All Indie authors very quickly realise that promotion of their book is every bit as hard, if not harder, than writing the damn thing in the first place. Most would likely also acknowledge that marketing their work is more tedious and frustrating than the dreaded editing process.
It’s also alien to many of us to bum on about how good our book is. We view that as being ‘cocky,’ and certainly where I come from, bragging is viewed as a social ‘no no.’
But although the temptation is to cross our fingers and hope for the best, whilst concentrating on writing our new book, promotion and marketing is unfortunately a necessary evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars It’s entertaining and funny, but also poignant

An absolute must for all pet owners and animal lovers.
What a gem this is. It’s entertaining and funny, but also poignant. You can really tell that the author has a love of animals and truly cares about his work. I love stories based on real life situations and this book gives an insight into the complexities of what at first seems a straightforward job.I must say I admire the way this man has made a successful career change, not only from bank manager to pet sitter, but to author as well-it’s very well written. Read it yourself and it would make an ideal gift for any pet owner or animal lover.
Amazing! Thank you.
Come to think about it – I love bragging! (I mean, promotion.)
