Join us here tomorrow when our featured debut author Shobhan Bantwal will be joining us. Shobhan is the author of the Dowry Bride and this is her first virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Book Promotion. Shobhan will be talking about her book and the dreaded phase that she went through going from unpublished to published author. She admits that it should have been a time of excitement and celebration but she dreaded the public relations and marketing which are usually associated with cold calling and getting the door slammed in one’s face. Well, she’ll certainly be surprised when our interview proves to be effortless, she won’t even realize that she’s marketing herself and her book.
