Kellie Sheridan is a Canadian based author of YA books ranging from the zombie apocalypse to contemporary romance—while also "secretly" writing books for adults under various pen names. She has been self-publishing her work since early 2013 while also working with authors through small publishing houses or offering author services to the indie community.

When not directly surrounding herself with books, Kellie can be found on the YA WordNerds YouTube channel, talking about books. Her favorite authors include Patricia Briggs, Anne Bishop and Rachel Vincent.

Her latest book, Two's Company (April 2017) is the second book in the Four of a Kind series.

How to Market a Book (3rd ed., ebook) by Joanna Penn
This giveaway is run by the ShoreIndie Contest. Neither Joanna Penn nor her publisher are in any way affiliated with this contest.

From the book description on Amazon.com:
How to Market a Book is for authors who want to sell more books, but it's also for those writers who want to think like an entrepreneur and build a long-term income. It's for traditionally published authors who want to take control of their future, and for self-published authors who want to jump-start a career.

There are short-term tactics for those who want to boost immediate sales, but the focus of the book is more about instilling values and marketing principles that will help your long-term career as a writer.
