility, but it’s the reviews that count.  You aren’t just selling your novel, you’re selling “you.” Become friends with your readers and they’ll help you sell, sell, sell. Want to know who to contact in terms of magazine placement, etc? I have you covered. Let’s do this…together!
