What inspired your current release? I noticed that there is ???
-The Art of Self Promotions, was inspired by XoXo Publishing authors.

course and on going projects.

themselves and their books regardless if it is  an electronic release or

What are the online classes going to be like?

ones where the authors will email me a series of questions and I'll
respond on line.

-Signing up is free. The only fee is for the online course, which includes
a copy of The Art of Self Promotions, and various projects.

What the best part of owning XOXO Publishing?
-Seeing new debut authors with tears in their eyes or a smile when signing
their books.  Receiving an email thanking me and XoXo Publishing staff
for making their dreams come true as an author.

are some pitfalls to avoid?
- To please check out and follow our submissions guidelines on our website

publishing and writing it is una passione. My family is important to me

Hello Gina,
Thank you very much for asking me to help you with this project along with your amazing staff Penny, Amanda, Tina, Liz, Kim, Tim, Duane and everyone else on the team. As you know the Literary Foundation has approved of your book and it will carry the logo.

I have read your advance copy. I am impressed at how many bestselling authors, reviewers and people have contributed by sharing their thoughts, personal views, and resources. At long last I can say that I have a book that is easy to understand how the marketing and promotional concept works. This is the book that we have all been waiting for, The Art of Self Promotions.

I couldn't find a copy of the book is it available in stores or only on line? By reading the blog above this is one book we've been missing in bookstores. Hardy
