    in Writing

    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 AccessoriesHello, 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. www.simplysaid.netUrban Literary ReviewWe are a community-service program dedicated to literary news andauthor interviews.If you are interested in appearing on our show and discussing yourbook, please send all emails to our executive producer Tiah Short attiah@dcbookman.com.
