Marketing is an important part of the author process.  Even if you are fortunate enough to be traditionally published, your publisher will still expect you to do basic marketing of your book.  If you are an Indy like myself, marketing is the make or break point of the success of your book.  This week, I have a couple of good articles about the marketing process in addition to general writing tips and a few fun ones about fountain pens and notebooks.  I hope you like them!
