John Kremer's People You Should Know Teleseminar Series
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm hosting a weekly teleseminar where I interview someone I think you should know - 1. Because you will learn some useful tips from them and 2. because they offer a service or product I think might help you market your books more effectively. The primary purpose of the teleseminars will be to teach you practical and effective book marketing tips.

This series of teleseminars will take place every Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. Eastern, 5:00 p.m. Pacific, for the next 12 months. If you can make the live teleseminars, you'll be able to ask questions. But every teleseminar will be available for you to listen to  again online any time during the next two years.
