    Hi again Gina! Thanks for stopping by again. 😉
    May I ask if as an author you have a favorite marketing method that has worked well for you?

      I like saying “Hi.”

      So far my favorite marketing method is building rapport with readers. I’ve chosen to make my website and my newsletter the two places I put most of my efforts into for building relationships.
