I want to welcome Carolyn back today, as well as our visitors. I hope you all will become followers so you can learn about other authors and great books to read. You never know who you might see featured on my blog.
Carolyn has made a difference for writers everywhere – all steps of the writing career. Her savy information is invaluable. Here are some people whose endorsements make you want to run out and buy all of Carolyn’s books if you don’t already have them.
“Fruga” is a Herculean accomplishment! There’s something here for everybody, and it’s essential for new authors. – Rolf Gompertz, former publicist for NBC, author and speaker.
” . . . about 12 months ago, I began to read about do-it-yourself book publicity. One of the best books I came across was The Frugal Book Promoter: How to do what your publisher won’t by Carolyn Howard-Johnson. If you’re looking for ‘nitty-gritty how-tos for getting nearly free publicity,’ this is the book for you. ” – Tim Bete, Director, Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop, Dayton University
My success with promotion is all because of what I call the “Carolyn Factor.” What’s the “Carolyn Factor”, you ask? Well, whenever I have doubts about doing/writing/promoting/putting myself out there – I think about what you would say to me. You would show me how to do it and then, to borrow from Nike . . . you would say, “Just do it” . . . and then I do. – Leora G. Krygier, author.
It’s been great to have Carolyn Howard-Johnson with me this week.

I have Carolyn’s Fugal Editor, and reviewed it. I also receive her newsletter. I’ve found both helpful in many ways.

I just bought The Frugal Promoter and The Frugal Editor. I’ve been going through them and find them a great resource. I also receive Carolyn’s newsletter and that also offers great information.
Thanks, Dianne and Carolyn.
