How To Make Use Of Locations In Your Book Marketing

For today's Monday Marketing blog, I want to discuss using locations in your writing as a way of being creative in your marketing! 🙂 Is it shocking that I actually enjoy writing these Marketing posts?  When I first started it was to help solidify my own marketing ideas as well as help others, as I know so many writers either hate marketing, don't know where to start or just try and avoid it.

Marketing is one of those words that most writers dread.  We aren’t really into tooting our own horns.   Our comfort lies in building worlds, spinning tales, breathing life into characters…so this “marketing” malarkey doesn’t sit well with us.
