Promoting Your Book Internationally

Is Indie book promotion for worldwide consumption worth the effort? I took that challenge and tested a novel series and children’s book in other countries. Since the Annalisse series has a travel thread blended with crime throughout all books, I jumped in to test the market for crossover appeal.

I am a new writer and this is my first venture. It's an action romance series of four books, beginning with this one. The stories are set in Wales on the Welsh Celtic coast.

I'd really love you to read and review it, if you enjoy action romance novels.

Best wishes and hope to hear from you,
Nell
