1. #Indiechat on Twitter Tuesdays at 9pm EST (8 CST)

2. Self publishing blog reading (A Newbie’s Guide by J.A. Konrath is a good one to start with)

3. Enter EVERY giveaway on Goodreads. Who knows? You might win something!

4. Register for a writer’s forum, I go to Authors by Design. You can try one of many many many.

5. Research book covers to find out how it’s done, and what makes one good. This should include Youtube videos.

And that’s enough to cover your whole weekend. Have a BALL!!!!
