A Good Start?

Over half a million books are published every year. Most of them are self-published, which means these author must actively market their book themselves. But why do it alone?

That’s why I started Page Bound Success. It’s a place where (mostly) self-published authors can come together. Even if you have an agent, an author usually has to participating in the marketing of that work. But nothing is free. Oh, there’s no charge. However, honestly if you want to others to help you, you need to help them. How?
