If you're an author, you know that blogs are one of the top book marketing tools in this day and age. But what you may not know is how to create and maintain one successfully! A great author blog should attract new readers while preserving a faithful audience, offer interesting content that "fills a gap" in the market, and seamlessly lead into people purchasing your book.

This course, taught by Jessica Festa — owner and writer of the solo female travel blog Jessie on a Journey — will show you how to do all that. Here's how to build an amazing author blog, which you can use to sell your books like hotcakes.
