Book Marketing & PR, Friday Round-Up of Marketing Links, Self Publishing Your Book

Best Links for Book Marketing/ Promotions around the Web. May 11th 2012

Hi folks,

Did you hear that on June 16th all seven of the Harry Potter books will be available on the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library? That’s huge news! I’m sure this move will spark more and more traditional publishers to enroll in KDP Select in order to be a part of it. I love the fact I can borrow books on my Kindle, just like from a real library. What are your thoughts?

Enjoy your weekend, whatever you’re up to!
