    Hi Blog,
    I know what you mean, Savvy authors who promote their books online have learned first hand what works and how to do it. They know how to balance low budget offline promotions with targeted online activities to stimulate book sales. There are an estimated 110 million books being sold online and thousands of book sellers. You have to be more than just concerned about how well your books are selling, you need to be proactive.
    Good Job!
