I just finished writing, editing, and putting this baby to bed!   Now that the publishing world has drastically changed from whirlwind, cross country, all expenses paid book tours, to a “no” marketing plan, authors are on their own.  Not only do they have to research and write the book, edit and get it just right, now they must blog about it, gather followers on all the social media sites, and, if lucky, get in the door of a bookstore to sell it and have a signing event.  On top of trying to carve out time to write, this could put any good person over the edge! 1.
