What about social media marketing?
and why do we do it? Social media marketing is nothing new. Authors have been using it for years. I personally have been marketing my work on social media since the early 2000s because it was the only thing we could do and feel successful.

Elden Ring and George RR Martin together?
I don’t get excited about epic or high fantasy too much these days. But Elden Ring caught my attention. You have to admit the trailer is stellar.
