“The majority of marketing and publicity departments work on very modest budgets.

Even the ones that purport to be “low cost” are often not.
Our panel of experienced publicists and marketers will talk through three case studies of genuinely small or non-existent budgets. Each practical example will show how you can harness the latest techniques to boost the profile and sales of the books you publish, but without costing a fortune.”
