Promoting Your Book When the World Is On Fire

Promotion—especially self-promotion—doesn’t always feel easy. So how do we do it? For Social Media Week, literary agent Mina Hamedi helps us make room for celebration.

“The release of my debut, in the second year of a global pandemic, was by turns surreal and euphoric and completely demoralizing. It was a dream come true—and it took place entirely in isolation. [As] a way to cope with the anxieties and terrors of our current world, I’ve found solace with reading, with my own writing. I know that there are others like me, who need the writing and the reading to exist in this world.” (Melissa Larsen, writer)
