As a public relations executive and in todays world of technology, marketing yourself is free and simple. Networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, LinkedIn, Google +, Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress, and Pinterest are all free and allow the user to connect to the world and upload their information. Do a Google search on other networks that solely deal with ebooks.

Self promotion is the key but not spamming people, rather developing true relationships and communication with the public so they not only appreciate your work, but you as well. In turn, people will share, promote and purchase your work.

You have the tools to bring your work to the world through technology.

Good for you by the way! (less)

It is available still in eBook on Amazon. My new book from 2016 is available in Kindle and print on Amazon. I do wish to format my new book into an audiobook, Shahda. I have not done that yet though. A lot of my audio is on Soundcloud. Thank you for asking. (less)

“What beyond the sunrise and set, beyond body and mind? What then when body and mind have left me, and I am but dust and ash molten with Earth? What then when all that has been left are my words, like this, now, and you are not you, yet another, reading? What immense wonder we are blessed with. Grasp my hand, do not let go. This flight is simply fantastic." - Susan Marie”

“Sometimes I burst into tears because I feel the pains of this world.
Sometimes I burst into laughter because I feel the happiness of this world.
This is what being human feels like.”
Susan Marie, Shahada

“Love need not be denied, only placed where it rightfully belongs." - Susan Marie”
Susan Marie

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first.”
Jim Morrison

“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.”
Jim Morrison

“Where's your will to be weird?”
Jim Morrison

“A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself-and especially to feel, or not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at any moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is.”
Jim Morrison

“That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending - performing. You get to love your pretence. It's true, we're locked in an image, an act - and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you're trying to steal their most precious possession.”
Jim Morrison
