Bangk! and Frack! author Mark Wesley is a producer in his other life. So, he naturally had to use the skills he’d developed down the years to promote his books.

If you have written a novel and want people to buy into what you’ve created it’s a good idea to promote yourself on social media. And even create your own YouTube channel for your book. You could give a flavour of the story if you have enough material, as Martin had, or take your potential readers on a tour of your novel’s locations, if you have mastered the ability to shoot and edit from your iPhone as Muddy Water author Neil Watson did.
