I joined an online group a few weeks ago that’s proven extremely helpful. It provides the sort of help for free that a writer would normally have to pay good money for. Here is the info:
This group is for contracted or published novelists to discuss publicity tips on promoting their books. Included will be branding, methods, how to create successful events, cross promotion and other publicity tips. This is not for spamming the list with book advertisements, but rather a place to brainstorm and get tips on promoting your book.
