Not Twitter.  Not Facebook.  Not on Google Plus.  Not with family or friends.  No, these aren’t places you should promote your book on.

This month, we opened our doors for reader questions about publishing, self-publishing, numbers, writing and just generally what it is like to be a writer.  Most of these questions have to do with “numbers” and by this our readers want the cold hard numbers.
