Email eminent Book Publishers

Throw a few bones (blurbs) to a Vanity Press
If you are looking for promotional freebies and other magical marketable incentives, luring notorious vanity presses can do the job for you. To make the Mexican wave happen smoothly across the “authors’ life-work diggers,” come up with two or more made-up inspiring blurbs — shortened descriptions of books at the back of the book covers. Don’t forget to play this catch and mouse game cleverly, because there’s always a big fish watching. But if you aren’t aware of how Vanities work, do not attempt this marketing stunt that might sting you in the back.

Create a YouTube channel
