Kimberley Grabas’ post (below graphic) about the necessity of building an email list should prompt writers to ratchet up their marketing game.

But I am hearing more and more that building an email list and using it regularly is central to marketing one’s work – going to have to rearrange my priorities … maybe. “Maybe?” Yeah right. That’s a procrastination word. Still the more I read posts such as Kimerley’s the more I get inspired.
