BSU-126 How to promote your book without using social media, by Sandra Beckwith
The combined APSS-Santa Clarita and APSS-LA Book Selling University was held recently at the Marriott Courtyard in Sherman Oaks, CA.

But that is where opportunity lies. Think about what Stephen King said, “What are we afraid of, as humans? Chaos. The outsider.

"Thank you so much for the very informative mentoring session yesterday. Self-publishing is a highly complex, not to mention risky, undertaking. It’s so nice to have an organization like APSS and knowledgeable professionals like yourself to draw on for advice."
