Then, it was business associates and association members. It became evident to Linda that if she were going to make a profit she would have to expand her sphere of influence. As a professional speaker and trainer she had a built-in audience. But, even this proved not enough of a market to make her book selling a success. By now, her husband was wondering when some of the dollars spent to self-publish were going to start coming in instead of going out. When Linda solicited the advice of other authors about marketing and selling their books their suggestions were to hire a publicist or a pr firm. inda knew this was out of the question for her.
