The critter in the post image, in case you don’t recognize it, is a sloth. I think sloths are adorable and their sweet faces warm my heart whenever I see pictures of them. So, enjoy the picture–and this week’s articles, and be sure to pop by here again next week for our monthly Carnival of the Indies blog carnival post which will be followed the next day by the publication of our e-Book Cover Design Awards post featuring submissions from December 2018.

“It’s a New Year … and it’s a month that resolutions are created, chewed on, and usually spit out. Either they don’t work. They are rejected. Or it’s easier to do the same thing you’ve always been doing.What are your author and publishing expectations for this year? Have you thought about them? Have you written them down?”

Sandra Beckwith on Build Book Buzz
Have fun in February with book promotion
“Unexpected, peculiar, and just plain fun February holidays will let you spice up your book promotion next month.”

Amy Maroney on Self Publishing Advice From The Alliance Of Independent Authors
Best Marketing Strategies for a Long-Tail Book Promotion
“Wondering how to build a long-tail book promotion rather than triggering a short-term spike in sales of your self-published books?”
