Podcasting by Authors
I've just added two wonderful articles on how to create and publish

Web-Savvy Writer: Book Promotion with a Tech Twist, and the other

newsletter. I think between the two articles you'll get a good idea of

You can still listen to this free teleseminar I did on how to create and
market books using teleseminars. It will be available to listen to for at
least another week or two (until I get back from BookExpo America).

$30.00 for that teleseminar. So listen to it now before you have to pay.
Go here to listen:
You want to learn how to do teleseminars and use them to create new
