Read this one sitting & it was an absolute gold mine of information... which honestly was no surprise to me having followed Book Launchers for some time on YouTube. Marketing for nonfiction authors is a completely different beast altogether than fiction. Julie does a wonderful job in this book covering just about everything there is to consider for nonfiction authors trying to set their books up for success.

Read this delightful little book in one sitting this afternoon - if you need a little joy and encouragement in your life this definitely isn't the usual self-help fare!

Looking for a great #FigureSkating biography to bring to the beach? I recently put together a list of must read skating biographies for the great folks at Shepherd Books! The Sonja Henie biography by Raymond Strait and Sonja's brother Leif is on the list: https://shepherd.com/best-books/figure-skating-biographies-youll-ever-read

History - CHECK
Behind the scenes figure skating drama - CHECK

What more could you want in a #Bookish summer #nonfiction read?

Kerrbearlib Oh, that sounds good! Is that Sasha Cohen on the cover? 12mo
SkateGuard @Kerrbearlib I think it's an illustration but she does have a great spiral like Sasha Cohen! :) Definitely recommend this book though. (edited) 12mo

What an interesting book this is. Bev Smith has been a figure skating insider and trusted journalist for decades and in this book, she really takes figure skating lovers behind the curtains... talking to athletes, judges, coaches and other overlooked people in the skating community. If you haven't read this one yet, you need to!

Kerrbearlib Adding to my TBR! 12mo
