Episode 44: Book Marketer and Publisher Robyn Crummer-Olson

Book marketer Robyn Crummer-Olson talks to authors of all kinds about how to share their books with the world.

We had the pleasure of speaking with Robyn Crummer-Olson, where she shares the exciting news about her appointment as Publisher at Portland State University’s Ooligan Press. She delivers some real talk about her gold-star author marketing moves, as well as what will torpedo your book selling efforts.

I’d rather talk to 30 people who are raptly listening than 300 who are scrolling on their phones.

We also discuss Lady Cottington’s Pressed Fairy Book and Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. Remember when CATS was the talk of the town? What a long year it’s been.
