As you start thinking about your book marketing strategies for 2022, be sure to include speaking as one of them. There’s nothing like your ideal readers being able to hear and see your voice and your personality and make that instant connection with you.

We’re sharing about speaking at in-person events, hosting your own podcast, guesting on others’ podcasts, and speaking live with your ideal readers on social media.
