I’ve spent the last six months or so preparing for the release of my book and trying to get the word out on a limited budget. I’m sure most self-published or indie authors are in the same boat. So, I just wanted to share a few websites that I think will be helpful to you in one way or another. I’ll continue to add to the list as I come across others. Of course, not every website is a perfect fit so go exploring and see what you like.
Feel free to leave a comment or ask a question below. If you’re willing to share other sites, I’ll be happy to check them out and add them to the list. So, in no particular order…

Until next time… stay cool!
