“No, you don’t have to have a press kit. Then again, you also don’t have to bathe, but most people recommend you do!”

That was easily the money line of this video. I got a good chuckle out of it. Thanks for making this video, Jenna! Making press kits sounds like a lot of fun, actually. I’m going to enjoy this!

What Rock have I been under to not know an audio book was in the works! Excited! I only "Read" via audio books as with others I'm sure will chime in, as our brains converts text into audio internally. Meaning audio books are books effectively and removes a extra brain step. Thanks Jenna!

Great video, Jenna!
Do you have any tips on how to make a book have a bigger impact?
For example, have you ever read a book that you’ve never been able to get out of your mind because it was so powerful? Like that.
Any tips?

A quiver in my loins over marketing? Why, yes. I think I do.... but it’s just from terror😳😬 😆 Thank you so much for breaking down this aspect of it so I’m a little less fearful 😁❤️❤️

Really looking forward to the TSC audiobook and your next giveaway. 😍

Just found your channel today and I love it! I do not write novels but I'm doing a world-story for role playing games. I'm getting your sample chapters cause I just read your book's review and it sounds super interesting!! Keep it up!

I want to write a romance story between two males. But my friend says that they think it won't be well recieved or do as well, because you know, homophobes, should I still do it? If not, I could always change one of the characters into a girl, even if I think it won't come out with as much passion as it would have. What do you think? I know it doesn't have much to do with the video, but I still wanted somebody's opinion
Thanks for your time💛

I'm already subscribed, yay!
I honestly never thought about a press kit for a series but that is not a bad idea.
I have been told by a couple bloggers/reviewers that uploading most of your press kit info to a Google doc also works because it is so easy to share, especially for bloggers doing a shoutout for an upcoming release or local newspapers who want some info.

Wow! This completely simplified this. I've always wondered what on earth this is, but everyone is so vague on it when I research. This clarifies everything and showed how SIMPLE, THANK YOU!

Hey Jenna! I have a question about prologues.
You said in your prologue video that every prologue should have a purpose to the story. Can there be an exception where the prologue isn't exactly necessary, but hinges mostly on character development?
