Win a SIGNED ebook of On the Struggle to Self Promote: Notes from the Trenches, by Kiini Ibura Salaam

There are a lot of self promotion guides out there for writers, many of which are obsolete within months of their publication. This book is rather different. It focuses on the skills we all need as writers to maintain our sanity long term.

After over 20 years as a writer, Kiini Ibura Salaam is fascinated by all the backstage psychological wrangling writers go through to sustain their careers. With a regular column on writing, Kiini has written almost 100 mini-essays exploring the nitty, gritty of what it takes to sustain a writing career. 

Salaam's "Notes from the Trenches" series takes an inside look at everything from the psychology of being a writer to the logistics of sustaining a writing practice to the business of writing. In this volume--On the Struggle to Self-Promote--Salaam shares the perils, pitfalls, and challenges of self-promotion, while suggesting approaches to viewing self-promotion as an act of honoring and sharing your artistic creations.
