Debra Owsley of Simply Said Reading Accessories and Martin Johnson of Urban Literature Review talk about the importance of marketing your books!

Simply Said Reading Accessories

my name is Debra Owsley and my company is Simply Said Reading Accessories. I custom design and hand make reading accessories such as “Gift Marks” also known as Bookmarks, Book Thongs, Book Plates and note cards that I call Love Notes; for Authors Book Stores Book Clubs and Book Lovers. This is what I do, but…it’s all about you. I have been perfecting my craft for a little over 2 years as a specialty service.

As an avid reader, I had to find a way to support my “Book Habit”; I have always
been crafty and made some for my clients one year for Christmas, I am a hair
stylist, and they encouraged me to pursue this as a business. I also have a
client who is an author and she commissioned me to custom some for her, thus the
Authors Custom Work came in.
